Nose: fruit, a little light sour funk, spice, saison nose.
Pours hazy gold, 2” very finely bubbled foam cap, descends to a thick ½” moussey foam cap that persists.
Starts creamy, fruit, funk, saison, hop finish, very fine carbonation, very light for the amount of flavor packed into the glass, lemony, very airy and moussey, herbal, spice – sage?
The texture is outrageously good. Medium to medium light body, effervescent, very nicely done.

Pours a hazy orange with decent sized white head. Nice lacing.

Pear and apple in the aroma. A hint of clove and pepper. Extremely aromatic. Citrus fruits and grassy spicy hops. Orange marmelade. Spicy alcohol.

Very spicy and almost tangy on the palette. Where the aroma was quite sweet and fruity, the flavor is much more dry and spicy. Citrus fruits come back in the background along with cracker-like pilsner malt. Honey on the finish. Spicy hops add a firm bitterness.

Heavily carbonated which adds to the dry and tangy character. Flaked wheat seems to add softness to the palette.

Complex, balanced, and drinkable. This is definitely a contender for one of the best American made saisons I've had.
