4.08/5 rDev -1.9%
A - Pours golden with visible carbonation. Foamy white head settles as it rests. Rings of lacing around the galss.
S - Scents of fresh citrus fruits and yeasty bread. Has a scent of spice as well.
T - Flavors of oranges give to a peppery spice. Finish has bitter notes which was surprising.
M - Very drinkable and refreshing feel. Body is lighter than the ABV; a real treat.
O - One of the better domestic saisons out there. As a fan of the style I give this high marks.

Reviewed from notes.
Hazy dark yellow color with a nicely fluffy head that lasts for quite some time, some lacing is present. Floral and citrus notes abound in the nose over a lightly peppered biscuit malt aroma. The flavor starts out with the pepper tones and has the malt rise up to meet it around midsip alongside lemon wedges and some more sweeter citrus elements (many kinds of oranges and a bit of lime acid splash) and a garnish level of pear esters as well. Creamy, soft texture over a medium body. Other than swinging a hair too far into sweetness for my preferences, it's hard to find something to criticize in this brew!

Pours a dark, golden color with a huge foamy head. Head quickly dissipates but leaves a light blanket of foam behind.
Scent is very fruity and slightly hoppy. Notes of grapefruit, lemon zest and spices, particularly pepper and coriander. Smells a lot like some witbiers I have tried.
Taste was wonderful. Full of sweet fruit flavors - peaches, orange, raisins, even a little bit of banana in the finish. Spice was present but not overwhelming. Again, pepper, coriander, but also cinnamon and vanilla. No alcohol taste at all, despite the 8% ABV.
Mouthfeel was pleasant. Goes down smoothly. Lightly carbonated.
Overall, a really solid beer. This was my first saison/farmhouse ale, and i found it to be quite enjoyable. I typically go for hoppy beers, but this was a nice change of pace. Will definitely try again...right now.

a: This beer pours a pale gold with excellent clarity. The long lasting white head settles to about a half a finger of compact bubbles leaving lacing on the glass.
s: Get your nose to the glass as soon as you pour, the aroma goes from almost a rock solid American IPA then transition in some of those saison fruit and spice aromas. That pretty well some up what I get here with citrus and piney American hops aromas with spicy, peppery and orange Belgian yeast aromas. The dominating hops and yeast aromas are well balance. There is also a soft alcohol aroma.
t: The moderately-high hops bitterness and spice dominate the flavor with moderate fruit flavors of orange and American hops. The hops are citrusy and piney while the spice is mostly pepper. There is a touch of that bubblegum brett flavor.
m: This is light and fluffy on the palate with a moderately-light body and high carbonation.
o: An awesome American interpretation of the Saison style. A World class beer!

AP: Pours a cloudy pale yellow with billowing eggshell white head.
AR: Lots of yeast and citrus, orange. Some bready malts.
TS: Tangy and citrusy, bitter for a saison, peppery and dry.
MF: Smooth and dry.
OV: A good saison, slightly underwhelming finish. I would return to this.

Light straw color, slightly hazy. Immense, vibrant white head. Creamy, chunky, and long lasting. Light aroma full of tartness, over-ripe fruit notes (apple in particular); cloves and a trace of cinnamon. Robust apple and sour taste with a nice bitterness emerging at the finish. Malt notes slowly emerge at the finish, too. Light, dry, tart mouthfeel; medium-light in character.
Not a style of beer I'm overly familiar with, but which I've had a few over the years, and this has been a consistent winner to me. Light and vibrant enough with a distinct taste profile that, if given an open mind for the style, is readily appealing. Nice complexity and balance. Easy to drink, even if you're new to the style.
