Top shelf saison. Yo have to let this one warm up a bit and give the bottle a good swirl before each pour. Given that, prepare for an excellent saison. Poured from a corked and caged 750 ml bottle into a pint glass. Hazy apple cider color with a huge, delicately bubbly white head that settles into a frothy head as the bubbles die down. Minimal lacing.
My initial pour provided a clear golden beer with minimal aroma. After a swirl, the yeast and funk were very apparent to go along with the citrus/lemony aroma and the hazy darker color.
Taste is marvelous. The yeast and funk are persistent but very gentle. They are expertly blended with a lemony/citrus flavor. The alcohol presence is minimal and there are no harsh flavors of any kind.
Mouthfeel is rich with the carbonation just right. No alcohol burn.
This is a fine Saison. There is nothing that blows you away but all the elements are there. You could sip on this one all night.
