12oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A - pours a chill hazed straw yellow, 1" white head formation. Slick lacing that didn't cling

S - Some funkiness and tart. Lemons, pepper, yeast

T - A tangy lemony flavour with an odd, almost sour funkiness to it. I don't expect Saison/farmhouses to be this tart, maybe it is just me.

M - Light, crisp, dry

O - Average saison, a bit too tart but not bad.

First off I love the can. This is a solid saison. The smell is a bit faint with some peppery yeasty spice, light fruits, and maybe some earthy hops. The taste is full and delicious leaning towards spice rather than tart. Reminds me of Hennepin. yb
