App- This was a light and bright yellow with a couple dots of cling. A pretty nice one finger head.

Smell- Very timid yeastiness with a funk and some damp earthiness to it. An interesting mix of some straw and a bit of wheat.

Taste- With the corn it's an interesting take on a saison. It's a bit grainy but still good. This was down the middle in terms of saison tastes with it being not overly peppery and at the same time not very citrusy either.

Mouth- This was a medium bodied beer with a high carbonation. The aftertaste is a crisp wheat grain.

Drink- Its pretty tasty and a bit different and the flavors are a bit small but it's a nice beer. I might come back to this one because of $ point.

I usually do not like saisons at all. This one beats most for me (so maybe it's no good for a lover of saisons.

Right off the bat it hits you with a great yeast flavor. Complex, rich and somewhat malty.

It tastes more like a lot of wheat beers and that's an improvement. The burp is yummy. I will continue to avoid the style, but I don't regret geting this one.

On tap at Capone's.

Poured a medium and cloudy yellow color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of yeast, some citrus, and 'musty'. Tastes of citrus, a little fruity (bananas), and spices. Refreshing and drinkable.
