A Saison in a can??? Yes, please...

A - A fairly active pour that yields a bit more than three fingers worth of crisp airy fluffy pure white colored frothy goodness comprised of lots and lots of big chunky bubbles... Rock solid retention... Once settles there is a swirled lacing with a heavy dollop in the center of the glass and a modest collar... The color is a pale to medium gold... There is a very slight haziness throughout... A slight bit of lacing clings to the glass...

S - Lots of lemon zest... Fresh cut grass... Some wheat notes... Belgian yeast... Green apples... Pears... Perhaps some light white pepper notes... Deep and complex... Each whiff reveals a new subtle nuance...

T - The spice component is dialed up several notches on the palate... Sage... White pepper... Some mint notes as well... Tart citrus... Lots of grassy / wheat notes... Some flaky white biscuit as well... The Belgian yeast component lingers beneath the surface and adds nice depth and complexity...

M - Light to medium bodied... Brisk carbonation... Crisp and refreshing... Starts with a touch of dryness... The dryness intensifies throughout... The finish is a bit leathery...

D - I picked this one up on a whim and was quite happy that I did... While this one may fall a bit short of world class Saison, it's not too far off... There's a lot to offer in this 4.5% offering from Stillwater Artisan Ales... I can't say a single bad thing about this brew... I'm rather infatuated with it at this moment... Cheers...
