Poured a clear golden amber with an over the top fluffy white head, carbonation galore. Lots of sticky lacing. Aromas of grassy hops, herbs and malt. On the palette is where this Saison shines, with as plethora of spices, pine, cloves, coriander, sage, lemon zest, and pepper predominate. Medium bodied with tons of carbonation. A true trifecta, well done! Two thumbs up.

12oz bottle served in a large wine glass.

L - hazed golden color with a fluffy white head that stayed as a layer and left trails of lacing.
S - saison aroma with a kick of spices.
T - the spices really shine through without becoming overbearing with a fruity hop bitterness on the finish.
F - medium bodied with good carbonation.
D - quite a tasty treat.

I got this beer as a 4th of July present. It pours a hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Lots of herbs on the nose, sage, with bit of funk. The herbs blend with some lemon and make an interesting taste. After the initial sip the herbs take a back seat to a pleasant grassiness. It is very light and highly carbonated. An interesting brew, very glad I got to try it.
