12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance: Pours a somewhat hazy golden with a big white head that dissipates after about a minute.

Aroma: Smells of lemon, citrus, pepper and some faint herbaceous notes. Smells appealing. The nose is very forward but in no way overpowering or funky.

Taste: This is a really tasty saison. It starts out with lemon and citrus and then finishes dry and slightly peppery. Those grassy, herbaceous notes are also in there on both ends.

Mouthfeel: The body is just right. Just about spot-on for a saison.

Overall: A pretty terrific domestic saison. It hits all the notes - great aroma, nice citrus and lemon flavor, appealing dry pepper finish. Would drink again.
