12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 2-3 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Incredible appearance. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and light-moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of yeast spiciness and slight yeast tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, dry, and lightly creamy/grainy mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.1%. Overall this is an excellent saison. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
