A brilliant gold, this Saison is bright and clear. A large, clean white head is heavy and rocky, a strong one nearly a full finger's height after peaking at two. Plenty of patching clings as it recedes.
This beer's overall profile is light but firm, with a gently musty, dusty earthiness and spices under an even base of pale malts with underlying floral and herbal notes, lemon zest gently adding to the depth in each sniff and each sip. A lightly dry, vinous sort of character is a major part of the character.
The feel is bright, crisp and clean in a light body with a strong carbonation that doesn't take away from the soft strength, but it does add a strong spritziness that, with the dryness, throws things off ever so slightly.

The can says "Postmodern beer". I can't tell if these guys have their tongues firmly planted in their cheeks or are gigantic douchebags. It poured a cloudy yellow with a big fluffy white head. The smell is some grassy hops and a bit of citrus. The taste is dominated by the hops. It's piney and grassy, very little malt sweetness to offset. The astringency of it lingers on the palate. The mouthfeel is pretty aggressively carbonated. I dunno, I was hoping for something a little more. Thoroughly underwhelming.
