Enjoyed the saison in a snifter glass.
Pours a nice light golden color, medium head with very nice lacing.
Smell is tangy and earthy, good yeast.
Flavor is very, very nice. Complex yet light and acceptable sour tang.
Mouthfeel was a touch thin for me, would have liked slight higher carbonation, but still very good.
I found this saison to be an approachable and sessionable beer and would serve as a great introduction to saisons for the uninitiated.
