This pours a real, middle period Rothko color -- burnished and glittering. No trace of head or particulate to take comfort in, but this is a cask so it's to be expected.
The nose is classically informed: rustic yeasts coupled with unassuming malts. But then, nestled into the traditional saison structure are moments of lime zest and a vinous underpinning that is integrated more elegantly than I could have initially imagined.
Taste is mellow but decidedly nuanced; juicy, malty, faintly sour, spicy in a supportive way. Here, the lime has even more of a pronounced presence but never such that its burdensome or unwelcome to me. I would not be surprised if it discomfited some purists but again, it's so excellently integrated that I can only really marvel at it.
The mouthfeel is good to really good. Wine dry but lush and wonderfully persistent.
Hopefully, it is sufficient enough praise to say I already desire more of this, that I desperately want to pair it with tacos, and that I am (perhaps naively?) anticipating its ensuing carbonation, bottling and mass distribution because it really is a nice saison.
