This beer is alive inside! After popping the cork and pouring into the glass, the head is alive! Frothyness lasted quite some time until it rested. The beer is a hazy golden colour, tastes of citrus come to the palate. After the beer warms close to room temp, there are hints of mild hoppiness. Overall a pleasant, refreshing brew to savor!

I felt this beer was a bit overrated. It was tasty but nothing about it really stood out to me. It smells a bit like honey and looks attractive in a glass. It has an interesting mouthfeel with a crisp flavor. There are hints of spice, grain and a tiny bit of hops in a sip. The finish is dry but its light enough to be drinkable. When thinking back on my first experience with this style, I remembered enjoying Dupont more. However, I'd have to try it again to explain what I liked about that brew. Although considering the quality I was surprised to see this was a domestic beer. I have a feeling I need to try more Saisons to see if my bias is against the style rather than the brewery.
