7/1...orange gold cloudy hazy with heavy white foam. Orange nose, coriander nose too. Funked citrus flavors, light spices. Clean mouthfeel. Light carbonation. Woodsy. Nice.

Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a semi-golden yellow color with a two finger white foamy head that glistened and slid off at a pretty slow pace. Fast rising carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. Some stringy lace.
The aroma had a wonderful blend of sweet pear, honeydew, red apples, sweet champagne, lemongrass, freshly cut grassy hop bookends, a light white pepper, and an ample amount of sweet earthy to semi-woody sweetness.
The flavor took all of the previously mentioned aromas to collide with a little bit of orange sweet pulp to citrusy sweet pulp. Smooth to dry sort of citrusy pulpy aftertaste with just an ever so slight of that lemongrass and white pepper.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a pretty good sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, pretty nice saison, one of those dryer types, with barely any breadiness, and even less Belgian yeastiness, but somehow I didn't mind. I wonder if it's because it's as damn humid here in Vermont right now, not sure, but I'd still have this again.
