3.48/5 rDev -13.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
A- Poured a bubbly yellow-golden color with a full fluffy head. Plenty of lacing, and the head retained. Lots of active carbonation.
S- At the nose, I smelled light citrusy notes with lingering bread yeasty smells. Maybe some flowery lemon peels lurking.
T- Spicy and very dry, finishing clean. A peppery feel to it. No one flavor dominates, and as it warmed a bit in my glass, the flavor complexity really came out. Very well-balanced.
M- Light and dry. Very pleasant aftertaste.
O- A solid farmhouse-style ale: well-crafted and balanced. A bit too spicy and dry for my personal taste, but I enjoyed it nontheless.

750ml bottle into a Chimay goblet. From yesterday.
A: Pours a hazy gold color. The head is two fingers high and white in shade. I'm incredibly amazed by how creamy and well retaining its texture is, and also by how much lacing it leaves behind. There are also a noticeable amount of yeast particles near the bottom of the glass.
S: Aye, it's a bit skunky. Thankfully it doesn't obscure the other notes. I'm also getting noble hops, candied sugar, and spice. Shame about the skunk, but it doesn't fully ruin the nose.
T: MUCH better. It starts with a fantastic fruit notes - citrus, pineapple, peach, you name it. Spiciness enters the finish, bringing almost a sesame seed character. I'm also getting herbal and black pepper touches. It's just deep enough, yet still fantastically effortless and unique - and at the end of the day, that's what a saison should be.
M: I like how creamy, soft, and full it is. Yet, it's still bone dry, with medium carbonation. I love how it's both rich feeling AND refreshing all at the same time.
O: Oh yeah, this is the shit. The skunky nose isn't so offputting as to ruin this, and every other aspect is at least excellent. It's so drinkable, yet so rich and so flavorful. I need more of this in my life.
