4.19/5  rDev +14.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Medium clarity golden body. Rocky, 3-finger head in an NB Globe glass.

Aroma/Flavor: Lemongrass and anise definitely come through on the aroma and palate. Peppercorn waits to make an appearance on the finish. Belgian yeast leaves the slightest hint of fruity-ness as well. All flavors are very in check and balanced.

Mouthfeel: Effervescent carbonation, light bodied, mostly dry, and refreshing.

Flavor levels and mouthfeel are tell ale signs of a great saison, and Hardywood nailed this one.
