4.03/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750ml bottle poured into my mug(only thing I had at the time)

Appearance is a light yellow with a bit of light orange. Good two and and a half inch white fizzy head with great head retention. Good amounts of lacing is left behind.

Surprisingly this smells a bit more like a Belgian Pale Ale to me. I get a decent lemon citrus smell with some orange coriander and a bit of grass/earthy herbal smell. Some yeast and bit of hay like smell as well.

Taste upfront is very crisp with a lemon citrus taste with a bit of orange coriander backing it up. Midway a bit of a grass/herbal taste shows up with some yeast and cracker like taste finishing it off.

Medium bodied with high carbonation. Very crisp and clean taste that is refreshing and drinks mellow for a Saison.

I thought this was a bit non-traditional like Saison flavor, yet I liked what they did. Overall I would drink this again and recommend it.

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.
