750 poured into a De Struise glass that looks like the one they print on the back of the bottle.
This thing is carbonated! Bright golden body that would probably be totally transparent if it weren’t for the rush of bubbles. The big white head just kept growing after I poured.
Banana, citrus, grass, and pepper in the nose. Not much phunk.
Citrus and grass are very prominent in the taste. Pepper and clove type spice character. Little banana and a general fruitiness. Slightly tart.
Lots of bubbles. Light body. Super dry.
I dig super bubbly bottle conditioned Belgians but holy crap I have never seen so many bubbles in a beer. It settles after a couple minutes though and makes for a great drinking experience. A solid Saison for sure.

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.
