4.66/5  rDev +18.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Poured from the can into willi becher pint glass. A truly remarkable looking beer, with very lively carbonation rising through the hazy golden body to support a massive dome of creamy white head. It drops to form some beautiful columns and crags, leaving webbed lacing on the side of the glass. It would be hard to improve the look of this beer.

The aroma is clearly Saison-esque. Cracker malts, light green apple skins, white plum nectarine, with an herbal hop aroma.

Very full flavored for a session beer! Very dry throughout, with a light to medium strength hop bitterness, and a light sour cereal grain finish. Notes of fresh herbs, lemon, nectarine fruitiness (minus the sweetness) and cracker-like malts on the palate. Carbonation is very active, with a lighter body beer. Dry, effervescent.

This is a drinkable saison, with a lowish alcohol content and robust amount of flavor and character. It's a perfect anytime beer, and would likely pair very well with any number of food dishes. It is hard to beat this beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25

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.
