look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
22 oz. bottle (Publick House Provisions) in a Brooklyn Tulip
Appearance: Light gold color; thick, foamy head that dissipates very, very slowly and leaves intricate lacing. Cloudy.
Smell: A fantastic smell. It's full of lemon zest, but the earthiness dominates the nose. A mixture of grass, hay, and mustiness (LOTS of yeast), combined with the lemon and citrus smell, gives this a great scent.
Taste: Even better than the smell. This tastes true to the Saison style; the mustiness of the smell dominates the taste, but there's also a nice lemon undertone, as well as a tartness that kicks in as it goes down.
Mouthfeel: Not as full-bodied as I had expected. There's a nice fizziness to this, though, that makes it interesting, and like a good saison, it's very dry.
Overall: I've been on a saison kick lately, and this ranks right up there. It's true to the style (dry; not sweet like American saisons/farmhouse ales seem to be) and exceedingly drinkable.
Serving type: bottle
