Served on-draught into a 10 oz pils glass at Elk Mountain. Reviewed from notes. Expectations were moderately high; I enjoy Elk Mountain's beers. Not paired with food (though free popcorn is available at Elk Mountain).

A: Pours a 1.5 finger head of fair cream and thickness, and good retention. Colour is a clear gold.

Sm: Pleasant orange peel and citrus ester hops. Cream and clean barley. A mild strength aroma.

T: Light orange peel over a clean barley foundation. Pleasant, with some cream on the open. Some light yeasty notes disrupt the finish - very intrusive and imbalanced for a saison, but refreshing and well built. Hot horribly complex, but enjoyable.

Mf: Smooth and wet, suiting the flavours in a general sense. It's also sharp - perhaps overcarbonated.

Dr: Drinkable and refreshing for the style, but also simple and boring. I might have it again, but if you're at Elk Mountain I recommend their darker beers instead.
