Pours a hazy golden brown with a half-finger of white head. Smell is a noticeable mustiness and some nice citrus and spice notes. Taste is similar to smell, with a pretty predominant yeast funkiness, a bit of a mineral taste, along with some grapefruit and faint lemon. Finishes very earthy. Medium mouthfeel, which is pretty crisp and has a nice lingering earthiness. Overall, I really enjoyed this and would have it again. Almost a bit heavy for a saison, but still refreshing, delicious and interesting. (506 characters)

This arrived as a dark yellow with a fairly thin head. Lace is minimal.

The smell is pretty decent, but seem to be either dominated by one herb or simply lacking any others. The taste is similar, in that it's somewhat lacking in variety and the interesting flavors brought forth by other saisons. Mouthfeel suffers along these lines as well. The simplicity doesn't suit the style. The drinkability is still good. (415 characters)

On tap at the brewpub. So-so saison, certainly displaying white pepper, coriander, and yeast which is an obstacle. Not a lot of inviting spices, however. Quaffable. Blonde coloured body. Merely hint of lemon. Appropriately carbonated. Would like some more bold taste. (267 characters)
