Hands down one of the best saisons I've ever had. Thanks ckeegan04 for the extra!

A - hazy pale copper to dark gold, lacy see thru head.

S - wonderfully complex aroma. citrus acidity followed by bubblegum, fresh lemon zest and a noticable hint of spicey rye. Tropical fruits linger in and out. Devoid of hop aroma but the yeast character makes up for it.

T - Lemony acidity followed by banana like esters and bubblegum. A zesty spiciness lingers in the background, never really comes forward just kind of intertwines between all of the yeasty flavors. Wheat graininess comes through as the beer warms up.

M - medium to high carbonation and thin to medium body. This beer remains refreshing without being too sweet or dry. Great balance in the finish. No puckering astringency.

D - Fantastic brew. Goes down easy but has sharp flavors that remain complex yet refreshing. Seek this beer out if you are ever in the area. Great brew, great representation of the style with a highly restrained addition of rye. Even though the beer seemed to be bottle conditioned, I still think they could clean it up a bit, it almost looks like a hefeweizen. Minor, MINOR flaw in an awesome beer!
