Smell is lemon zest, Belgian yeast funk, typical saison smell.

Taste is lemon, citrus, and peppercorn with a somewhat dry finish. Just an average saison overall.

I had this beer on draft from a shaker pint. It pours a simple straw color with little head. The nose presents a classic Belgian yeast, but with the balance pushing toward a clove-centric spiciness. The flavor is mild, the spice note is still dominant, but not in a way that diminishes the refreshing nature of the beer. The bubbles were a tad flat for a lively saison, but this is me being nit-picky. Overall, this is a solid sateside saison - refreshing, flavorful, and simple.

Lucid Silo Saison, Lucid Brewing, Minnetonka, MN. Brewed and bottled by Lucid Brewing Company, Minnetonka, MN. Saison-styled Ale. 5.5% ABV.

Thoroughly hazed, dark amber hue, smallish white head. (Starts big, but collapses quickly.)

Aroma: Earthy. Malty. Belgian yeast-y. Just enough sweetness. Rye malt? Very rustic, right on point. I like this.

Taste: Ah! Yum! Tasty Belgian malt, minor hops, spicy & earthy malts. Medium to low body, easy consumability. Much complexity. A different take on a saison than we typically get from our local breweries.

I admit this: When I downed my first bottle from this six-pack I wasn't sure if I like it, so much so that I regretted having 5 more to pass down my gullet. With my second bottle, I like it more and more, wondering what I objected to with the first one. Now that I've finished my final one with these notes, I wish I had another.

Very effervescent. Tasty and yeasty, but tough to have more than one.

A: The beer is hazy golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation along with some small particulates near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a finger high white head that gradually died down and left a thin head covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of spices are present in the nose—pepper seems to stand out in particular—along with strong notes of yeast and faint hints of apricots.
T: The taste generally follows the smell and starts off with some initial flavors of apricots and yeast and is followed by notes of peppery spices that linger through the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: This saison is easy to drink and seems to hit most of the notes you would expect from the style, except for having dryness in the mouthfeel.
