750 ml caged and corked bottle (labeled as Petite Saison, 6% ABV). Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about a half inch off-white head that sticked around for a while. There's a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like grainy malt, hay, citrus peel, yeast and some apricots. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like grainy malt, peppery spice, hay, citrus peel, bananas, apricots, and some earthy mustiness. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's nice and refreshing with moderate carbonation. I thought this was good, but then I don't think I've ever had anything from Rockmill that I haven't liked. Definitely worth picking up! $12.99 a bottle.

12.7oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Goldenrod color, opaque/hazy with a thin head that quickly settles
S: Bluejacket nails this: wheat, hay, yeast, citrus and apricot
T: Wheat, citrus, a distinct sourness that seems almost like it's yeast-based (more complex and distinct from just the citrus), and a bit of stone fruit
P: Light-bodied, sour, crisp and carbonated
O: Really enjoyable and complex. One of my favorite Rockmill brews to date
