Color of a dirty penny. 1-2" head that settles to a small film that sits on top the whole time. The aroma & taste is true to the style, very earthy, malty with a touch of sweetness & a little dry in the finish. Light on hops but a full flavored body of a beer. Rockmill hit the target on this one. Fantastic representation of the style!

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.
