Pours a light transparent yellow, slightly cloudy but mostly transparent. Tons of carbonation apparent in the body. Tons. A smooth white head leaves nice lacing. Aroma is lemon, grass, bubble gum, pale malt sweetness and yeast. Taste mostly mirrors the scent, but with just a touch of tartness. A nice earthyness which matches the sweetness. Enough hops to make their presence known in the backdrop. Mouthfeel is perhaps a touch too carbonated, though that is fairly typical for the style. Smooth and refreshing. Alcohol barely noticeable. A great blend of sweetness and earthyness, and a touch of tart. Fantastic beer that can be enjoyed with any meal or at any time. An extremely versatile brew.

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.
