Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a tulip glass.
Aroma- Has a great "beer" aroma of yeast and spice
Appearance- This is a light golden color with some haziness visible. Pours a thick white head;
Taste- Incredible, citrus yeast and spice, a fantastic experience
Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation, A dry finish
Overall- One of the best beers I have ever had.

I poured from a 12 oz bottle (from a 4-pack) that was less than a month old. The beer had a very nice color. The aroma was very subtle. The taste was very sophisticated and elegant. Overall a very refined beer!

This is an exceptionally excellent Saison that seems to skirt the line between beer and wine. If you do not believe me, please try for yourself. There are notes of citrus, light wheat, grapes, semi sweet white wine, and hints of pepper here. This is very light for the ABV content it is said to have. This is an outstanding beer.

Would Drink Again: Yes
Would Purchase Again: Yes
