Served on tap in a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer is served a clear golden orange color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head fades rather quickly leaving a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer big of a sour green apple smell mixed with lots grassy and hay-like smells mixed within. Along with these smells are some wheat and some other sweeter fruit aromas of a peach and apricot smell as well as some yeasty smells and a bit of pepper and lemongrass.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready and somewhat doughy taste mixed with some fruit flavors of tangerine and apricot. A sour apple flavor quickly comes to the tongue as the taste advances, bringing with it a hay-like and funky flavor. More fruit flavors of apricot and some peach come to the tongue toward the middle bringing more sweetness to the brew. At that time the doughy flavors are lost, crisping up the flavor a bit more. At the end, a bit more hay and grass along with the slightest bit of a grassy and earthy hop flavor as well as some lemongrass and pepper come to the tongue, which mix with the rest leaving a wheaty and fruity lightly hopped funky flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner and crisper side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. A bit more carbonation may have been slightly better for the style and complemented the crispness and funk of the brew slightly better, but even with that said the thinner body did just that, so overall the feel was rather decent.

Overall – A rather nice saison with a good balance of funk, sweet, and malt that creates a very easy drinking style.

Poured into a Prairie Teku glass from a 22 oz bottle

A- Hazy Golden amber coloring. fluff off white head that dissipated a little quicker than I would have liked. Not overly carbonated.

S- Smells amazing. Big notes from the yeast, lemon, pepper earthyness, classic saison smells. This is where the beer shines.

T- Again big flavors from the yeast, lots of lemon, other citrus perhaps, little bit of pepper.

M- Good body, maybe a bigger body than most saisons I've had have had. Not as carbonated as I would have liked but this is quenching.

Overall- I liked this beer much more on tap at voodoo. I'm not sure if they didn't get the carbonation they wanted in the bottles. I've had better and I've certainly had worse. This is a very good beer though and they executed it very well. Great beer to drink on a porch in the summer.I hope they make more saisons in the future.

Poured from the 22oz bottle to form a tight head atop a cloudy golden base.

The flavors are quite refreshing. Earthy and malty with citrus notes (faint lemon) and a hint of tartness.

The weather is getting warmer and this was a great beer to say good-bye to winter!

Note- Admittedly, I am quite surprised by some of the reviews. I did not experience any off-flavors at all. That is very unfortunate, but I am a little glad that I purchased before reading the reviews because it was well worth it.
