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.

Cold from the tap a couple days after Green Flash hit Indianapolis. Poured a murky, dirty gold to the rim of a 10oz goblet with no head whatsoever.

Super subtle spicy, lemon rind and yeast.

Medium bodied, low-ish carbonation, spicy, tart dry finish.

Super drinkable.

Poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a cloudy pale yellow color with about an inch of white head that quickly dissipated and left light to moderate lacing. There were a fair amount of floaties when I got to the bottom of the bottle.

The aroma featured a big, bright yeasty spice scent, and was supported by nice solid grains. The flavor profile was pretty similar, yeast and spice over a nicely solid grain base.

The body, while very pleasant, was a pretty typical medium, and had a very dry finish. Drinkability was good, I could put this into my Saison rotation. Overall, not a ground breaking example of the style, but still a good, solid one. Worth trying if you see it.
