Very sweet, with lots of lemon and a bit of pepper. Huge fluffy head.

Ohio's Belgian beer makers steps deeper into the farmhouse culture with a rustic, fruity, spicy and effervescent taste that perfectly captures the essence of the southern Belgian and northern French countryside.

Rockmill's saison is a bright golden hue, laced with mild unfiltered haze. The first whiff is earthy with peppers, straw and damp hay but with a simmering citrus, orchard fruitiness underneath. Its light candied taste is pilsner-sweet and sprinkled with a powdered sugar character.

Its bubbly effervescence lightens its body and dissolves the sweetness over the course of the middle palate. While the estery taste of dried lemon, orange and apple are prominent, its the spice character that pulls forth to offer up fresh-cracked peppercorn, cumin, lemongrass and dill.

With a stern bitterness to rise in finish, the ale lifts from the palate effortlessly as its champagne character pops off the tongue. All contributes to its dry and peppery finish with faint alcohol warmth. Its medium-light body trails with fresh-cut grass, lemon pepper and sassafras.

Bottle date: 04/25/14

A: This one pours an attractive apricot color. There is very little head with an aggressive pour, which dissipates into a small white rim. Much less head than typical saison.

S: A lemony funky aggressive nose. Lemon is totally dominant. Little sourness.

T: Funky, lemon, and a little weird. It is unbalanced with the lemon citrus totally in the forefront. It is dry and slightly sour

MF: light and effervescent.

O: I cannot believe this is $9 for a 375ml, when Dupont is in the $5 range. It basically tastes like a pale ale with lemon concentrate.
