look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Golden but clear. Great carbonation. Decent head

Smell: Spicy and herbal. Difficult to pick one overwhelming scent. Hints of citrus.

Taste: An initial hit of strong carbonation followed by the floral taste of the hops, but not too "hoppy". Complex herbal taste, slight citrus, and great balance..

Mouthfeel: Full body but not weighty. Refreshing due to the blend of citrus and carbonation. Light enough to drink quickly but complex enough to slow down.

Overall: My first review, my first saison, and easily my favorite beer to date. The balance in this beer is fantastic. Those who are turned off by hops can wait a second until the complexity of the beer comes out. The citrus isn't the primary taste, yet it isn't too herbal. I really enjoy this beer.

Served in a chilled glass poured from a bottle.

This beer was poured out of a 12 ounce bottle. Served cool.

The body is Lemondrop yellow with a very thick White head

Smells like cloves and hay

Very herbal taste somewhat bitter, cloves and medicinal herbs. Very slight boozy finish

Well carbonated

This is a very nice. I would certainly have again

A - nice light golden color with so much carbonation that the beer almost looked like champagne.

S - great slightly fruity smell that filled the immediate area almost as soon as the bottle was open.

T - a well balanced brew with a citrus flavor upfront. The flavor left on the palate I found to be almost cider-like.

M - very crisp and light due to the high carbonation; also dry, again very reminiscent of cider/champagne.

O - very good beer. I would suggest this during spring and summer. I bought this for a snowy Maine night and I think my choice might have been better with something a bit heavier.
