Pours a beautiful hazed lemon yellow with about a fingers worth of white foam that fell quickly. Nose is funky with Belgian yeast and has some bright sweet lemon peel. There's a tiny bit of spice on the nose too. Taste is simple and graceful. Bright lemon, a bit tart, on a sweet light dry cracker. Sparkling carbonation and a touch of pepper as it finishes. This beer is everything a saison should be. Has a very pleasant hop herbal on the nose and a bit of spice in the drink. As you drink you will find a delightful tartness to offer just a slight bit of pucker. Has plenty of juicy lemon on the palate and a crisp off dry finish.

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.
