look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Hazy burnished gold in color with a thick and lasting white fluffy head. Lemon zest, pepper and soapy aroma.

Taste: opens up spicy and crisp, follows up with a hint of malty sweetness, finishes with strong pepper and lemon zest and even some soapiness with hints of pear in the background. Lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Nice creamy head helps balance out the very light body to this beer. Crisp carbonation and astringency makes the finish a bit harsh.

Overall: I want to like this beer more than I actually do. I love saison-style ales and unique hops, but the hops dominate this one a bit too much, covering up the saison yeast character. The harsh finish drops the drinkability a bit.
