This beer is bangin', yo.

I drank a taster, then bought a growler. I downed most of it, my stepmom enjoyed a glass as well.

Pours a mostly golden yellow, 2 fingers of head that dissapears. Nice lacing for a saison.

Smell is fruity, with a phenolic yeast note. Taste follows, orange peel, peppercorn, a zest/spice from the yeast. Sweet like rosewater, yeah, let's call it rosewater.

This beer is light enough on the tongue, low ABV, no sign of it, and a joy to drink.

This beer is bangin', yo. Blew through a growler like 'Whoa'.

Straight from the tank into a growler, which is pretty awesome in and of itself. Appearance is hazy, golden and milky-yellow. Lots of bubbles, and a two finger foamy head. Smells like hops, sour, sweet, sulfur, wheat. Taste is hoppy, very light fruit notes, fizzy but not champagne-like. Tad thin, really smooth, very sessionable.

Beautiful beer, dark gold with a hint of copper, huge white head with nice retention, tons of lacing.

Lemongrass and slight banana aroma, some Belgian yeast, wet blanket.

Slightly sweet take on a Saison, with lemongrass, light citrus peel, grass, candi sugar, wheat, hay, light pepper, tobacco, and Belgian yeast.

Semi-dry, pleasantly alive with a mild sting. Cloying sweet aftertaste.

This is a nice Saison, on the sweet side, in the style of Hennepin. Very drinkable, and a nice ABV for the style.

Poured from tap into pint glass at Gingerman sono. Pours a hazy straw golden thick foam and a bit of lacing. Hay and fruity hop aromas. Very mild hay and yeasty fruity funk flavors. Easy drinker and nice mellow balance but not my favorite saison. Deff worth a try though.
