Pours a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma is relatively subdued. Little bit of funkiness and typical Saison aroma. The flavor is where this beer really shines. Absolutely exquisite says on with the perfect amount of tartness to balance it out and add that punch to each sip. Chardonnay notes come through very nicely. Mouth feel is as you would expect for a beer of this style. Overall, this may be the very best Saison I've ever had

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a side project long stem tulip. Thanks Ryan for sharing this.

Pours a hazy orange body with a two finger white head that reduces to leave a layer of white foam and little lacing.

Aromas of hay and grain, green apple and a little spices.

On the tongue is tart citrus, green apple, white wine and oak on the finish, dry finish

Batch #1. Poured a hazed golden yellow color with a bubbly, white head of foam. It smelled funky with strong lemon notes. Nice sour lemon taste with a good dose of acidity.
