Birra caused me to say to myself, "I think I could get into saisons."

Appearance - The beer was a nice cloudy color with a foamy white head. Lacing hugged the sides of the tulip glass.

Smell - The aroma has that musty smell that reminds me of basements in the Midwest. It was Earthy and lemony.

Taste - At the front, I get gritty lemon, something akin to mineral water, and hops. There is a sourness that does not overwhelm, and is actually quite pleasant. The finish is dry and sour, almost to a point that makes you instantaneously makes you want to drink more.

Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel clings to the tongue and the sides of the mouth allows the tart to sting the sides of the tongue. The carbonation sweeps much to the tart away, but some still lingers.

Overall - I am not big on the style, but I like this one.

This Saison is a hazy light-medium yellow. I have to let the sediment settle and pour the rest of the yeast in, which of course makes it a bit cloudier. The head is a bubbly white one that might obtain half a finger but fades quickly. It does keep a ring and drop some spotting behind.
The smell is nice: dusty, slightly funky, a little dry, very mildly sweet, with a bit of lemon. There's a bit of bread and cracker in the malts, very slight spiciness, and a hint of herb.
The taste is pretty much the same, dryness and herbal notes becoming stronger along with the lemony zest. It collects a bit of a pithy brine from the middle into the finish with a hint of a seltzer taste as well.
The feel is good, maybe not as dry and soft as I'd like in a Saison but with a firm crispness and pretty smooth in a light-medium body.
