one of the lighter saisons, a stark contrast to the strong golden belgian they make. its so light in all facets as to be a perfect summer refreshing. its got a really pale almost watered down yellow look to it, some hazy, and a solid head. the nose is faintly saison yeast, but its really subtle. smells more like champagne yeast than saison, which is fine in such a light beer. the grain profile is probably more pils than wheat, and contributes very little to the taste of the brew overall. there is a fine summery hop complexion on the back end too before the beer gets all dry. its clean finishing for the style and basic enough to appealing to a wide range of audiences. i much preferred it to the other henhouse beer i had, and appreciate its gentle nature. good for hot weather pounding.

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!
