I love this beer. I've had it a few times on tap and in growlers. I don't know how to describe the flavour I pick up other than a hint of bubblegum. You might think it would be bad but this beer is great!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

750 ml bottles with cork and cage. Served fairly cold into a pint glass. Purchased from LCBO for $10 CDN. Best before may 2017.

Appearance - slightly hazy pale golden color. Four fingers of white head with great retention. Lots of bubbles and great sticky lacing left inside of the glass.

Smell - light airy with plenty of lemon and a few subtle spices. Aromatic yet light and delicate. Just a faint fruity aroma.

Taste - delicious amount of lemon, lemon zest, lemon peel. Awesome. Theres some subtle spices going on here too, but the lemon is the star. Alcohol is imperceptible. Very fresh tasting, a hint of dill in there too which was interesting to say the least.

Mouthfeel - incredibly light, somewhat juicy yet even keeled mouthfeel. Phenomenal. Spritzy carbonation throughout.

Overall - a great saison, one of the best of the style with a lemon based feel and a great lightness. A great beer year round, but I can imagine this being even better on a hot summers evening.
