Excellent dry saison, especially as the beer warms. A lot of soft funky notes. When the beer first hits your mouth a tad sweet which just transforms into a dry bitterness expected of a great farmhouse beer. The beer pours with a thick, easy forming head that lingers for a little bit. Overall excellent beer for style, should be a good one to keep around for an extra year to let it dry out some more.

Poured into a Spiegelglau snifter. As others have mentioned, big, light, pale head, very compact bubbles. The beer itself is a very nice, pale, pale gold. Smell is decent, more malt than I would have thought. Mouthfeel is good, however not to full. Taste is a little underwhelming. Some hoppiness, floral, but not the depth and finish I was hoping for. Still very drinkable, but I had higher expectations(maybe too high) Still a very good Saison, great on a muggy July night.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: It is very active and frothy with lines of bubbles running up the glass long after the beer was poured. The perfect bubbles rest upon each other forming walls up the side of the glass. They are beautiful. The head lingers long after. The bubbles leave behind neat patterns on the glass and great lacing. The beer is light golden, warm and opaque. Beautiful bubbles come to the surface after each sip.

Aroma: It isn't floral or fruity but hoppy, yeasty, herbal, piney, and dank like an old verdant forest.

Taste: It is crisp, dry, tart, yeasty and hoppy.

Mouthful: Light, smooth, perfectly carbonated which surrounds the floating hop bitterness, which ultimately settles in the back of the mouth.

Overall: The appearance and mouthful were the best parts of this beer for me. There was a lot of great aromas and tastes in the beer but I felt that they were hidden by an abundance of hop bitterness that came across as too strong for a saison.
