L: Pours hazy gold under a sudsy white 1” foam collar that provides good lace. S: The aromas are spicy and fruity with over ripe fruit and banana and a lightly smoky phenolic odor hiding in the background. T: Fruity spice, orange, citrus, coriander, over ripe fruit, some pepper, and an assertive bitter finish. F: Medium high carbonation and medium body. O: A refreshing saison with a little something odd going on.

Aroma is yeast, lemons, citrus, spices and a slightly out of place mustiness. The flavor is lemons, citrus, spices, thick/sticky and a tart/tangy finish.

Not my cupo tea. It was overly floral and perfume like. Way to much in the way of herbs and flowers

Not a huge fan of Saisons but I actually enjoyed this one! Light body, you get little bits of the herbs and spices so it's not over seasoned (I guess you can say lol) it has more of a wheat beer finish. In all, it's a chill session saison that you can totally eat dinner with (I suggest apricot baked chicken on a bed Orzo Pasta!)
