Tart and refreshing. Light on the tongue, but wonderfully substantial. Nose is all morning dew and apple, with just a tough of breadiness. The wheat-bread and biscuit notes mix on the tongue with a honey-ish sweetness and a crisp finish. Very little in the spice department. Utterly drinkable.

This is a really nice basic saison. It hits all the notes you expect from the style. Nice carbonation, nice funkiness, and easy to drink. It didn''t blow me away, but was a really nice refreshing drink and would be perfect for a hot summer day.

Batch 15 (Feb 2014). This has greatly improved since fresh. The funk and sour have really come out and the citrus has fallen back a little bit to create what I think is the perfect balance.
