Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle. Shared with my wife.

Pours a very nice pale golden color. There is a nice thine white head that is about a quarter of an inch tall. It is medium dense and recedes pretty quickly down to a thin film.

Slight notes of tartness mixed in with some nice wheaty notes. Subtle and yummy mild lemon notes and some nice grainy bread notes and sweetness. It is very clean with some nice slight fruity sweetness in the nose. There are some nice woody barrel notes in the nose with some barnyard funk and mild sweet yeasty esters.

Flavor starts off with a very nice mild lemony tartness mixed in with some good woody funk. Nice notes of mild hay and musty wood. There are nice vinous and white wine notes of mild sugary sweetness. Bready notes of grain are present and intermingled with some slight fruit juice sweetness, nice funk and good vinous tartness. Body is light and refreshing.

Overall this is a very nice saison. Seems to have more traditional notes and some good woody funk. Nice job!

Hazy yellow golden colored. A half inch thick off white head with vibrant carbonation bubbles within the beer. Brussels lacing. Aromas of pineapple, mango and a bit of funk waft out of my glass. The taste of peppery saison yeast is on the front of the palate. It is followed quickly by a gentle touch of the earthy rye. The rye lingers in the aftertaste along with the pineapple and mango notes. The carbonation on this beer is moderate and the mouth is pretty crisp and dry.
