look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

(on tap at Cedar Point Bar & Kitchen - served in a goblet, a la Stella Artois)

A: gold liquid, relatively clear... tight, white, cottony foam - lotta foam at first, little retention, little lace

S: moderately-intense floral hoppy-phenolic notes... perfumy cloth.... light-toasty grain, dry hay

T: mild bubblegum, white grape... spicy bitterness... lingering herbal, peppery aftertaste - grapefruit zest and lightly-sweetened granola as well... overall, moderately fruity but very dry

M: tiny bit of grainy body up front... very crisp and clean, perhaps a bit watery in the finish... bit of a citrus-acid residue left on the palate

O: refined, quite easy to drink... very much a Saison in its flavor characteristics... they did manage to pack a lot of flavor into this beer, though maybe nothing unique (had some strong similarities to Dupont) - but it's hard to knock it... something to keep in the cooler at a bbq
