look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

750 ml poured into SN Snifter.

A: Beautifully clear dark golden like color with a huge effervescent white creamy head made of tiny bubbles that never stop rising from the bottom of the glass.

S: Great earthyness, hay like, slight citrus but more like lemon grass. Good phenolic character behind everything, smells great and can't wait to drink.

T: Nice fruitiness, slight citrusi and a tad bitter at the end. A great beer with a lot going on but just hard to pin point exactly what that is. I guess that's what makes this style so intreaging. Again though, some lemon grass and good maltiness that comes through fruity like. A very clean yet satisfyingly phenolic and balanced.

M: Great body from the high carbonation. Phenols and bitterness leave a satisfying aftertaste that is very characteristic in Saisons, very delicious and clean example. I guess that's why this is a benchmark beer for this style for many people.

O: A great example, very refreshing on a hot summer day especially after brewing a batch of Saison my self. A perfect beer to have after a hard days work. Definitely would have hit the spot after a hard days work on the farm.

Appearance. Pours a hazy straw gold with a big 2+ fingers of fluffy white head. Very nice.

Smell. Peppery saison yeast, some sweet and tart light fruits, a little bit of lemon, bananna and wheat with just a bit of clove, skunk, and maybe some coriander.

Taste. Peppery saison yeast again, wheat and some bitter grassy hops, a little of that skunk I was smelling, a bit of banana and spice too.

Mouthfeel. Medium body with fairly strong, fine carbonation.

Overall. A fine and exemplary saison. Nothing very exciting, just a well made beer.
