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

poured from 12oz bottle into standard pint glass. No legible bottled date, just some fuzzy code.

Poured very nicely, cloudy yellow body with good thick white head, which retained well, but left little in the way of lacing.

Smell was delicate, but some earthy tones with a hint of fruit. Otherwise, not to much going on. (Though my nose might be a bit off when it comes to muted aromas)

Taste was clean and refreshing, not much in the way of fruit, earthier, with a very nice ever so slightly sour finish.

Decent mouth, not too thick at all.

Overall, this saison goes down nice and easy on a summers day. A nice change of pace from the hop and stout assault I usually give my mouth. Can see having this again.
