Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a half-pint chalice.

A: Slightly hazy, medium golden color with less than one finger of diminishing white foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass.

S: A mixture of esters, crisp phenolics, and Belgian aromatic malt.

T: Begins dry, with strong esters and bready malt. Acidity is restrained into the middle where malt becomes more crisp and crackery. Herbaceous hops emerge in the finish with a thread of savory cooking spices--notably cumin.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, slightly syrupy on the palate, with low carbonation.

D/O: A fairly straight-forward saison, whose dry flavor is undermined somewhat by the syrupy texture. Advertised flavors are well-integrated, practically hidden, although other herbal and metabolite flavors fall within appropriate bounds.
