750mL Bottle bottled on 6/2013
A-Poured a robust golden straw color. The body is on the hazy side. A very thin white head was poured and receded back into the body. The lacing of the beer is there but minimal and stays on the glass.
S-Aroma is full of citrus zest of lemon and lime. The yeast gives off a pepper smell and the malt is perceived as freshly baked bread crust. There is a funkiness to this beer that melds well with the rest of the aroma.
T-That funkiness found in the nose is more profound in the taste. Yeast driven the taste is with a rounded citrus/acidic taste full of esters. The wheat and pale malt give a nice back bone to the yeast forwardness and the hops though subtle, help to keep it a nice rounded enjoyable beer.
M-Definition of a saison. More on the thin side for the mouth feel with a dry finish. Nicely carbonated.
O-A very enjoyable saison. The funkiness threw me off at first because I was not expecting any brett characteristics. Still highly enjoyable and love the drinkability with the low abv. Perfect for a 90 plus degree night here in southeast PA.
