A very solid Saison!!!! I was expecting a light,lemon zest heavy, simple beer....maybe with hops because if its West Coast roots. This is a real Saison, maybe not the worlds best, but having all the elements of a good Saison.

Pours a straw gold color with a good sized delicate white head. Head retention is a bit weak and there is minimum lacing. Aroma is good, some lemon zest and a good funky/yeasty presence.

Good solid Saison taste. Spices, musty yeast/funk and lemon zest. Very nicely done!!!

Mouthfeel is rich, spicing and funk are just right.

If I am in the mood for a Saison, this one will do nicely.

Pours golden color with white head in TEKU glass.

Smell is belgian yeast, funk, lemon, coriander.

Taste follows smell. Lemon, spice with a light bitter finish.

Feel is light and refreshing. Nice effervecent carbonation.

Overall this is a nice saison. Worth a try.

A 22oz bomber picked up at Green's on Buford Hwy, Atlanta, GA

A - A bright yellow, straw color. 2 fingers of head, and nice creamy head left on top of the beer. Lots of bubbles rising to the top

S - Musty funky yeast strain is up front and prevalent. Definitely a farmhouse ale. Spices, lemon, orange.

T - Earthy flavors, belgian saison yeast. Light fruits, orange. Spices. Alochol is light. It does not have an ABV on the bottle, but I am guessing it is under 6%

M - Medium bodied, huge carbonation. Crisp

O - A very good rendention of the style. Its good, but not great. I would definitely buy a 4 or 6 pack of it again, but probably overpriced for a bomber.

Pours a hazy golden yellow. A simple head sits on top, off white and lingers for a bit for good rentention though not much lacing.
The aroma is lighter in this saison. It has a pale malt smell with hints of yeast, cloves and spices, all of which are lean and sutle.
In the taste I get some biscuit maltiness, tart lemon juice, pepper, yeast and spices.
It drinks clean dry and crisp on the palate.
A good saison. It's light and very drinkable.
