look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Huge four finger off white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of clingy lacing around the glass.
Smell: A yeast driven Belgian style aroma with hints of fruit and spices. Upfront Belgian yeast with some farmhouse funk, clove, and peppers. Bright and zesty citrus fruit presence with hints of orange, lemon zest, pineapple, and apricot. Sweet bready malt presence with hints of caramel, straw, grains, and cracker. Also some light sweet candied sugar hints. Hops are pretty subtle. Solid aroma.
Taste: Like it smells, a bright and zesty yeast driven taste with citrus and spice notes. Belgian yeast with notes of farmhouse funk, peppers, and clove spicing. Juicy citrus fruit taste with notes of orange peel, lemon zest, pineapple, apricot, and peach. Notes of candied sugar. Sweet bready malt presence with notes of grains, straw, caramel, oats, and cracker. Subtle earthy hops in the background. A nice juicy taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Juicy, spicy, and very smooth.
Overall: A pretty solid take on a Saison. Not as funky as typical for the style but there is a pretty good citrus taste.

P- Thanks to my buddy Matt for this brew!
A- 3 and half finger foamy head that cascades over my pint. A slplotcy lacing on the inside of pint as well. somewhat opaque and looks like jellyfish tentacles reach down the inside from the head. gold wheat color.
S- spicy pepper and lemon zest nose. gum in the back end as well.
F- pepper spice with lemon zest. complement flavors are nicely done. I also get some sweet bubblegum flavor in the mouth more than the nose had. this is quite tasty.
M-yeasty and somewhat heavy in that regards but also goes down easy an smooth.
O- a really good saison and one flavor doesn't dominate the other. It is medium bodied but goes down with ease. well worth a sixer in the summer.
