12 oz bottle poured into a Teku glass (no bottle date)

Bright orange hue with slim white head that holds throughout. Numerous bubbles constantly heading to the surface. This beer is clearly carbonated properly for the style of Saison I prefer. Not very hazy. The beer is clear and clean but certainly not transparent.

You get the Belgian yeast on the nose. You can tell it is a Saison, but there aren't really any other specific notes on the nose.

Very clean flavor on point with numerous other Saisons. There is some orange peel and various spices. Effortlessly drinkable. The effervescence carries into the mouthfeel making it a joy to drink. I would not hesitate to pick up this beer again as a go-to Saison.
