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

A: Thin golden straw color, a slight haze, and a thin white head that dissolves away quickly

S: Pilsner malt, biscuit, Belgian yeast, a little astringent, grassy hay and straw

T: Pilsner biscuity malt, subtle tart yeast funk, very light peppery hop bitterness, no long lingering flavors, and not overly dry

M: Light feel and prickly carbonation, very clean finish and refreshing

O: Overall a nice simple saison. No real fruit flavors or over the top yeast funk. With a reasonable ABV and flavor, this is very drinkable. If it were more available to me it would be a great canned beer for a hot day.

Poured from the can into a tulip glass.

Gorgeous looking beer here. Opaque, and somewhere between clarity, and a glowing unique color. Green brassed yellow, a good solid column of middle carbonation, and a soapy to fluffy like bleach white head that grows at a nice three fingers tall. Clumps with a slow fall. This body color is really unique, can't say I've seen a saison with this color or character clarity ever in my life, really love it.

Nice saison nose, with a soft sense of malt chewy notes, and mild and toned down sense of dryness and brett quality. More sucrose and candi forward. Light breaded white toast a bit, but hints at more simple Belgian solid pale ale goodness.

The palate brings much interesting and different flavors. Nice wonderful controlled pepper and lighter bodied fruit quality. Apricots and pepper with real building black pepper finish. Quenching fruit punched body, with a nice light juiced feel, minimal carbonation that is not distracting.

Overall a very fun easy drinking saison that hints towards more lighter simpler pale ale Belgian character, with just a touch of good dried spice. Very memorable, and a good saison starter for those in the new as well.

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

Appearance: Nice straw yellow color, good white head, leaves good lacing

Smell: Nice spicy yeast, cloves, citrus

Taste: Again, a refreshing spice character to it, with some citrus and some fruit

Mouthfeel: Light body, good carbonation, very refreshing

Overall: Paired with a mildly spicy burger, which it went with fantastically. Though it might deviate from style, its nice to see a lower ABV saison. Saison is one of my favorite styles, and this does not disappoint
