Served in a Bruery snifter.
Hey, I've been to that intersection! *massive cartoon-y thumbs-up!* This stuff pours a hazy golden topped by a bit over a finger of white foam. The nose comprises lemon zest, cracked wheat, light coriander, sweet flowers, and a light blanket of mild Belgian yeast. The taste ramps up the yeast-borne spice and mild funk, whilst still maintaining the components of the aroma. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, a nice hoppy saison, one whose hoppiness and yeastiness aren't in competition, but rather in cooperation. Right on.

Poured into a Pipeworks snifter from bomber - batch 46
A - One of the creamiest this lustrous heads I've ever poured, lots of residual lacing. Hazy pale yellow in color.
S - yeast and bananas with some fruit, dark fruits as the beer warms.
T - Citrus, spices, banana, yeast, and hop bitterness
M - medium bodied, lightly carbonated
O - a really fine offering, plenty of complexity in flavor, not a style I purchase typically, but this was enjoyable enough that I would recommend it to anyone whether they enjoy saisons or not.

22 oz. bottle served in a FFF teku glass. Batch #46
A: Pours a clear amber color with a bubbly white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a foamy ring that leaves sticky splotches of lace down the glass.
S: A nice citric hop note is present up front with a spicy Belgian yeast body. Peppery with some fruity esters, the yeast is
T: Slightly bitter and piney, the dry hopping adds another layer of flavor that compliments the dry and yeasty body. Nice fruity esters and a light peppery spice make up the majority of the body of the beer. There is a subtle, underlying sweetness on the finish.
M: Medium high carbonation with a little prickly mouthfeel. Medium-light body with a smooth finish.
O: A definitely liked the extra bitterness and light citrus aromas the dry hopping added to this beer. A unique take on the saison style and it's easily drinkable as well.
