Growler was poured into a large tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale yellow orange color with some clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Belgian yeast, spicy, pilsner malts, vanilla, green apple, esters, and slight citrus notes.

Taste: Same as above with slight bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light to medium bodied, a little dry, some bitterness, and a little chewy.

Overall: Pretty nice saison from a brewery in the woods. We'll be visiting you guys again in the future.

The beer comes in a golden color.

The flavor offers citrus zest, a spicy yeast in the middle, light bready malts, a dry finish hints of herbaceous hops, lively carbonation. The beer drinks easily for the style without an abundance of sweetness or malts.
