4.53/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours relatively clear, with some minor yeast particles present, though that's not unusal for the style. Good carbonation and a nice big head top the beer. Aroma is tart and fruity with damp straw underneath. Taste is honey sweet - almost surprisingly so - followed by a refreshing lemon dryness. Crisp light cracker malt can be found in the middle of the beer, with a light peppery phonolic finish that's dry and leaves you wanting to drink more. Mouthfeel is effervescent and somewhat sticky, kind of like a sticky soda. Overall a very solid example of the style and better than I was anticipating.

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.
