Appearance: Hazy vibrant yellow golden color with a huge head and ton of lacing

Smell: lemon zest, yeast, spice

Taste: Follows the smell with lemon citrus, yeast, and slight spice, but I get more doughy malt on the palate which rounds everything out nicely

Mouthfeel: Medium body; Perfect carbonation, smooth and extremely drinkable, with slight bitterness

Overall: I haven't dabbled with this style much as saisons don't usually impress me, but this was just interesting enough to keep me satisfied. The flavors and aromas are a bit subdued than what I prefer, but its clean, balanced, drinkable, and ultimately damn tasty. This is a summer beer for the record books. Recommended!
