Appearance: cloudy amber with dense foamy head., almost like real lemonade. Medium-beaded carbonation. Monstrous, lively head that seems to have a life of its own! Even the most careful pour yields copious clouds of densely fulminating foam that shows no signs of giving ground below the ½” mark.

Smell: big herbs, hay, and yeast. I feel like I'm on a farm!

Taste: Spiciness with fruity/citrus notes.

Mouthfeel: lots o' carbonation with a crisp, light finish.

Drinkability: medium to high. This is a very complex beer that may promote discussion or arguments while enjoying.

Overall: one of the must-haves of the saison style.

25.4 oz (1.5 L) bottle; snifter

A – Massive foamy white head, 1 ½ to 2 inches. Five minutes later it's almost all still there, big and craggy still in the glass. Medium gold to orange in color. Light haze. (4.50)

S – Unfortunately, my bottle got lightstruck / skunked. Going to try to smell through it. Some non-light-caused funk, sweetness, perhaps lemon. Maybe a taste of lime even (No score assigned due to handling flaw).

T – Very earthy, lots of citrus, and some pepper. This is an incredibly refreshing beer. No sweetness. Nice acidity balanced by the high carbonation level. Would go really well with spicy, citrusy food. Very light on malt and hop flavors (or more likely just really well balanced), but still very flavorful. (4.00)

M – Highly carbonated, tons of thick, luscious bubbles on the tongue and on the finish. A real thirst-quencher. Very light and refreshing. (4.25)

O – Not going to hold the skunking against it, as I’m seeing that it’s pretty common to this beer. I sure wish they would reconsider the green bottles, though. I understand why this is THE classic example of a saison. From the big foamy pour to the quenching finish, this is a solid, great beer all-around. (4.25)
