Poured a golden orange body with minimal head and minor lace patches.
Slight bit of funk in the aroma as yeast and sour citric notes come out
Light and crisp, there is a bit of funky dryness to this beer and then some balance comes from a bit of juicy fruit sweetness.
Yeast helps keep it smooth and I get some spices and citric notes.
Not a bad saison but just didn't seem to pull everything together as everything seemed faint.

A nice, easy-drinking saison. Grassy herbal hops with refreshing lemongrass. Quite dry and fizzy. Just a touch of citrus tang.

A: This poured a cloudy light straw color with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like lemongrass and waxy hops, with some spicy Belgian yeast and earthy grass.
T: It tasted like strong herbal malts and waxy hops, with some lemongrass and peppercorn and anise. It had a clean waxy aftertaste.
M: It was oily with lots of smooth natural carbonation. Nice slick body.
D: This was an interesting saison, with unique scent and taste. I wasn't a fan of the peppercorn and anise. The body was solid, but the finish was unpleasant, so this wasn't very easy for me to drink. Others may enjoy this, as I suspect it is a quality brew that meets the brewer's intent. But it's simply not for me.
