This pours a white gold with nice foam.
Peppery with an orange floral note.
Estery and a touch of funk.

I guess I don’t have much more to add to this review right now. This sure ain’t poetry.
Beer reviews can be like that sometimes.

A - Pours a fairly clear golden-yellow color with a big finger of frothy white head. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some nice lace.

S - Aroma is a mix of coriander, Belgian yeast, spices, black pepper, grains, lemon and some other citrus smells and floral hops.

T - Starts off with some coriander, other spices and some other Belgian yeast flavors with some grains and some black pepper. Through the middle some lemon and other citrus flavors come through with some floral hop flavor and some more farmhouse flavor. The finish is a mix of Belgian yeast flavors with some coriander, black pepper, sweet grains, and some floral hops and lemon.

M - Medium bodied with heavy carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and spicy finish.

D - Very drinkable. Very nice Sasion. Really nice carbonation level and the flavors are really nicely balanced throughout.

Very nice looking saison. Bright pale yellow liquid topped with a huge white head. Rather hazy.

The aroma has lots of spice and yeast. Right off the bat, it seems lively and bright. Malt is very light, and the beer is clearly well attenuated. Lemons, hay, peppercorns and light coriander. The spicing is relatively subtle but still adds a lot of complexity. Lots of clean saison yeast aroma.

The taste is quite dry. The malt is fresh and light. More lemons and peppery spice on the tongue. Earthy yeast finish with a little bite from the hops and spices. Carbonation is lively. The mouthfeel is fairly creamy but there are still plenty of prickly little bubbles. Fun to drink.

Another really nice beer from HenHouse. I'm excited to try their Golden Ale and anything else from this brewery. An impressive start.

Pours a gorgeous hazy sunny golden color with a huge fluffy white head. It's stunning.

The aroma is lightly bready with black pepper, yeast, earth, spices, mild hay aroma, with hints of herbs. And lemon peel.

Predominantly, it's a musky yeast note, with some pepper, light spices, some light sweet bread crust, earthy, and lightly sweet.

Upper light in body, with a good bit of carbonation lending a crisp feel, and a slight drying finish.

I personally prefer a lighter, crisper, refreshing Saison and this is a nice one!
