Poured into a pilsner glass.

A- Pours a straw golden color. A little bit hazy, and pours a nice and thick 2 finger head. Some lacing and a good deal of carbonation. Looks nice. (3.7)

S- Earthy yeast and fruit aromas. Maybe a slight hint of spice. Not terribly complex but nonetheless decent. (3.35)

T- The taste is bright and fruity. Some of that earthy yeast is present, as is a very light caramel note from the malt. Just a slight hop bitterness to round it out. Refreshing and quite nice. (3.55)

M- Lots of carbonation and very light. Perhaps a bit too thin, but it is very drinkable and crisp. (3.5)

O- Certainly fits the billing of a session saison. Could easily drink a few of these on a sunny spring or summer day. I wish it had more complexity, but it is a reasonable interpretation of the style that successfully represents even with the low ABV. (3.52)
