Pours an effervescent straw color with a thumb of fast-falling pearl colored head. Stays effervescent throughout, traces of lacing & average head retention
S: Bready, grainy, pears & white grape
T: Bready, grassy, white pepper, lemon & just a touch of apricot & apple skin up front. Hints of pineapple & white grapes sneak in as this warms, pears , light lemon zest, plus white pepper & lemongrass. Finishes slightly fruitty, with white pepper, faint apple peel & with lemon grass
MF: Light bodied, lively carbonation, good balance
Easy drinker, this will be a go to beer as long as I can find it. Fairly subtle, but flavorful enough to make want another. Would love to try this on draft to get a comparison. I could tear up some sushi, Thai or Indian food with this!

Acquired via trade
Murky, hazy golden straw color. Quickly forming head of white bubbles, but not a persistent one. Spots and smears of stick left down the glass.
As the name of the beer implies, this has a very standard, very straightforward saison aroma--which I like very much. Grain, sweetness, dry hay and grass, earthy notes, and some cracker and cereal. Some initial Band-Aid at cooler temperatures.
The flavor is similar to the aroma: sweet grain, hay and grass, mild pepper and lemon notes, moderate bitterness. Incredibly drinkable.
Medium to fuller in body for the style with moderate carbonation. I suppose I wish the body was a bit more lively.
Very nice, traditional saison.

A - Golden Color. light carbonated head. little tiny bubbles. 2 full inches of head that dissipates quickly. but never fully. a single stream of tiny tiny bubbles come up from the bottom.
S - light citrus. orange, grapefruit.
T - high carbonation. tiny bit of hops. orange and grapefruit. not bitter what so ever.
M - carbonation hits with a small punch. get a tingle on the tongue. Little bit slippery on the tongue.
O - This is really nice. low ABVs make this real drinkable. real light on the tongue. altho the high carbonation makes this bubble in the tummy. so can't have too many. It could be a bit thicker. that being said - i would buy this again.
