little to no head retention, almost no lacing, cloudly orange like color. Smell is lightly musky, lemon and a wheat likeness. taste is astringent, creamy thou, with orange and wheat, nice mouthfeel for style.

Overall; Good beer for style, though reminda me of blue moon to much only heavier.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip at cellar temperature.

L – Deep gold color with a 3-finger foamy, frothy, rocky, white head. Decent retention and some wisps of lacing. Clear with lots of bubbles.

S – Bready malt, peppery yeast, lemon zest, and a whole host of herbal, grassy, and floral aromas.

T – Follows the aroma well. It starts off mildly sweet with bready, grainy malt and picks up spicy, peppery yeast along the way. Bitter and tart lemon rind comes in next, followed by a bunch of herbal and floral flavors at the finish.

F – Light-medium-bodied, good carbonation, a crisp and very mildly tart feel, and a mildly bitter, mildly spicy, and dry finish. A little bit of burn at the finish from the alcohol.

O – This is a pretty good beer. It certainly has all of the elements of a good saison, but the herbal and floral aspects are a bit overdone for my taste. The ABV is also a bit higher than I’d like in a saison – I prefer them to be very drinkable and sessionable. So, while this may be a great saison for some, something about it just doesn’t cut it for me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a pretty good beer and a good saison, but I’ve definitely had better.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Cloudy and amber in color with an off white head about an inch thick.

Aroma: Apple, pear, yeasty, lemon, apricot, herbal, peppery, light dryness in the nose. Banana, clove, plastic, coriander.

Taste: Lemon, very peppery, banana, herbal, apple. white grape, clove and a light crisp mouthfeel that finishes nice and dry.

Notes: Very true to form the dryness is great and aside it being seven percent it's quite drinkable I would like to pick this one up again. Cheers.

Glowing gold topped with a milky white head. Big floral and peppery citrus aroma...earthy hay, herbs, grain, lemon, soap, dried banana, and apricot. Cracked pepper and sweet grain flavors transitioning to citrus oils, grass, and earthy leafiness. Rustic, yeasty, and spicy. There's a solid creaminess on the palate, low carbonation, and a crisp finish. I only wish a little more maltiness came through in the flavor, but otherwise this is really nice. Quenching and highly drinkable, though the peppery yeast may be too much after a couple glasses.

Poured into a standard pint glass, color is straw, slightly opaque, head presented about 1 inch thick then dissipated to a ring and some lacing.

Smell light fresh malt, pilsner or clean malt, maybe some light toast or biscuit; pepperiness and yeasty notes as well.

Taste is heavy on the yeast and estery or phenolic flavors, malt sweetness is present but behind the strength of the yeast off flavors.

Mouthfeel is somewhat dry, but not out of place for saisons, some lingering sweetness as well to counter balance, decent.

Overall, a solid saison, malt flavors are present, yeast cleans through and mouthfeel is nice, crisp and slightly dry.

Poured from tap into snifter at tap and mallet Rochester ny. Nice golden orange color with thin white lacing. Looks nice but wish there was a bit bigger head. Great peppery citrus aromas ...typical saison aroma notes. Taste is really nice juicy citrus with a bit of hops and great grassy peppery finish. Really smooth and pleasant. This is a great saison...a bit untraditional but staying close to the style.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Light gold, hazy body, white head, moderate retention. Clear and soapy lacing. Aroma includes lemon zest, banana and clove. Taste follows suit and has a nice bitter finish, a dash of grapefruit if you will. Tongue coating and refreshing.
