Poured from the bottle into my trusty DFH Tulip... Did I mention I LOVE this beer glass?

A - T&T pours a clear (?) straw gold, showing a slick one-finger head, that fades slowly, leaving a decent amount of lacing. The carbonation is highly visible, and never-ending, cascading upwards from the bottom of the glass, aiding in head-retention, and pushing the yummy aromas up towards your face.

S - Gobs of herbal tones greet the nose, as they should, considering this IS a Saison.
Hints of grass, bready yeast, white sage, and thyme jump out of the glass, tickling your sinuses. There's just a hint of tomato greens in there as well... Mmm-Hmm.

T - The palate follows the nose, with yeasty esters, sage, and a nice minerality tying the whole tasty mess together. There are hints of pineapple, and mango, which can be expected from the Mosaic hops. (Which, as a brewer, are my FAVORITE as of late... It seems the trend is catching.) There is an underlying sweetness that could be attributed to the malt profile, but I feel is derived from the application of Mosaic as an Aroma/Finishing hop. (Possibly even in small amounts as a dry-hop addition.)

M - A wonderful, prickly carbonation runs across the tongue, but does not overpower.
My favorite feature of this beer is the insane amount of refreshing drinkability it shows.
It doesn't overpower. It doesn't underwhelm.

O - As far as the style is concerned, it makes me damned proud to say that THIS BEER, is from Texas! (And especially in a market saturated with breweries "attempting" Belgian styles.) Crisp, refreshing, and superbly drinkable, Wim Bens and the fine folks at Lakewood knocked it out of the park on this one. This is a beer you can look forward to after a long day, or a short one, and it would be easily at home with all types of food pairings. Personally, I can't wait to try it against some hot-as-hell chicken wings with bleu cheese. Don't pass this one up, people.

Cheers!!!

From 12oz bottle dated 3/2/16... About a month old.

Look has clear, bright pale body with thin white head that quickly dissipated.

Smells earthy, with hints of tropical fruits.

Taste is fruity, herbally, and rather malty. Great balance.

Feel is light to medium body, good carbonation and slightly sticky finish. Nice and sweet, crisp and refreshing.

Overall, this is a well made and very easy to drink saison. Will be drinking more of this!
