Convivial Suarez
A-light, opaque gold that continues to bubble, creating very thick white head that lasts at least a few sips. Poured in tulip pint glass
S-very floral and fruity, lemon and hibiscus are very pronounced
T-very malty, barely any hop taste. the lemon balances the sweetness of a saison with a refreshingly crisp finish and lingering aftertaste
M-almost crisp like a champagne, but with the smoothness you would expect from a beer
O-hands down the best saison I’ve ever had

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass. Appearance is reddish pink and fairly opaque with the finger thick head and pretty good retention. Looks like fresh Guyana juice. Smell is hibiscus and tart lemon as expected, guava, hay and a touch of wheat.

Taste follows the nose with a lot more juice coming through than expected. However, it does not over power the Saison-like tart and delicate flavors. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, soft, juicy and creamy up front. There is a nice refreshing finish that brings it all together. Overall, just an incredible beer.
