A solid Saison with a very complex flavor. Wheaty with notes of pepper and citrus. Not overpowering and very enjoyable.

A: Yellow-gold color; nice head packed with small, tightly packed bubbles
S: Strong smell of grains of paradise; additional notes of anise, coriander and orange. Slightly musty.
M: Medium body; slightly coating on the mouth, dry in the middle
T: Grassy, well carbonated, spicy. Something in there made me think of hard apple cider.

12oz to a snifter, best by 12/15

Pours straw yellow with three fingers of head. Each bottle from this 4 pack has had a ridiculous amount of foam for some reason. Anyway, high carbonation, slightly cloudy, good lacing and unfortunately in my case retention 3/5

Smells pretty typical of a saison. Dominantly lemon with notes of pepper, clove, funk, and a bit of alcohol 4/5

Taste is pretty spot on with the nose. Strong lemon with notes of pepper and clove. Finishes with a nice touch of funk, with a hint of alcohol 4/5

Feel is a light body, very mild bitterness, very crisp finish. Alcohol is concealed well, easy to drink 4.25/5

Overall a really solid saison. Nothing too special about it, no major flaws, pretty well crafted 4/5
