4.39/5 rDev +4.8%
A: into a tulip: hazy gold with lots of suspended sediment; fluffy head that persisted nicely and left some lace behind
S: light bready malt with tons of earthy/herbal hop and yeast notes
T: delicate pale malts and zesty, spicy and floral hops and fresh, bright yeast; bitter/tart on the backend
M: crisp, fresh, and light; sparkly carbonation; very clean-finishing
O: I'm pretty sure this is a benchmark saison - light, clean-tasting, refreshing and satisfying - easy-drinking.

one of the classic saisons, and one ive been meaning to try again and review for awhile. i really enjoy this beer. its pale honey colored in appearance and a bit cloudy with an absolutely massive white foam head, like a giant snow bank. a big old white pillow that hardly subsides at all. the nose is delicate pitted fruit and a moderately spicy belgian yeast. wheat malt and yeast are the first two flavors i pick up, but there is a gentle summery sweetness in the back end with golden raisins, peaches, and wildflowers. amazing how all these subtleties come together in a beer that remains so light and airy. effervescent carbonation makes it feel even lighter in the mouth, and although the body isnt that light, it really feels like drinking a cloud. super sessionable in the summertime for sure, and a nice reminder in the winter that summer will come again, as it always does. one of the better widely available saisons out there.
