Bottle from Ball Square.
Pours a really clear Medium golden color with a huge bubbly white head that is continually fed by a steady stream of carb bubbles. Earthy and floral hops dominate the aroma with a bit of bready yeasty funk and hints of pepper and spice rounding out the nose. The flavor is a yeasty bready affair with plenty of spice to cut through it all. Light floral earthy hop flavor with hints of melon like fruit. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a tart bubbly mouthfeel. Another Saison this time a little hoppy. This one is drinkable, not my favorite from them, but good just the same.

Champagne-corked wine bottle served in pint glass. Batch number 001. Cloudy orange in color with intense cabronation and a massive white head. Subtle yeast-fresh aroma.

Flavor is quite delicate, with sour citrus fruit notes and a suggestion of wheaty/graininess. Surprisingly, it works well with the heavy carbonation. And for an American take on farmhouse ale I am very pleased with how gentle the sourness/funkiness is. Not bad at all, though I'm guessing this particular bottle would have been better when it was fresher.

Pours a medium slightly hazy amber, couple inches of tannish head.

Smells of lemon, citrus peel, spicy hops, some floral or grassy character.

Taste is happier than expected, pretty hop forward with floral and lemony hop character, maybe a bit of other zesty fruit, maybe some grape even, some farmhouse yeast. Fairly bright. This actually tastes a lot like my most recent batch of homebrew which was another hoppy saison.

Nicely carbonated and pretty, I dunno, sharp? mouthfeel. Between the carb and the light body and the hoppiness this is a nicely refreshing beer.

Nice hoppy saison.

7.5/10
