Pours a gorgeous hazy sunny golden color with a huge fluffy white head. It's stunning.

The aroma is lightly bready with black pepper, yeast, earth, spices, mild hay aroma, with hints of herbs. And lemon peel.

Predominantly, it's a musky yeast note, with some pepper, light spices, some light sweet bread crust, earthy, and lightly sweet.

Upper light in body, with a good bit of carbonation lending a crisp feel, and a slight drying finish.

I personally prefer a lighter, crisper, refreshing Saison and this is a nice one!

Just a slight haze on the golden brew and a thin white foam in the tall Pilsner glass. Dry and tangy with a flattish mouth feel. Sharp mineral taste with a dry and almost metallic finish. Leaves a bitter aftertaste. Some lemon and yeast. Modest nose of pear. More mineral water and persistent bitterness. Refreshing but austere. On tap at Epic on the Embarcadero.

Bomber poured into my Gulden Draak tulip, HenHouse Saison is a hazy pale yellow with very tight, fine head leaving sticky, foamy lace. Long last.

Smell is yeasty as well as fruity esters, a little earthy.

Taste is also more yeasty than estery, with a firm peppery spiciness. A little sweetness, firm bitterness. Robustly herbal hops.

Mouthfeel is very creamy, but light. Sharp dryness from the spice.

Drinkability is pretty good, it's an fairly complex saison, and the modest ABV lets you indulge. But the bitterness of the heavy spices is tiring.
