Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Cloudy and deep yellow, with a small head A lace sheet as I drain the cup. A farmhouse aroma. A good malting, that makes so drinkable this four grain saison. Smooth drinker, a thick mouthfeel. A little rye edge. A good orange hop. Very drinkable.

This beer poured out as a hazy yellow color with a nice looking white head on top. The retention and lacing on this beer was moderate. The smell of the beer was decent, some fresh citrus notes on the nose for the most part. The taste of the beer was lemony upfront with a nice malt backbone and in the finish the hay flavors kind of came out a little. The mouthfeel of this beer was smooth, gently carbonated and easy to drink. Overall it's decent Saison in my opinion.

On-tap, 8oz pour

A light yellow, straw color with a bubbly bone white cap. Some lines of lace.

The aroma is grassy, earthy, and grainy with a burst of lemons. Pepper and candied sugar round out the nose.

Follows the nose. A burst of lemons up front with an earthy graininess and some damp grass. A touch of sugar and pepper in the finish.

Crisp and fairly light. Easy drinking. Moderate carbonation that works well for the style.

A nice saison that is different than most. Multiple grains yield an interesting profile that works extremely well with the delicate, rustic flavors of lemon, spice, and sugar.
