New York

4.4/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a light golden hay color, slightly hazy, with a fluffy 3-4 finger head. Leaves a decent ring of foam around the glass and a film of bubbles. up top. Some visible carbonation riding up the glass. Looks a little thin and pale.

Smell is some earthiness, a slightly cheesy funk, some spices, and some sweet fruits. A bit of citrus, maybe some peach. Starts out a bit funkier, but the sweetness comes through more as it warms. Really nice, quite complex. The highlight of the beer.

Taste is a little peppery spice, bit of earthiness, some citrus. A hint of bitterness going down. The sweet peach flavor is there but doesn't come through as strong as in the aroma, which is a little disappointing. Still, this is excellent.

Mouthfeel is nice, but a little thinner and less carbonated than would be ideal.

This is an excellent saison. Really tasty, refreshing, and complex. Great sipper, but also very sessionable. Perfect for the weather.
