From tap to taster glass at Due South tasting room on 6/2/12
*From notes

A: Hazy and slightly cloudy 24k golden in hue. A minor .75 finger white head and a small collar rims the glass.

S: Fresh herbs, a bit of sage and a pretty agressive hop presence. Really lovely stuff.

T: Herbaceous up front. There's not a really big yeast kick. Instead I find a luscious, juicy hop bite that I'm nothing if not in love with. It features a lemony backbone, and it rides from mid to finish.

M: Feel is pretty clean and crisp. Solid bubbles, medium to light body. Top notch.

O: This is a shockingly delicious saison, or should I say a saison/IPA hybrid (or at least that's how I see it). I've never come across a Farmhouse Ale like this, and I'm head over heels for this delicious and badass Southern Florida treat. Supremely well done, Due South.

Review from memory. Definitely my favorite of the beer flight. Beer has a light golden appearance and spicy herbal aroma. Taste is light and clean with some peppery lemon zest and crisp hop bitterness.
