First time trying Karbach's seasonal Saison, a brewery I'm a huge fan of. It isn't the best Saison I've had, but its pretty good. I would buy it again.

This one pours a very attractive and cloudy golden color with a very effervescent thick and bubble head that settles at a moderate rate and leaves almost lacing down the glass.

The nose is very organic with earthy tones that support hints of grass, pine, citrus and breadiness.

The taste is a great balance of rich malt, piney and citrus hops with a grassy and bready finish that matches the nose perfectly.

The mouthfeel is rich and pleasant and just right for the style.

Overall this is a wonderfully done Texas version of the Saison style. They have done a fantastic job here and it is excellent. I highly recommend it, please leave some for me.

12oz canned 12/29/14, poured into a tulip glass

A- pours a hazy pale straw color with a small creamy and foamy white head that has good retention, eventually settling to a film skimming the top

S- spicy and yeasty up front with notes of dried hay, grass, basement must, ripe pear & phenols, classic saison aroma

T- spicy and earthy yeast & wheat flavor follows the aroma up front, fruity notes of green apple, pear & lemon rind. Earthy, grassy and phenolic finish with more spicy yeast on the linger

M- medium body with medium bubbly carbonation leads to a foamy and lively mouthfeel that continues into a dry finish

O- I was very surprised by this saison, it is very well made and rivals some Belgian examples, I'd drink this all summer if it were available to me. I can't believe how low this is rated, it has to be people who don't appreciate the style, because this is spot on
