4.3/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Slightly hazy golden-yellow with a large, fizzy white foam that settles to a persistent, very thin blanket with a thick ring.

Smell is world class. Very balanced levels of funk, citrus and spice bring in varying degrees of barnyard hay and straw, peppercorn, wild herbs and flowers, lemon, spiced orange marmalade, and a fruity, bright white wine or even champagne oak.

Taste confidently follows suit, but is a little less explosive than the nose suggests it might be. I'm getting tart lemon, orange, spiced but lightly wild herbal funk and a little oak, ending with a faint hint of licorice or allspice.

Body is medium, crisp and nicely carbonated, with a semi-dry finish that just glides down way too easily. I could have used about 20 more bottles of this. No wonder they're so successful if this is their base for so many of their one-offs.

Blend #19 July 2015 vintage

Blend #19 bottled 7/15/2015

Semi sweet with slight sharp peppery yeast aftertaste. Very well ballanced yet dry Saison. One of their best offerings
