This is a great beer to have on a warm summer day.
A hazy yellow color, it has a small white head that left a bit of lace.
Nice aroma of grapefruit and lemon. Some sweet malt, a little bit of spice.
Not quite as tasty as I expected from the aroma. Lemon and grapefruit, but muted. Bready.
Some peppery spice late.
A very drinkable beer. I would have liked a little more out of the taste.

750 mL bottle purchased at the original location. Served at 50F in a HF wine glass.
A: Sightly hazy golden-orange body with a creamy whit 1.5" ead thst folds on for 2-3 minutes leaving thick lacing in the glass. Medium swirlinh revives the head. Medium size bubbles in the carbonation.
S: Stong scent of lemon and citrus over an earthy/bready base. No hop presence and malts are jst above background levels. Hints pf pepper and lactic acidity.
T: Citrusy lemon balanced against the sweetness and bitterness of grapefruit. That sounds counterintuitive, but it's a fresh, bright grapefruit flavor...alomst fresh squeezed. Hints of barnyard and classic earthy saison round out the flavor. Lingering touches of grapefruit nd a slight residual (non hop) bitterness associated with citrus peel. I like that, but some may not. Finishes dry.
M: Light bodied, this is a great summer beer for beach, post lawn-cutting or just sipping all aftenon with good friends. Medium carbonation (slightly low with respect to Belgian styles). Not cloying or slick, this beer leaves you wanting more.
O: A nice Amercan twist on a classc Belgian style. NS has done very well with their fruited beers and this is not exception. I'm told this will be a year round offering. Es, please.

The beer pours a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly and leaves some lacing afterwards. The beer itself is a very clear gold color with some brown notes. The smell has a nice tart smell to it. The grapefruit smell and lemons have a strong presence that clash with the saison peppery and earthy hop smell. The taste is somewhat similar to the smell but with a much stronger lemon adn grapefruit taste. The bitter hops and earthy tones come out later in the taste towards the end. The mouthfeel is very smooth with biting carbonation. Medium bodied but on the lighter side. Overall, a decent beer and worth getting.
