lots of carbonation on opening,

poured into my Dogfish IPA glass.

A: lots of head at first, but goes away quick after sitting a bit. Carb. bubbles, golden honey colored. 3.7

S: smells like parsley and thyme, maybe slightly rosemary, with an overall fruity hops feel.

T: tastes a lot like it smells. Holding on tongue is salty/farmhousey, goes down clean. Slight hoppy bitter aftertaste. 3.8

M: Carbonated with an herby spicyness. 3.7

O: has a nice character to it. The ingredients complement each other well in this saison. I'd drink it again, but wouldn't go out of my way to. 3.8
