5/5  rDev +28.5%

Clean and crisp with complex peppercorn notes balanced with a nice yeast aroma. Super tasty, had a 750ml from a liquor store for $9.99

Poured from a can into a frosty mug

A- honey-gold, with a nice haze you'd hope for from belgian yeast. Lively effervescence and a half-inch head which settles down rather quickly, disappointingly.

S- almost like a heffeweizen, banana and clove prominent, but layered with an acidic funkiness underneath which becomes more prominent as the beer warms

T- Earthy barnyard up front, some clove, and a nice tingle from the pepper

F- dry, dry, dry. Like the Brös said, keeps you coming back for the next sip. Balanced carbonation and medium to light body.

O- saison's easily one of my favorite spring/summer styles, and this is easily one of my favorite expressions of it (alongside Boulevard Tank 7 and Brooklyn Sorachi Ace). Had it alongside a nice green curry and couldn't have been happier with how it complemented the food!

Had on tap at Nana's Irish Pub. Poured a hazey honey color. Fruit, honey, and began year in the strong, excellent aroma. Outstanding taste, you get the spice that I missed in the aroma. Full and creamy with lingering spice, not unpleasant in the linger. Outstanding brew, can't wait to try more of theirs.
