Pours a slightly hazy light golden yellow color with a fairly solid white head that clings to the rim.
Lemon, sweet bready malt, and hints of herbal hop are evident in the aroma, which is somewhat subtle. There's a champagne-like finish.
A wine-like fruitiness dominates the flavor initially, slightly tangy, with a lemony finish. Cracker-like slightly sweet malt supports the taste, with a dry, peppery finish cleaning up the flavor.
The body is fairly heavy, with moderately high carbonation and a decidedly dry finish.
An interesting take on a saison, more wine-like than anticipated, and somewhat two-note. I'm not a huge lemon fan, so not really my brew.
Tried this in 14, and I get much more floral and herbal hop character, with a fair amount of bitterness in the finish.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: bottle
