look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Huge fluffy snow-white head with very good retention and tons of scattered lacing. Pale, golden straw color, very lively and hazy.

Aromas of lemon and sweet Belgian yeast immediately spring forth, balanced against a lightly wheat/straw scented malt bill. Slightly sharp and skunky funk aroma starts to cut through.

Flavor truly follows the nose: light and delicate, with a honey-sweetness, a not-quite-tart off-ness, a thick wheaty body (and associated flat aftertaste reminiscent of chewing wheat), and a dry bitterness, slightly earthy, with an even smaller hint of citrus. Not getting a significant sense of Amarillo hops, but that's appropriate to both the style and aging the bottle.

Surprisingly chewy for the style, medium feel overall, pretty drinkable, minor sting and liveliness. Creamy and overall very nice mouthfeel.

This is a pretty good Saison, and I feel an honest take on the genre, but it doesn't seem to do any one thing particularly well (except mouthfeel, perhaps). I would prefer it if any of the flavors had a bit more of a pronounced effect: more hops, or more of a rustic, non-Brett funkiness, more of the malt bill. Instead, it all comes together in a satisfying, but not overly impressive, package.
