Light, highly carbonated. Fruit esters are underplayed by the spiciness of the beer. Medium mouthfeel with a clean, dry finish

Pours hazy straw gold with a 2” pure white very fluffy and creamy head that produces excellent detailed lace. A light fruit, floral nose with light grains and a touch of grain spice. On the palate it is dry, light, and effervescent, with a little slickness. The flavors are light fruit on the palate over light grains with a moderate malt sweetness. The hops are very restrained. It has a light medium body with above average carbonation. Refreshing and very drinkable.

Floral and coriander aromas scent citrus. Flavor reveals citrus underpinnings, with a wheat backbone and a dry, lightly spicy finish. Not my favorite style.

Thanks Wishuwerebeer for sharing this 750ml corked and caged bottle. Poured into a tulip, the brew appears a hazy golden yellow color with a resounding white cap that fills the glass. The smell of this is trouble...its quite sulfuric like egg farts with a solid backing of overspray by skunk piss. The taste luckily doesnt present that much sulfur and skunkiness. Instead, a sweet cereal grain presence is upfront, mineral filled carbonic character through the middle and a finish that is quite bitter with an herbal sort of grassiness. It is light bodied and very tingly on the tongue from the excessive carbonation. I would not recommend this. The dude at the bottleshop where this was bought recommended it to my friend saying "this is the best thing in here right now." What a joke...no, surely it was not. Not even close.

Very good. Tough to find a good Saison that isn't really just an American Wild Ale that the brewers decided to call a Saison instead. Nice and dry, good carbonation, great peppery yeast character.

Hard lemon candy, lightly toasted bread, white peppercorns. Very light and dry with little bitterness. Super high carbonation, so much so it seems to evaporate on the tongue. Very refreshing with some personality.
