look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a simple glass tumbler. Gentle hand. No clear date on the bottle. Enjoyed this many times, but never reviewed.

A: Cloudy, pale yellow with a faint tint of green. Towering 3+ fingers of rocky, white head. Good retention. Light lacing.

S: Inviting, mild Belgian yeast spice. Coriander. Light hay. Faint floral notes. Lemon. Noble-type hops.

T: A rustic, lightly musty spice opens with the development of a balancing hop bitterness. A bit of fruit and tartness add some depth. Fairly dry finish. Light alcohol presence.

M: Moderately high carbonation with a moderate body. Drinks nicely despite a solid effervescence.

O: Refreshing and easy drinking saison with a deceptively stout ABV, but no arguments here. Good balance. Warrants the regular revisits I throw its way.

Prost!

4.81/5  rDev +15.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance:
Light blonde body that’s very clear and topped off with a thick white head.
Smell:
Spices and mild citrus fruit are up front, mild alcohol and wheat all hit you at once.
Taste:
Grapefruit, although very mild, is present, the spiciness really makes this ale tasteful, some grass flavors come through too. A little peppercorn mixed in with lemon and orange zest make for an interesting ale.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied with plenty of carbonation.

Overall:
This is an excellent ale, the flavor is complex and makes you yearn for another drink, the aroma is sweet overall and really inviting. I highly recommend drinking this ale.
