Cloudy, light brown colored body with a fantastic, white head that remains thick for quite some time. Decent amount of carbonation.
The aroma has a nice funk that is ripe with earthy spices and a distinct Belgian character, yeast I believe. Clove and ground pepper with plenty of sweet citrus notes and subtle hints of banana.
Doesn't quite live up to the aroma.. Bitterness hits upfront and ride this one all the way through and unfortunately it isn't very pleasant. Through the bitterness, you can detect dull orange peel which provides some much needed tart and sweet notes. Funky aftertaste that lingers.
Medium body. Carbonation is good but fades fast if not consumed quickly. Semi-dry finish.
Not a bad for the style as it does check most of the right boxes. That said, it's just not enjoyable once move forth from the aroma. If more character could break through the bitterness, this could be a stellar entry.

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.
