4.06/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance:
Murky, dirty yellow body hosts plenty of carbonation and a thin, white head that has mediocre retention and leaves no lacing. The rush of bubbles is actually audible.

Aroma:
Nice and spiced. It's nothing out of character for the style, but it is pleasant and your nose will thank you for this one. Fresh ground pepper and coriander, lemon zest, pungent Belgian yeast, and a hint of leather. Overall it's very sweet and earthy.

Taste:
Quite sweet and pleasantly funky. All attributes noted in the aroma are present in taste. Only the slightest tinge of bitterness immediately upon sipping.

Mouthfeel:
Smooth and sweet medium(ish) bodied brew. Gobs of carbonation. Clean and dry finish.

Overall:
Fantastic example of one of my personal favorite styles. This will make a great grillin' companion. Easy to drink and refreshing, you definitely want to add this to your shopping list.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

From notes.
Light straw, clumpy lace. Nose and taste are lemons, zest, cloves, spice. Nose is a lot less than taste tho.. Full bodied and in your face from first sip, as is Stillwater's wont, tho the taste does feel somewhat over spiced thus disconnected. Almost like a favour had been added too late. Dry finish and zesty palate
Good drinking tho.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip

A - Slightly hazy burnt orange/amber body with plenty of bubbles racing to the top. 2-finger pure white head that retains for the entire experience; literally never fades. The carbonation just keep building that head back up. Beautiful lacing. One of the more pleasing beers to look at.

S - A very good balance of yeast, hops, and sweetness. I love the saison yeast in the nose which is followed by mild citrus peel and just a very light touch of flowery hops.

T&M - Lively carbonation makes this a drier beer, but not nearly as dry as champagne. Still retains a nice thirst-quenching character. I really like the balance of yeast and hops in this beer. A hoppier saison for sure but the yeast keeps telling you it's a Belgian-style saison. Hops give a citrus peel bitterness likened to kumquat and lemon peel. A small dose of candy sugar and malts sweetens things up just a bit.

O - I really liked this and could definitely down a few of these. Saison-dry while remaining refreshing. Great flavors throughout the experience.
