Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael!

The beer is straw yellow and hazy with a bone white head. The aroma brings hay, grass, floral notes, lemon. Great flavor. Smooth on the palate with herbal notes, lemon. The finish is gentle, with minimal tartness. Sunshine in a glass. Tasty.

Bottle into Sante Adairius belgian snifter.

Appearance is super hazy grapefruit peel yellow with a lovely, compact white head that leaves a great layer of foam after residing. Rocky on the edges with tons of sticky lacing.

Aroma is of orchard fruits, sticky flowers, and soft spices. Juicy orange, mandarin, peach, and a little apricot. Grassy in a floral kind of way, hay or rustic grass. Some grains of paradise, white pepper, and faint banana also very much present.

The taste reveals one of the juiciest Saisons out there. Loads of orange juice, lemon zest, tart apple, acidic pear, sharo pineapple, white grape, and I could keep going... All that juicy fruit character is properly balanced by some grassy notes, soft spice, and brett yeast leather essence. Amazing almost falls short as a describer.

Mouthfeel is almost perfect with its light body, medium range fluffy carbonation, and sublime level of acidity. I mean this hits the mark on the acidity level, much like a few Hill Farmsteads. Where a lot of Saisons lack in pucker and others take it a bit far this is just where it's supposed to be.

One of the best no doubt. Where other truly amazing Saisons fall short, this seems to hit the mark. While I've enjoyed many Hill Farmstead, Side Project, Prairie, Logsdon, Tired Hands, etc. etc. saisons, this one stands out among most of them and up there with one or two others as the best there is.
