look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Incredibly light in color, giving an appearance similar to lemonade. Fluffy white head that leaves some islands of lace on the glass. The body of the beer is extremely hazy. Very tiny carbonation bubbles are visible.

S: I pick up some funky scent...no other way to describe it. Some rubber, some lemon zest, some skunk scent. I'm wondering if the bottle is skunked at all or if it's just part of the beer.

T: Well I am happy to say that there is no skunk in the taste. Very clean flavors, with the earthy hops coming through, there is a very faint grain flavor, and a good amount of spice. A little peppery and some lemon zest very faintly in the background. It's a very subtle tasting beer and is probably the easiest Saison I've ever had to drink.

M: The mouthfeel is outstanding. It is smooth and refreshing while drinking, but leaving a slight dryness at the end. It goes down very calmly and does not feel unsettling at all.

O: Overall I am really enjoying drinking this beer. When smelling the beer I thought it was going to be ripe with funky flavors when it came to tasting. It was a complete polar shift. I found that my glass appeared to empty much quicker than other saisons I've had. It is not full of sourness or horsey barnyard smells and flavors (at least to me). It is very subtle in all flavors and they meld nicely.

375ml bottle.

This one pours a light bodied opaque light gold in color with a one finger white head that sticks to the side of the glass. The nose is light and yeasty with orange peel, lemon rhind, aged hops, Belgian yeast, and a light floral character. The flavors too, are light and citrusy. There is a light orange sweetness followed by the lemon bitterness, a touch of corn, old hops, and light hibiscus and tea. I would say I prefer the nose a little more. It drinks very light and is definitely sessionable and easy to drink. This would be great for warmer weather. Overall this is a fine saison and one that at $10 is a must try.
