The beer pours a cloudy, monochromatic caramel color with a wickedly fluffy white head that grabs desperately for the glass throughout drinking. The nose is ripe and citrusy, with more lemon than oranges, and notes of white grape, but this is definitely not syrupy sweet as it has a certain mouthwatering tartness in the nose that I've rarely experienced. The taste is equally bright and citrusy with heavy handed hay and grains, a honey-like sweetness, zesty citrus, and yeast in the finish. The mouthfeel is light bodied and well attenuated, effervescent, promoting grain and citrus in the middle, but has a semi-dry, lingering yeastiness that makes for a pleasant aftertaste. This beer is seriously classy as hell and absolutely meets my expectations for the style.

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.
