A cloudy orange in color with 3 fingers of foamy white head, slow dissipation and nice amount of lacing. Aroma of lemons, orange, candy, very fruity! The flavor profile is sweet and subtle fruit notes (strawberry) with a very yummy bready character.
Medium in body with high carbonation gives it a very light feel.
This is a very enjoyable saison and honestly perfect for a night like tonight where it's been in the 50's and its 70 outside!

Poured into a 3 Monts tulip. Pours a burnished golden amber with a three finger white head that dissipated slowly leaving heavy lacing. Spicy aroma of apple and light stone fruit, coriander, Belgian yeast, slightl mineral. Flavor is subdued light fruit (apple and peach), light citrus, hints of wild yeast, semi-dry with faint sweetness in the start, finishing with an herbal bitterness and rather dry. Light bodied with peppery active carbonation. The flavor is quite understated and is somewhat overbalanced by the the herbal bitterness in the middle and end. The very light flavors are pleasant and appropriate for a light farmhouse ale, but leave me wishing for some more robust flavoring. A quiet and perhaps too subdued saison. Glad I tried it, but do not need to seek it out again.

22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Acquired this bottle from the local Binny's. I've never had any beers before from Westbrook or Local Option. No idea what to expect here.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours three big fluffy fingers of off-white head on top of a hazed lemon body with an orange tint to it. Looks pretty nice.

S - Smells "carbonated", just like the bottle says, a bit of dusty yeast, lemon zest, some pineapple, and some faint spice rack notes in the background. A fairly subdued aroma, but it hits it's mark.

T - Taste doesn't really hit it for me as much as I thought it would, based on the smell. The lemon zest / pineapple doesn't carry through in the taste as much as I'd like, and there is a pervasive bitterness on the finish that I don't particularly care for. At least it doesn't taste like plastic gloves or latex. I'll give it points for the effort.

M - Goes down quick and clean, and finishes bitter and dry on the palate.

Overall, not a particularly great saison. More full bodied than I had expected, and not really refreshing or sessionable even at 5.50% abv. Definitely not as good as I was hoping for, but I appreciate the effort. Worth trying once, if you are a fan of saisons.

Pours golden in color with a 1 finger white head and decent retention. Slightly hazy.

Nose has a green apple character to it that is followed by clove notes over a backbone of straw malt. Yeast has some interesting characteristics to it.

Some of the green apple tartness comes through in the taste with some big yeasty spice. Some tannin is also present, maybe a little to much.

Mouthfeel is very dry due to the tannin. Other then that it is light and refreshing with moderate carbonation.
