Tap pour has an orange toast color. Aroma is orangey with floral notes. This is very much a saison. The saison and wild yeasts blend well and the dry hopping helps to balance the sweetness and dry the finish. Unique and delicate flavors here.

From the bottle direct from Portland to So Cal. Pours a ruby golden, bit of head. A beautiful saison, with just enough fruit on the nose to hide the hops, until you take a sip that is. A perfect balance of hops and tartness and a bit effervescent. A really stellar beer, not like anything you've had. Go find it.
