750 ml bottle poured into a chalice.

Pours a hazy gold with a two finger white head with great retention leaving patchy lacing. Aromas of lemon, yeast, spice and some grass. Vanilla, melon, spices-corriander, sweet orange and floral hop flavors blend nicely. High carbonation, medium body with a dry spicy finish. A great beer to pair with food or enjoy on its own.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a simple glass tumbler. Gentle hand. No clear date on the bottle. Enjoyed this many times, but never reviewed.

A: Cloudy, pale yellow with a faint tint of green. Towering 3+ fingers of rocky, white head. Good retention. Light lacing.

S: Inviting, mild Belgian yeast spice. Coriander. Light hay. Faint floral notes. Lemon. Noble-type hops.

T: A rustic, lightly musty spice opens with the development of a balancing hop bitterness. A bit of fruit and tartness add some depth. Fairly dry finish. Light alcohol presence.

M: Moderately high carbonation with a moderate body. Drinks nicely despite a solid effervescence.

O: Refreshing and easy drinking saison with a deceptively stout ABV, but no arguments here. Good balance. Warrants the regular revisits I throw its way.
