look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

On-tap at Churchkey, served in a tulip glass.

A- Pours a hazy yellow color, topped with a big white head that recedes to a collar and leaves nice lacing.

S- Hay, dry earthy funk, grassy dandelion aromas, also some floral aromas and nice honey. The aroma is great, and very complex, a beer I could smell all day.

T- Dry, earthy and herbal, dandelion and honey are both on the milder side and work nicely together, has a bit of fruitiness and tartness, a bit of lemon.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel, finish is very, very dry.

O- A very tasty saison, had this alongside Arthur and preferred this by a bit, would love to drink this again sometime.
