3.6/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: after gushing out maybe a third of the bottle it poured a golden orange color, with a two plus finger white head that leaves a sticky lacing on the sides. completely hazy and opaque.

Smell: mix of fruity and floral flavors. some apples, some floral and some chamomile.

Taste: opens up with apples and a quick kick of chamomile. backend has floral, yeast and maybe a little bit of a spicey character.

Mouthfeel: light and slightly sweet.

Overall: this is a pretty good beer. but it doesn't quite do it for me. I think for the style it could use more dryness and more yeast character.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Enjoyed on tap at Bier Station. Poured into a small Belgian style tulip glass.

Appearance - Pours a sunny golden body with a hazy disposition that prevents much light from passing through, and therefore creates a flatter depth of color than might otherwise be present. All the same, there are notes of goldenrod and lemon rind, lying in wait beneath a pillowy stark white head of luscious foam. Retention is excellent, and as it starts to fade, it leaves sheets of leopard print lacing along the sides of the glass.

Smell - The initial aroma is an assertive blend of floral overtones and orchard fruit sweetness, bringing to mind notes of nectarine and faint apple. With subsequent smells, the aroma become a bit sweeter, with notes of nectar and honey. There is absolutely no bitterness to speak of, but there are some light grain elements of whole grain crackers.

Taste - Much like the smell, the floral nectar and fruity overtones of the chamomile are hovering over a rustic base including notes of nectarine and white pepper, with some other hard-to-identify spicing elements as well. Perhaps lemongrass and candied apple. Here there is a little bit of bitterness, but nothing very overt--just some faint bite, like light garden greens.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied and a light carbonation that lends a foamy, almost cotton candy like feel to the mouth. Slightly sweet aftertaste.

Overall, a fantastically light and floral saison, using the addition of chamomile to compliment the estery yeast notes from the base beer. If Tank 7 weren't so prevalent in my market, I could easily see this being a go-to for the style.

Serving type: on-tap
