look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a cloudy, light-yellow body with minimal head and lace ring down glass. Floral, earthy, spicy yeast smells mainly comprise the aroma. Smooth, slightly sticky with a honey- and yeast-type sweetness with a peppery snap and a bit of floral funk on the finish.

Poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a glossy semi-bright yellow color with a mild transparency about it. I could see carbonation rising at a decent pace. Concave lace trims the sides of the glass nicely.
The aroma had a semi-sweet floral to grassy hop character. Some sweet pine with earthiness. Some lemon cake. Sweet side of peppercorn.
The flavor yields towards the sweet side melding all of the prior mentioned aromas together nicely. Slight aftertaste of lemon cake, peppercorn, and a sweet floral to bright lemon juiciness.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied, perhaps just a tad under with a fair sessionability about it. Good carbonation and ABV. Nice crisp finish of lemon juice, lemon cake and floral hop character.
Overall, very nicely done saison soothing and smooth, quaint and nice! Well worthy of many more pours.

I find this beer to be perfectly constructed. Top to bottom, this is the Claudia Cardinale of Saisons. Light like a newborn, yet peppery bright, and earthy, I’m feeling this one like Dr Phil on a butterfinger.

Yep!

This was definitely a nice beer from the folks at Perennial. Hit all the marks for a really good dry hopped saison... earthy and delicious while bringing the dry hop aspect to the show... it really is a nice beer... that being said....for the $$$ it's not something I will probably pick up again. Over $20 for a 4 pack of a 5.50% saison..... for my budget, it's hard to justify....

16oz can. Poured out a slightly hazy, straw yellow color with a nice sized head of bubbly foam. It smelled of floral notes, apple and pine. Sweet fruity flavor with light caramel and a green apple taste.

BB 3/10/19, consumed 10/27/19

L: Poured golden and slightly opaque with a nice big white head that left some ok lacing.

S: Very nice white wine, grapes, grapefruit citrus, and some flowery notes mixed so well with the funky saison yeast.

T: Follows aroma, just slighty less bright and defined in the fruit notes.

F: Smooth, nice body, great carbonation - terrific feel like you'd expect from this series.

O: Another nice addition to this series. Best way for hop heads to move into some more funky stuff. Prism is probably my favorite change-up to IPAs and pale ales.

3rd in this series from these dudes. if i was smarter on the makings of beer and hops themselves i might have more to say about it all but damn they've tasted solid each time. 16oz can into a tulip, dumped out a nice golden color with a rocky white head that settled to a chunk of suds up top. good lacing going on. nose has a lot of fruits floating around, from citrus to stone fruit, especially peaches. almost reminds me of some of those fruity white wines. hints of saison funk come in and say hello. taste is a nice balance of both, this batch really nails it as far as balance goes between the two hops and the yeasty funk. fruity, earthy and overall just goes down smooth. drinks great, good carbonation and a nice body. the 4 pack disappeared already and i guess perennial will be getting even more of my cash again soon.
