Bottle: Poured a light bright blonde color ale with a huge pure white foamy head with excellent retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart notes with some white wine and light botanical notes is intriguing and somewhat unique. Taste is also a mix of gin and white wine with sharp tart notes and some floral undertones with an herbal-like finish. Body is slightly hazy with great carbonation. Tartness is maybe more harp then I would like but very enjoyable mix of flavours with tons of complexity.

This is awesome.

Open the bottle to a gusher (I'm crying now over the ounce I spilled). It pours a beautiful cloudy golden color with a bright white head. Immediate apricot aromas from two feet away. The nose opens up to bright floral notes. Taste is devine and full of apricot sourness, with heaps of gin character and spice. Mouthfeel is super dry and refreshing.

A perfect saison
