Hazy deep straw color with a lot of orange to it. Bright white 1-finger head with medium retention and light lacing in the glass.
Kind of funky on the nose in a good way: orange peel, lemon zest, coriander, grain, mint, white flowers and the thread of a light sour lactic note that pulls through everything.
Old world feel from the new world with a light hop funk, white pepper, earthiness, white flowers and celery seed. Light bitterness allows the palate to keep deep earthy tones and still feel clean on the finish.
Medium bodied. The carbonation is a little aggressive in the mouthfeel, giving the beer a slightly frothy texture. A very faint hint of alcohol on the finish.
Nicely done. Surprised that the carbonation was as aggressive as it was on the palate based on the appearance, but there are several things going on with the beer. Solid execution of the style.

4.04/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours with three fingers of bubbly white head. Active carbonation is huge. Color is a light straw yellow. Sticky lacing left behind as head very slowly dissipated.
Smell: Pears, spices, bananas, and semi-sweet bready malts greet the drinker. There is some very dry pepper, and ashy notes on the body. Earth and dirt mesh with some light hop notes on the back end. Wow a lot going on here.
Taste: Touches of pepper and airy spices hit on the front first. Bread, sweet dough, and some salty hops show up on the body. More sweet malts ride through on the finish and some lingering spices go well together.
Mouthfeel: Bright carbonation with pleasant transitions of spice and sweet malts.
Overall: A great American saison. The pepper and dryness is heavier then I expected but this overall is a slow sipper that is easy to enjoy.
