awesome saison with a light taste, smooth mouthfeel, sweet smell and light lacing.

Would recommend if you want a light saison that refreshes.

It's a very attractive beer. Murky, bright golden with a fluffy white head. Decent head retention, minimal lacing. It has a very acidic aroma. Lemon and vinegar, some pepper and herbal hops as well. I'm not really detecting any of that signature saison "funk".
The taste seems, well, watered down. There is definitely some lemon that wants to pop through, but it stays subdued and gradually builds up to a grassy and slightly bitter mid palate. The finish does show some bright notes of citrus and citrus peel. Very interesting progression of flavors. It has a watery mouth feel with slightly prickly carbonation. Refreshing.
Overall: enjoyable, recommended.

From Merriam Webster

Standard :
3 :something established by authority, custom, or general consent as a model or example :criterion <quite slow by today's standards>
4 :something set up and established by authority as a rule for the measure of quantity, weight, extent, value, or quality

The name is appropriate, because this beer is unremarkable in a very good way. It's not thicker or tarter or hoppier or funkier. It's not anythinger. It's not afraid to be just a good balanced beer.
