1-liter growler poured into a wicked weed snifter. The brew appears a clear copper with yellowish green highlights around the edges. An off-white cap rests atop fasing leaving spotty lace.

The smell is green and leafy with a vegetative quality. Some alcohol indication is also evident but there is no yeast derived notes to be found which is strange for a beer classified as a saison (unless french saison yeast was used.)

The taste is boozy and somewhat fruity with very mild yeast ester and bitterness with rindy hop flavors quickly transitioning to green yeastiness and vegetative hop quality. This is very dry and lingering with fruity pulp that does an OK job hiding the vegetative aspects.

This is a medium to light bodied offering that is very dried out with a minimal yeast impact to the nose but very strange almost off in flavor. The alcohol was quite noticeable and collectively I think this brew misses the mark.
