Picked up a 750 ml bottle at the Hilton Head Island Whole Foods this past Sunday for $14.99. No bottling date visible.

Beer poured golden with a beautiful white head with the initial pour.

Nose is crackers, pepper, and hints of lemon.

Taste follows the nose. Classic saison in the true sense with the pepper and lemon notes shining through beautifully on top of pale malt base.

Mouthfeel is heavier than hoped but smooth.

Overall except for the mouthfeel this brewer has nailed the style stone cold! I enjoyed the indulgence!

A: pours with a light, soapy, 1 to 2 finger head, and a clear, straw gold to amber body
S: mostly spice, with some traces of hay
T: bready malt, and a spciy hop character with a hint of lemon, honestly the label describes this beer pretty well
M: dry...yeah dry, with a subtle tartness
O: a credit to the style, well done

I tried this at Odettes in Florence, AL. It poured a slightly hazy yellow with fizzy white head that left a spotty lace. The scent had floral notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was medium in body with big carbonation. Overall it was a great saison.
