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
