Served on pint in a tulip glass
Appearance – The beer is served a light golden yellow color with one finger of foamy white head. The head fades slowly over time leaving a wonderful level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer Is mainly of a citrus lemon and light bready smell mixed with aromas of yeast and a bit of spice of clove and coriander. Along with these aromas are some smells of hay and a bit of a grassy smell mixing with a little bit of a pear and apple sweetness to round out the aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a light biscuit flavor mixed with some flavors of lemon citrus upfront. As the flavor advances, some light yeast tastes greet the tongue. The yeast brings some spice along with it, bringing to the tongue some flavors of clove and coriander. The taste takes on some wheat and light fruit flavors along with a light grassy and earthy flavor at the end of the taste to leave a rather light and crisp flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is very light and thin with a carbonation level that is slightly above average. The body is actually a little too thin for the brew even at its low abv., never really allowing any of the flavors time to linger on the tongue.
Overall – While it was quite light and rather crisp it was a little weak in flavor and a little too watery for a saison for my taste. Just OK.

A-golden with a thin white head
S-buttery corn and some tartness and Belgian grains. Strong scent.
T-comes in how it smells except with more of a grassy aspect. It's pretty good actually. The smell was fake, but this has more genuity to it. It's not as strong as the scent though, more mellow. Matching after-taste.
M-heavy dry carbonation, dry finish
O-easy drinking saison. Fairly mellow though, which I guess is expected from the abv. I'm not a fan of the corn flavor it has.

The beer is a golden straw yellow with light foamy white head. Nice webbed lacing and slightly hazy. Beer smells faintly spiced with clove and grains of paradise. A bready scent mixes in with some dank yeast.
Upon sipping the spices are far more evident and a little overpowering in my opinion. Too much grains of paradise. The interesting yeast scent doesn't appear much once sipping, which would have been more interesting. Mouthfeel is light, very drinkable and carbonation comes off being fizzy.
Nt my favorite from a brewery I often enjoy. Reminiscent of Sam Adam's summer ale.

A clear, glowing clear straw yellow with a dense, white head with excellent retention and nice lacing, this is a great saison. The nose is bright, light and refreshing. Citrus, pear esters, a little apple, some ginger and a faint note of yeast and phenols are present. The palate is bone dry and with a clean, pils malt base with crackers, a pleasant blend of citrus, light fruit and a touch of yeast. While it is lacking the phenols and yeast character that defines the style, this is enjoyable. Light in body with a crisp, zippy carbonation, this is quite excellent.

Clear golden straw with a frothy white head that lingers. Effervescent bubbles surface constantly.
Confectioners sugar sweetness, wet hay, white pepper, and what form the initial aroma, with hints of pear adding complexity.
Fairly dry throughout, with pear and apple esters at the base, on a bed of grainy malt. The finish is peppery and a touch bready. Lacks a bit in substance. Minerally qualities surface late.
Body is fairly light, with high carbonation and a slightly tannic finish.
A bit weak in character. Has the dryness and spiciness of a saison, but it's missing the intangibles.

3.6/5 rDev -0.6%
12oz bottle poured into a GF 16oz Belgian Tulip
A - Pale yellow and very clear. Three finger rocky white head, that leaves a wall of lacing.
S - Subdued, hay and light spice, very little to no fruity esters.
T - Light pepper with a back-background of grassy hoppy. Very slight malt sweetness. No alcohol present.
M - One of the lightest ever, huge level of carbonation. Dissipating finish
O - Kind of like a Saison Junior, it hits all the notes it's supposed to, but they're pop flys to the infield.
