3.4/5 rDev -3.7%
A: Pours a hazy medium golden yellow in color with some light amounts of visible carbonation and some yeast particles in suspension. The beer has a half finger tall white head that quickly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of pale malts along with some very light lemon/citrus, black pepper, and yeast. Very little funkiness.
T: Starts out with a pale malt body with some light hints of candi sugar sweetness, lemon citrus, and black pepper spice.There is a touch of yeasty flavors in the finish.
M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Dry in the finish.
O: This is a pretty average saison in my opinion, easy to drink and refreshing but not as good as some of the other saisons I have had recently. The flavors are quite enjoyable but this is not likely one that I will be rushing out to get again.

3.65/5 rDev +3.4%
Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.
A dull lemony yellow brown body, kind of opaque, with some nice rising thing carbonation, presents a good white and creamy head even and uniform. Settles slowly to a whipped up character. Fairly good looking.
Nose is some mild farmhouse like funk, slight spritzy carbon dioxide, small lemon, slightly floral. Subtle but nice.
Palate seems to be quite much what the nose provided. A good texture and body with a decent malt backbone. Dense malts give to a little bit of funky quality. Citrus and lemon seems to come out with some bread action on the finish. Sweet cream like tastes pop out a bit also.
Overall quite good, but also kind of hammered down. Good texture and feel really saves the beer, I could have this again.

a nice clean golden/straw yellow pour with 1/2" foamy white head and great lacing. smells spicy, funky, zesty... celery, pepper, mushrooms... nice! taste is much like the smell + a bit bready.. lemongrass too. light body with champagne like carbonation.. a bit earthy so it leaves a bitter feeling on the cheeks on the way down.
overall, a pretty solid saison. would probably go GREAT with a bbq.. it could easily replace a salad :)
