This brew is a straw colored brew with a thin and white head. Hazy and cloudy...almost milky in complexion. The aroma. is grassy, with a light fruit and distant malt note. A bit of earth and spice. Fresh in aroma and taste....refreshing and balanced. Fresh-scented hops and orange peel notes. Medium in body and a clean finish. Not bad.

a very clean copper pour with 2 fingers of bright white head which dissipated slowly - great retention. smells of lemongrass, bell peppers, and wheat. not too impressed on the nose. the flavor is typical saison.. a bit on the bitter side. very peppery, lots of yeast flavor, earthy dirt-like bitterness, bready, lemongrass. the bitterness makes it pretty rough on the palate. medium in body with high carbonation.

this is a decent saison. i think personally, it would be a bit better if it weren't so bitter. when combined with the high carbonation, the bitterness just smashes the palate with a dirt like taste that makes this beer kind of hard to drink.

Pours amber with a large head.
Nose shows funky saison yeast, soft bready malt and wheat along with faint spicy hops. Inviting.
Some bready malt as a flavour along with some mineral content contributing to the very dry finish.
Carbonations seems a bit excessive.

Pours a pretty clear orange hue. Great head retention! Tiny bubbles.

Nose is super grassy and citrusy. Lemongrass. Earthy spice. Chamomile. Floral.

Earthy, yeasty spice upfront. Lemon pepper and grass. Sugary sweet, honeysuckle. Finish is pretty dry though. Fairly complex.

Spritzy mouthfeel, like sprite soda. Pretty refreshing. Medium body.

Overall, very characterful saison. I don't think this is the freshest bottle so not a lot of hoppiness comes through, but that's okay. Perfect for a hot summer day. Would drink this again.
