3.91/5 rDev -0.8%
Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, spice, yeast, funk, and fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly tart grain, yeast, spice, and citrus and tropical fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
Serving type: bottle.

4/5 rDev +1.5%
Hazy and glowing gold. Great frothy head and retention.
Lemony smell with sine clove and funk. Grassy hops.
A nice combo of funk, peppery spice and citrus flavors of lemon and orange. Lightly phenolic with some overripe banana.
Good carbonation, medium body. Clean mouthfeel.
A very good saison that's true to style. Refreshing on a hot summer day.

Personal notes: After trying "Fierce" by Off Color today, and going back and forth between a 3.75 and 4 I look back on "Apex Predator," a beer I need to revisit but have a endearing memory of, as rating a 3.75 and it just seems that the rating for this beer should not be the lower of the two and so I'm bumping this up to a 4. i shall revisit this one and update then. For some reason when I rate out of five I seem to end up rating lower. 4/5 just seems better than 80 out of 100 or 8 out of 10...but i digress.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip,
Appearance: Pours a hazy bright gold. Carbonation is heavy. Nice 1.5-finger white head that hangs around a bit. Slightly more than minimal lacing.
Aroma: Smells of spices, lemon, some citrus, zest, and some dry hops.
Taste: Really nice dry flavor with some spices and lemon mixed in. Very appealing saison. Little more alcoholic kick than some of its peers.
Mouthfeel: Just right for a saison. Well balanced.
Overall: I don't know much about this brewery or Midwestern craft beer in general, but this beer is a real hit. I like the funky bottle design, too. Will recommend to saison fans.
