A - Very pale yellow. It looks a lot like an adjunct, to be honest. There was a bit of white head, but it dissipates pretty quickly.
S - Smell is slightly musky, but it's too weak. I just have to smash my nose nearly into the beer in order to smell anything.
T - The taste is very similar to the smell. Slightly musky, but too weak again. It tastes kinda like a watered down saison, honestly.
M - Watery, once again. The finish is super clean, though, so it gets bonus points for that.
Overall, this is a pretty weak saison. It is a decent introduction to saison for people who are unfamiliar, but it's not a phenomenal beer.
