look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

375ml bottle poured into a tulip.

A: Light orange/yellow straw color. Pretty hazy. Big three finger cloud like white head with amazing retention and sticky lacing.

S: Very yeasty. Awesome funk that is light enough to let other aromas shine through. Getting some citrus, slight tart apples, lemon, and touches of grapefruit. Smells a little grainy. Pretty complex. Awesome smelling Saison.

T: Grain and yeast upfront. A funky citrus comes through next with a nice sour/tart/funky apple flavor. A touch of spice. Light floral hop notes.

M: Light bodied. High carbonation. Super crisp. Super dry.

O: Awesome Saison. The best I've had. Very drinkable. Everything just works in this beer.

A flaxen streaming liquid under layers of stiff foam radiates scents of the earth. A gift basket of aroma: lavender salts, forest honey, radish greens and apple butter packed in handfuls of fresh mown hay. My nose is all wet with puffy froth. Exceptionally balanced flavors reminiscent of that perfect after dinner salad of bitter greens, toasted sunflower seeds, farmer's cheese and dried cranberries in a light citrus vinaigrette.

When you've finished, use what's left of the head as a replacement for whipped cream on your fresh blackberries. I love it.

I can't believe I've waited this long to try this beer...

Beautiful pour with a frothy persistent white head that never leaves the glass... Lots of evident carbonation present... One beautiful beer...

Very vibrant earthy smell present... slightly citrusy in nature with an earthy funkiness in the background... Amazing aromas... Lots of yeastiness present as well... Just smells like a great hot weather ale...

Uber refreshing flavors of barnyard funk, lemon zest, a little hay, some yeast, a touch of booze... It hits the spot on a 100 degree day here in West TN... I only have one bottle which is probably a good thing... This is so delicious and refreshing I could get carried away with this... It's the perfect saison... Probably the best example I've ever had...

I loved this beer all the way around... A classic and one I won't pass up again...
