LongShot Lemon Pepper Saison appears bright golden color with a little bit of haze. The head is white and has averagae retention.
Its aroma is very complex with bright lemons upfront followed by typcial saison twang. There is a little bit of pepper, but it does not stand out.
It is extremely light if not flavorless starting off. On the mid palate the flavors of lemon juice, with twangy yeast and pepper (from grains of paradise). The finish is also very light, but has a lemon zest taste.
The body is light to medium, with a light carbonation.
LongShot Lemon Pepper Saison is very sessionable, giving a lot of the typical saison flavors with an unusual lemon/pepper twist.
Overall, this beer leaves a little bit to be desired from a flavor profile. It has a lot going on but it only last for a very short time. At the smae time it is one of the most drinkable saisons I have ever had and could easily drink a couple.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a half-pint chalice.
A: Slightly hazy, medium golden color with less than one finger of diminishing white foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass.
S: A mixture of esters, crisp phenolics, and Belgian aromatic malt.
T: Begins dry, with strong esters and bready malt. Acidity is restrained into the middle where malt becomes more crisp and crackery. Herbaceous hops emerge in the finish with a thread of savory cooking spices--notably cumin.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, slightly syrupy on the palate, with low carbonation.
D/O: A fairly straight-forward saison, whose dry flavor is undermined somewhat by the syrupy texture. Advertised flavors are well-integrated, practically hidden, although other herbal and metabolite flavors fall within appropriate bounds.
