White wine, orange & clementine, oak, grass and fresh crushed leaves. Mild spice and musty notes from their house yeast - white peppery and bright. Finishes dry but somewhat rounded due to medium body. Another F&M Saison winner.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Slightly hazy orange. Medium white head and a very thin collar.

Smell - Oak. Light lemon and some wine/grape-like fruitiness.

Taste - Tart. Lots of orange. White wine, but not too strong. Oak. Some sweetness lingers along with the tart finish.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation. Medium light body.

Overall - Quite nice. Finish is a little messy and I'd like a bit more carbonation, though.

Pour is transparent golden amber with a medium amount of tight white head and some retention. Nose is super bright, tons of tangerine, lightly tart, soft peppery saison yeast, and light oakiness. Flavor is also extremely bright, not quite as deep or integrated as the nose. The fruity tangerines are the most dominant flavor, light oakiness, still some saison yeast, gently tart finish. Everything isn't quite as pulled together as the nose but the elements are still there. Body is light, a touch syrupy, soft carb, dry finish.

Golden yellow in color. Cloudy in appearance. White wine barrels integrated well.. Crisp, tart granny smith apples. Short finish, lower carb. This is good.
