12 oz. bottle

Pours cloudy hazy pale yellow-gold with a creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like tart lemony citrus, lime, orange, grapefruit, some banana, clove, funky peppercorn medley, vanilla, bready crackery pale malts, with dank earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like tart lemony citrus, orange, grapefruit, lime, banana, clove, vanilla, funky peppercorn spice, crackery pale malts, with dank earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and smooth with moderate low carbonation. Overall a real nice hoppy farmhouse ale.

so im not a huge saison fan but giving this a go. pours a dirty yellow color with dishsoap head. nose is typical pear and apple with funk. got some lime peel in there as well. taste is light bodied and fizzy lime and funky pear taste with yeast giving way to a nice ending earthy bitterness with lime juice ending a dry finish. this beer was a good saison and it seems like the body gets more full as it progresses through the palate. probably won't revisit this cause I'm not a huge saison fan but this was a good beer.

This beer pours a slightly hazy yellow with a medium sized head. The aroma is a little ctirusy, with some lemon and lime zest, as well as bubblegum, hay, lemongrass, and underripe banana.The flavor is a bit less bright than the aroma, with straw, pine, melon rind, and a vague herbal quality. The mouthfeel is light, with classically exuberant saison carbonation. Overall this is a well done beer, and I would perhaps have done better to taste with a meal, as it seems very food friendly. However, I found it a touch too grassy and herbal, just not quite to my taste.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a pale yellow color and a cloudy texture. There was a half inch of foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. Very good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of citrus, light tropical fruit, yeast, and spices.

T: Tasted of a lot of tropical fruit (passion fruit, mango), banana, citrus (lemon, in particular), Belgian yeast, pepper, cloves, coriander, and a light bready quality. A much fruitier flavor than you find with most saisons, but this isn't a bad thing. It's sweet, lively, and fairly complex.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a vibrant finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: Standard is a solidly made, easy to drink saison. Drinkable and perfect for the summer.

Pours a pale straw with over a finger of white head. The nose is yeasty and slightly soapy. The flavor has the classic peppery essence but the promised hoppiness is fairly muted.
