Straight up the best Saison on the West Coast. Fantastic recipe. Super clear and super clear finish. Corn helps with that possibly? Nice balance while maintaining the Belgian yeast flavor profile.
I have offered this to Corona swilling lady friends who agree this is fantastic. That's a tough bridge to cross. Believe it.
"Only" scored 4.5 because I think I can homebrew a better copy!

Awesome beer for year around.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

a: hazy golden yellow with a frothy white 2 finger head

s: belgian yeast. coriander, pepper, clove. caramel wheat, cardboard, lemon & orange zest. lemongrass

t: coriander, bubblegum, spicy yeast, pepper, caramel malt. there is sweet citrus (orange, apricot) that follows the initial spicy yeast. finishes with a clean graininess

m: fuller side of light, with a pretty nice amount of carbonation

o: this is much better than i expected. it has a nice combination of spice from the yeast, spice from what i think is coriander, and is balanced out by the sweet citrus and grains. very refreshing, and full of nice flavors

Thanks, Abraham.

Pouring a straw yellow with a huge, white head with excellent retention and nice lacing, this looks great. The nose is fantastic. Dry and crackery with a dusty undertone before the fruity yeast and lemony hops come through, this is incredibly refreshing. Snappy and earthy, this succeeds where so many saisons don't. Dust complements the lemon which then segues into a zesty resin character and ends up with moderate spice notes of pepper, a touch of clove and some fruit. Excellent.

The palate opens bright, snappy, earthy and refreshing, crisp and crackery. Mildly fruity, mildly doughy, moderately dusty, mildly lemony, this is an exercise in structure and restraint. Rustic and refreshing, this beer finishes dry, earthy , mildly peppery and with a pleasing hop flavor and resin character. Light in body and highly carbonated, this is excellent stuff.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Poured with an unfiltered haze and a thick fluffy peak of foam.
Perfect beer for spring weather.
S: bready malts, grassy, grape and apple skin
T: lots of fruity yeast character up front. The soft sweet malt character comes through and is very light and lively. A little herbal presence from the hops but not much.
M: crisp mouthfeel from the light body and ample carbonation.
O: the perfect spring weather beer. Light enough warm days but flavorful enough for the cooler evenings.
