Decent saison, nice meadow/grassy notes some sourdough. Hazy orange golden in color, tight white head, malt and hops more prevalent than in previous years edition.

Mini growler picked up tonight at the Boise COOP.. Pretty cheap at I think $8ish.. Clean pretty standard spicy saison notes that remind me of light clove and white peppercorn... interesting mix of oat and wheat flavor.. ginger with warmth and something that I associate with grain of paradise??? Nice saison for sure but relies too much on the spices.

Served on-tap at Rattle N Hum in New York, NY

A: Pours a hazy medium golden yellow in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation and some lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall off-white head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of floral hops and just a touch of yeast spiciness.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of pale malts with some light to moderate flavors of yeast spiciness (black pepper and clove). There is a light to moderate amount of floral flavors from the hops. Very light amounts of bitterness which fades very quickly.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: I prefer my saisons with just a touch of barnyard funk or sourness in them and this one was just lacking that element though it was quite easy to drink. Not as much complexity in the smell and taste as I would like. Think I would not get it again.
