A-Pours a mostly clear, golden orange color. Head is frothy and well sized. It leaves lots of lace.

S-Saison spices, pale fruits along with lemons. Chalky yeast. Impressive aroma for a Table Beer; it's got plenty of power.

T-Belgian spice isn't overpowering but it does dominate the flavor. Some lemon, pear, apple. A bit of grass. A bit funky here and there. Finishes with tartness that is really uplifting.

M-Light, crisp and mostly refreshing but the yeast flavors did catch up to me after a few sips. The tartness nullifies most of the other issues I didn't love.

O-A light bodied Belgian aimed at sessionability. It doesn't sacrifice much flavor in order to be so light, too. Really enjoyed the design and the semi-lactic, tart finish is a great way to reinvigorate the palate.

After a recent revisit to this beer at their brewpub what I found totally blew me away. The most flavorful 4.2% beer I have ever had. Simply amazing!!!
