look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is hazy light golden yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high bright white head that took a long time to die down, leaving a thin film of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of Belgian yeast are present in the nose along with hints of peppery spices.
T: As in the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of Belgian yeast, which are accompanied by hints of grassy hops. Notes of peppery spices are also present, and these linger through the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. All of the carbonation makes it feel a little airy.
O: This beer is extremely flavorful given its light body and has some refreshing properties, similar to what you would expect from a saison. It is a really nice beer for the summer months.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden with a big, pillowy white head that lingers for a while,
but dissipates slowly into a cap. There is plenty of lacing left behind on the glass.

Aroma: Hay and pepper dominate on the nose, but there is some funky yeast in the
background.

Taste: Funky and yeasty all the way down. A nice bit of sweetness builds its way up a you
continue to drink it.

Palate: The Belgian funkiness mixes well with the pepper on the finish to create a nice, long
aftertaste. Body is light, and the carbonation is about average, which makes for an easy
drinking beer.

Overall: This is a delicious beer! This is definitely a recommended four pack for a beautiful
afternoon in the yard (or for a football Sunday).

Pours light bronze/gold, heavy white foam. Lots of lacing. Belgian yeast nose, little peppery. Taste is smooth, surrounding hop presence. Fades in/fades out. Flavors of pear. Even and flavorful. Consistent. Tasty bitter. 7/25
