Notes/Commercial Description:
A clear and simple expression of the delicate interplay between noble hops and farmhouse yeast. Throughout Northern Europe, light-bodied, well-hopped, low alcohol table beers were often the beverage of choice with all meals at times and in places where the water wasn’t always safe to drink.

Poured from a bottle provided by ottovon, into a tulip. A session beer with saison yeast and noble hops.

Cloudy apricot in color, nearly opaque. Big, fluffy head of translucent off-white foam becomes a soapy top layer with some splotches on the walls.

Light and bright aroma. Some sweet wheat, spicy and floral hops, a touch of pear.

Like a saison lite. A touch of musty grain, subtle pear, a little pepper, touch of banana. Lingering mango notes after the swallow, but a mostly dry finish.

Medium-light body, smooth. Moderate carbonation, a good amount of fizz as it moves. Clean and light; refreshing.

Flavorful for a very light brew. Refreshing and thirst-quenching.

A- pours a translucent golden color with a finger and a half of bone white head. Ok head retention with a fair amount of lacing.

S- subtle delicate aromas. Cracked grain and rustic cracker like malt up front. Spicy and fruity esters from the yeast with a musty note. A floral herbaceous kiss of noble hop on the finish.

T- bready cracker like malt with a fluffy wheat note hits the palate at first. Lemon zest, spice and a hint of pear blends in mid palate. Musty yeast character with some floral noble hop flavor and bitterness brings balance next. Very dry crisp finish that gets you ready for the next sip! This would be incredible with food.

MF- fluffy slick mouthfeel with a very light body. Soft scrubby bubble like carbonation... Lol.

D- suberbly drinkable!

Overall for the ABV this beer is wonderful. Pair it with food and it will sing!

A: poured a golden straw in color with pale orange highlights and a nice finger of head that left good lacing sticking to the glass.

S: lots of sweet belgian yeast comes out first on the aroma with citrus, spice, a little barnyard funk, some grains and hints of pear fruit.

T: bubblegum character was apparent on the first sip alongside citrus, clove with other spices, barnyard funk, pear fruit, and sweet belgian yeast notes to round out this nice saison.

M: the brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a sweet yeasty, citrusy, mild fruit, slight funky, spice and prickly finish.

O: definitely a good siason brew and didn't expect nothing less from the peeps @ jester king

Poured into a tulip.

Appearance
Hazy straw/gold with 1-2 fingers of fluffy white head. Good retention and low carbonation.

Nose
Excellent Belgian yeast aromas. Clove, pear, bubblegum, pils malts and lemongrass.

Taste
Extremely light on the palate. Earth, dried hay and raw grains. Hints of lemongrass and potpourri. Some coriander spice in the finish along with a speckle of orange zest.

Mouthfeel
Light bodied, crisp, clean and dry.

Overall
Slight tartness in the front with a snap of spice on the back. Obviously at 2.9% it’s very easy drinking but lacking in flavor. Great Saison yeast flavors though.

Thanks to yankeefan287 for sharing this one. Served from the 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Fairly hazy light orange golden colored body with a big, fluffy and creamy white head. Nice retention cap along with decent amounts of splotchy lacing.

S: Quite muted but some of the saison-esque spices come through. Pale malts, bread, spicy yeast and that's really about it. No detectable hoppiness.

T: A bit more of a hop presence in the taste which is nice, opening things up. Spices are back along with some bready notes and just a hint of a Belgian yeast flavor. Not overly complex or flavorful but nice.

M: Well carbonated, certainly a light-bodied beer that drinks extremely easily. Refreshing, crisp and clean without anything off in the linger.

This was an all around nice beer to try. I love the lower ABV on this one and the fact that it did have just enough flavor to warrant the low ABV was nice. Not entirely flavorful and a bit watery, but one to try.

a clean straw-yellow pour with 2 fingers of foamy white head and great lacing. smells very grassy.... lemongrass, coriander, orange peel and bread (yeast). a very mellow tasting saison style ale with a very well balanced variety of spicy, grassy, and bready flavors.
light in body and carbonation, smooth and easy to go down.

this is a great summer ale. it's almost like a hybrid of a wheat beer with a saison. very crisp and refreshing, and very tasty as well.
