Pours hazy yellow with a good head that does not last. The skim creates some sticky lace.

Some nice yeasty funk in the nose, some spice and grain, a touch of fruit.

Nice yeast and grain husk up front, some spice notes and a mild tart bite. The beer turns moderately bitter, with a dry grassiness that works well with the malt. Bitter and yeasty in the finish.

Lighter bodied with a good carbonated fizz.

Decent brew here. Needs some more complexity, but solid in all ways overall.

Server in a taster glass at the brewery.

Smells spicy, herbal. Saison yeast for sure. Unsurprisingly, it tastes like a saison too! Very typical. Lightly tart. Vaguely fruity (peaches? Very light). Mouthfeel is light and dry. I like it.

Recommended for people who like saisons.
