The beer is slightly turbid and yellow. The foam is white and comes up right. The foam has small bubbles and disappear quickly. The foam does not leave any direct traces in the glass. The aroma is slightly malty. The smells of bread will and lots of herbs. Here are hints of lemon, some gooseberry and a little clove. Some sweet notes of honey, little guys in Nassan. The taste has a dull malt flavor that is a little brödig. Here are some flavors of lemon, gooseberry, a little honey and cloves. Here are considerably more herbs and a little grassy flavor. Some bitterness sitting in a while. Light to medium body. Moderate to high crispy Carbonic. Herbaceous and fresh in flavor, good balance. A little dry and earthy. Occasionally bitterness which lasts for a while.

5/6....pours orange copper, somewhat bright. Very little foam remains. Fragrant floral nose, light yeasty undertone. Fruity funky taste, blend of sour and belgian yeasty hop. Slight apple crisp flavor. Big bubble gum flavor but a bit of an acidic aftertaste,

UPDATE - The new version in cans is a definite improvement. It's like the big brother of Extra Dry. Crisp and refreshing with lots of nice flavors. A saison at heart with funky notes and nice rustic and tart white grape juice from the Nelson hops. Great balance of flavors.

I enjoyed this saison. It reminded me a bit of a lighter version of Tank 7. Smooth and drinkable. Finishes slightly hoppy with a hint of funk and some bitterness. yb
