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.
