4.3/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 1 pt 9 0z bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass. I could not find a bottle dated code.

Pale yellow in color, cloudy with lots of carbonation. Two finger creamy, white head dissipated farily quickly. Nice lacing left up and down the glass.

I smell lemons and grass. From the smell I get the idea this may be a little sweet. Can smell a hint of hops.

Tastes as it smells. First it's citrusy then comes the grass notes and a crisp hop finish. The hops are not overpowering but present. The taste of the Sorachi Ace hops are quite unique.

This is a light bodied beer with a lot of carbonation. I get a grassy after taste that is quite smooth. Fairly high abv at 7.6% but alchohol is not noticeable.

As mentioned before, this is a light bodied and very refreshing beer. Very tasty and would be/is excellent for a backyard barbeque when the weather is nice. I had mine with a medium rare cheeseburger with blue cheese crumbles and barbeque sauce, which turned out to be a fantastic pairing. At about 13.00 dollars a bottle i don't know how many more I'll actually drink. This would be great in a 6 or 4 pack.

4.08/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- Very light straw yellow coloration, hazy. Good head, frothy and white.

Smell- Yeast, cat pee.

Taste- Strong Belgian yeast comes through here. Slight barnyard character. Very lemony with some grassy notes. Hint of soapiness. Finishes dry with medium hop character.

Mouthfeel- Highly effervescent carbonation.

Overall a unique and interesting Saison. I'd rank it just behind Tank 7 and Hennepin.
