4.58/5 rDev +11.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Opened with a loud pop from a magnum. Poured into a tulip. Huge white head over golden brew with bubbles coming nonstop from the bottom of the glass. It looks like Duvel, which is the highest compliment I can give it. The only difference is the head is not meringue like. Just a regular soft foam head. Great looking beer nonetheless. Good retention and nice soft lacing
The smell is very clean and lemony. Great smell for a summer beer. Slightly hoppy but clean.
Taste is great. Clean dry slightly lemony. It tastes more like a Belgian golden ale than a saison, but really good. The hops are there but not over powering. Super clean finish. Great taste on a hot summer afternoon. The bottle describes this beer as crackling. Agreed.
Mouthfeel is very smooth. Even with the great carbonation, very smooth.
Overall, this beer is a keeper. Really nice clean summer Belgian. I will buy again. Love the slightly hoppy clean taste.

4.14/5 rDev +0.7%

A: Lemony like lemon juice, cloudy but with lots of carbonation, and 4 fingers of off white foamy head.
S: Lemon, lemon zest, vitamin c (non chewable) or aspirin. Belgian yeasts, dill pickle, very light.
T: Lightly sweetened lemonade but without the same acidity so more like a lemon drink but without the sweetness, dill as in the herb, vitamin c or aspirin. Certainly children’s aspirin. Not getting the alcohol which is great for more than 7% ABV.
M: Light body, lots of foamy carbonation, dry finish.
O: Excellent brew. Less is more as far as flavor, alcohol level and weightiness. This is more because of its light feel, less sweetness, dry character, and overall light herbal quality. Bought in Savannah, drank in Cocoa Beach July 10th, 2014.
