Pours a honey yellow - just a hint of orange. The thinnest head lingers.

Floral, citrus, both subdued. Smell is subtle.

Spice, earthy notes, orange peel. Taste is subtle.

A unique dryness reminiscent of wine or a dry champagne. Spritsy mouthfeel.

Decent.

Really nice take on a saison. The hops compliment the golden raisins nicely. Not like champagne but Reminded me of white wine with a bit of pepper & carbonation. Could drink 3-4 bottles on a warm day outside.
