S: Abundant mintyfreshness and grapefruit/mango hops that have a bit of a wild, earthy edge that comes from coriander. Moderate lemon pepper (like the muffin). Light rustic bread, actual yeastiness. Hops > yeast character, but decently balanced and complex.
T: Crisp, slight green apple tartness and decent carbonation set this up to be a highly quaffable brew. Straw and medium intensity complex pepper spiciness hit at first, very pleasantly. In the middle there is more complex pepper, grass, apricot, grapfruit, and light lemon verbena. Rather than an upper (lively fruit), this is more of a downer (earthy) saison. Neither sweet nor bitter, just a touch dry, with nothing really catching your attention since its so smoothly melded. Medium-low mouthfeel adds to the aforementioned crispness and drinkability. Finish is perfectly dry, with notes of primarily of coriander as well as lemon/grapefruit (somewhat pithy), apricot, herbs.
Notes: Nice balanced saison. Hop forward, so it'd be a good entré for hop heads to the style. More earthy (and somewhat spicy) and less juicy/lively/zesty than some of the classics out there, but perhaps more like the original old-world style. Very nice and very, very drinkable.
