750 ml bottle poured at 50° into a wine glass.

White wine-like yellow-orange with a very short-lived head. Carbonation visible.

Nose is lemon, guava, hay, and a little bit of pot-like dankness.

The taste follows, with tropical fruit, green apple, and lemon. Hints of cinnamon and candied orange. Medium sourness.

Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium.

Overall, a refreshing fruit-forward saison.

Bottle from MeadMe, thanks for the hookup.
Cloudy murky golden orange color with a bubbly beige head that lasts forever. Sour earthy citrus pie cherries grapefruit lemons and a light bready sweetness deep underneath. There's a lot going on here. Tart but not braceingly so with the fruit providing a nice counter.
