3.69/5  rDev -9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a pint can into a tulip.

Pours straw-gold and well-hazed with excellent foamy/rocky head and lacing. The head retention is moderate. The lacing is outstanding. This is a nice-looking brew.

The aromas are strong of citrus (lemon/lime). Nice funk and brine in the background.

The flavors are a bit of a letdown after the amazing aromas. Flavorful and pleasing but fairly muddled. Honey sweetness on the tip of the tongue gives way very quickly to strong lemon-lime-ness. A ton of it actually. Traditional esters are muted but manifest slowly as the brew warms, as does a pleasing brine note. Hints of hops at the finish.

The brew has excellent feel. Well carbonated and somewhat drying at the finish.

A pretty decent saison that could have been excellent had the lemon/lime not gotten a bit out of control. It just overwhelmed some of the other notes. The funk and brine are there, but they don't get a chance to shine.

trong lemon/lime, slightly sweet, almost no bitterness, and slightly salty. Excellent dry mouthfeel. Overall outstanding. Would be great for a hot summer day.

Goose Island Limoneta Saison, 6% ABV. Pours lemon yellow, slightly cloudy, with a 3+ finger bright white foamy head that left solid foam lacing. Nose is lemon/lime, grass, and funk. Taste follows, strong lemon/lime, slightly sweet, almost no bitterness, and slightly salty. Excellent dry mouthfeel. Overall outstanding. Would be great for a hot summer day.
