This is a very light yellow colored beer with a fair amount of body carbonation. A very thin scrim of white head tops the glass. There are lots of familiar Saison elements in the nose: a hint of sourness, a play on lemon and yeast, a bit of black pepper and coriander. But nothing distinctively plum scented.

The beer entertains more like a mild sour (beginners sour). You get quite a bit of tangy fruit, wheat biscuit, and pretzel yeast at first. This trails off into a very faint but enjoyable plum flavor, leaning more toward the bitter skin.

I am typically skeptical of fruit beers, but this is subtle combination and very well executed.
