look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Delightful deep golden straw color. Nice effervescence, pours with a rich dense creamy head that lingers nicely. Although lacing is minimal to non existence.
May benefit from an addition of carapills/carafoam.

Aroma: Pleasant spicy aroma that hits the pallet immediately after pouring. Lovely noble hop character reminiscent of Hersbruker or possibly Saaz. Smells of fresh grass, lemon, spice and fresh baked bread.

Taste: Balanced between yeasty spiciness, noble hop bitterness, malty/bread like character and just a bit tart, but all in equal parts.

Mouthfeel: Slightly tart with a full pilsner malt body and noble hop bitterness.

Overall: Beautifully brewed example of a classic style reminiscent of Saison Dupont.
Well done Blackberry Farm Brewer!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a very hazy to cloudy medium straw yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation and some brighter golden yellow highlights. The beer has a two to three finger tall dense foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a medium sized thin to medium thick cap surrounded by a very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to heavy amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Upfront there are moderate aromas of pale malts with moderate to significant amounts of spicy yeast. Additionally there are some hints of black pepper along with light lemon citrus and some almost banana-like notes. There are some light earthy and floral hops aromas towards the finish.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of pale malts with moderate to strong amounts of yeastiness including some spicy black pepper and clove notes. There is a light to moderate amount of lemon citrus in the middle and some hints of banana in the background. Light amounts of earthy and floral hops towards the finish give this beer a light amount of bitterness which does not linger for too long.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Effervescent with light to moderate amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: This is a nice offering from a newer brewery and I was glad to have the option to try it - nice amounts of complexity and a slight twist on the usual flavors/aromas of a saison. I would recommend this is it will pair nicely with many different foods. Refreshing.
