Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a slightly hazy straw color with four plus fingers of fluffy white head of mostly large bubbles. Head sticks around a while, dissipating slowly leaving a few spots of bubbles along the edge here and there. Highly effervescent, with plenty of carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass. There's quite a bit of floaties at the bottom, so poured gently.

Nose is fairly typical saison, big yeast character, spicy with coriander and white pepper, fruity esters, biscuit malt, grapefruit peel, floral and grassy hops.

Taste leads with a light hop bitterness, grapefruit peel, grassy and herbal, with some of the floral hops coming out as it warms. Not as much spice as on the nose, hoppier in taste with just some light biscuit malt sweetness. Bone dry with some light lingering spice and grapefruit pith bitterness.

Light body and highly carbonated, though not excessively so. Very refreshing and would be nice on a warm summer's day. A nice representation of a typical saison.

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.
