3.49/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, citrus zest, yeast, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with strong citrus zest and spice flavors on the finish. There is a high amount of spice bitterness that lingers on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but the smell is much better than the taste in my opinion.

4.21/5  rDev +18.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy white head that leaves a ring of lacing.

Smells of lemony citrus and some floral notes.

Tastes of the lemon with some grainy malts and a bit of hops. Lemon zest notes lead off before some floral hops come through. Grainy malts come next with a bit of sweetness. A touch of pepper and funk add towards the end before one last kick of citrus finishes it.

Moithfeel is medium-light with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a tasty saison and gets a bit of a bonus for keeping the alcohol down.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. 6/21

Pours very pale gold, a little hazy, 1/4 inch white head. Peppery spicy belgian yeast nose. Tart, citrus taste with a peppery hop. Spicy. Buzzes in the mouth during and after. Lively saison. Snaps to a close.
