Golden pour - nice inch head - off-white. Nose of fresh cut hay and yeast.

Carbonic entry, again, hay, grass, yeast and straw. Nice bite to this beer. Flavors are upfront. Fresh. A nice food companion. I tasted this with crackers and sharp cheese - held up quite well.

A very well done saison - a bit pedestrian compared to belgian syle (I was just there), but hits on all charachteristics, fresh flavors and decent depth.

12oz bottle. This beer pours a very light bodied and bright pear juice gold in color with a highly carbonated and active two finger bright white head. The nose is light and yeasty. It has nice white orchard fruit character, like sweet apple and pear. The flavors follow suit. It has a light, slightly sweet fresh fruitiness to pair with the light and off dry Belgian yeast. It's very well rounded and has great flavor. It drinks light in body with a little too much carbonation for a saison, in my opinion, but it really doesn't detract from the beer at all. This is a light, easy drinking saison and you don't detect any of the 7.7% at all. I can't believe I waited so long to try it.

A: Clean pine-wood color with and beautiful rich 1-2 finger white head that coats the glass with heavy lacing

S: Pine-y sharp with esters. Not my favorite kind of smell, though it could be appropriate for this style.

T/M: Hoppy, sharp, citrus-y and pine-y (sensing a theme here). Unexpected body, leaving a nice coating and a slight astringency.

O: though this is not my usual choice of beer, it is surprisingly satisfying. I would drink it again if I was looking for a lighter kind of ale with character. Even now I am still curious about it and would definitely try it again.
