2.35/5  rDev -31.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Pours a clear gold with a slight head
Smells sweet - nothing overwhelming, just a subtle sweet touch
Has a little bite, but very bland. More lemon than pepper
Mouthfeel is - eh, OK. No pop from any pepper or much else. Just kind of there
Overall, I think I might have expected too much? Just thought it would be complex, with pepper and lemon, but the lemon overruled the pepper to make what was basically a simple, basic summer beer

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 650ml bottle into a pint glass
A: Light orange with a 1/2-finger head
S: Sweet, some spice, some light wheat notes
T: Lots of spice initially followed by some florals/potpourri, not a lot in the way of malty/hoppy characteristics
M: Light-bodied, a fair amount of carbonation
O: Meh. Not what I'd call a saison but not sure what style it would be... a unique/interesting beer but not one I'd buy again

Had a 25 oz of this On-Tap in Louisville.

Made great for the large quantity. I drank it rather quickly.

The small head faded quickly.

Some spicyness. Dry, but not as much as the other saison's I've had. Very pleasant.

I would say this does not have all the characteristics of a saison, but then again I haven't had too many. Could have used a touch more carbonation.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is hazy light amber orange in color. It poured with a thin off white head that died down a bit, leaving a thin film covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of lemongrass are present in the nose along with some notes of blue agave nectar.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but isn't quite as strong. Faint hints of peppery spices are noticeable in the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The mixture of lemongrass and blue agave nectar provides for a very interesting smell.
