A- turbid honey with a billowy soapy head

S- Musky, crazy cheesy notes, citrus rinds. Smells like a musky old basement filled with lemons. I mean that in the best way possible

T- Musk, wet hay, lemon/orange pith, cornbread like grain notes, slightly sweet. Lemon like tartness that's substantial and really ties everything up in a nice bow for you.

M- creamy, very creamy. Some herbal bitterness. This beer is very very dry but there is a slight sweetness to it. Infinitely drinkable. I could drink buckets of this, if it came in buckets.

O- Maybe the best saison I have ever had. If this is the kind of stuff Swiss farmhands drank daily I'm in the wrong profession. Unbelievably well rounded and utterly perfect beer.

A real gem. Possibly my favorite saison. Clean and crisp with a complex and yet well balanced flavor that features crisp grain flavors with a pleasant background of wood and citrus.

Taste: tart and citrusy at first. Sour and dry with lots of oak flavor in the finish. Lots of wild yeast funk. A great beer if you enjoy saisons and sours. Wish I could buy more.
