look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 375 mL bottle into a stemmed glass. This was bottled 08/19/14 so is pretty fresh.

Appearance: Pours a hazy lemon-yellow/translucent light amber and gives a fluffy head of a couple fingers which fades slowly to a white layer atop the beer, leaving lacing. (4.5)

Smell: Nice funky lemons, grapes, green apples, citrus rinds, pepper, oak, a dash of cloves. Nice balanced, refreshing aroma. (4.5)

Taste: Interesting - different than the aroma. Some light lemon/citrus up front, followed by oak, a different type of funk, wheat, citrus rinds, grapes. Really mellowed out taste - very smooth but misses out on some of the best parts of the aroma. Not sour in the taste which is interesting. (4.25)

Mouth-feel: Medium to well carbonated with a medium, creamy body. Super smooth, especially in the finish. (4.5)

Overall: This one really warmed up to me. The aroma was wonderful right up front - but the flavor surprised me but got better and better - just so mild, drinkable and refreshing. A bit of nice funk and plenty of citrus. A delicious summer beer for sure. (4.5)

A - One finger of white, bubbly head. OK lacing. Pale, slightly hazy yellow body.

S - Oak and slight funk. Cooking sherry, tart cherry, and breadiness.

T - Mellow grain. Tart and sweet cherry. Tons of raw oak in the finish with slight grassy hoppiness and funk.

M - Light body. Very dry finish which I'm attributing to the oak.

O - Personally, I would have enjoyed a little more age on this in the hopes of mellowing out the oak, but it's a really interesting saison with a lot of depth of flavor.
