Hazy bright blonde with piles of loose white froth. 4
Lovely barny, floral, fresh, bagel dough nose. 4.5
Clean pils malt, cidery bite, honey, then cut grass, a touch of lemon peel, slight farmyard-ish washed cheese rind, and herbal end. 4.25
Fizzy, clean, light. 4


Bangin’. Touch of sour, rather than white pepper phenols, keeps it clean. Otherwise, every nook of the classic style. Could go toe to toe with Beaux Vieux. 4.5

A: The beer is crystal clear golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that gradually died down, leaving some specks of bubbles on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of fruity yeast are present in the nose along with notes of grainy malts.
T: The taste starts off with flavors of fruity yeast—pears seem to stand out in particular—along with notes of earthy yeast and notes of grainy malts.
M: It feels a bit shy of being medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This saison is easy to drink and has some refreshing properties. The fruity yeast aromas and flavors are a lot different compared to the spicy flavors you typically get. This might not be preferred by someone who likes traditional saisons, but I found it to be quite enjoyable, especially for a beer during the summer months.

The beer comes in a rich golden color.

The beer offers up a Brett character up front of artificial banana and hay. There's a light biscuity malt in the middle. The beer offers lots of pear juice fruity flavors and then dries off very clean. A touch of hop bitterness.
