Thanks to Darrell for hipping me to this beer.

The beer is a bit of a gusher, with a formidable white head. The aroma offers citrus, hops, brett, etc, very nice. Flavor follows suit. Light to medium in body and highly drinkinable. Delicious. $4 per bomber?!? Alrighty then. Absolutely worth a try. I look forward to revisiting this one.

A very well carbonated orange color with a rocky white head.

Aroma is of lemons, spices and yeast

Taste is very yeasty, balancing out with a peppery spice, malts, lemon zest. Very good combination of flavor profiles here.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and the carbonation lends to a crisp finish. Drinkability is on the higher side. Finished the huge bottle with little trouble. I don't know if I could have another (its quite a lot). But I still recommend it.

Golden yellow color with a few bits floating about. Massive head of fluffy suds fill the top half of a Duvel Tulip. Lots of lacing.

Very zesty and fresh nose. Lots of fruit, some lemon zest, light earthy funk. Smells quite crisp.

Nice complexity. A nice peppery spice with lemon. Pretty rich light malt, good crisp hop presence. Some warm alcohol is noticeable as well.

Approaches medium bodied, slightly chewy and moderately smooth with some soft, but prickly carbonation.

This is a highly drinkable saison that is really well crafted. A relative bargain of a beer as well. I would have this one again.
