Notes/Commercial Description:
A tribute to the highly drinkable "every day" beers from French-speaking Belgium. Contains Belgian two-row pale malt and 7% wheat. This beer is lightly filtered with an earthy, spicy hop character from imported Styrian Goldings hops and a beautiful rich creamy head from the wheat.

This may be a bit light in the abv department for a Saison, but it has all the Saison elements. Pours a mostly clear gold color with a good size white bubbly head. Some lacing on the glass

Aroma is pretty good, lemon zest, Belgian yeast and a little funk. Taste is fairly mild for a Saison, but has the yeast, lemon and most important, a bit of musty, barnyard type funk.

Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. I could see this as an an every day "go to" summer beer.
