bottle into pint glass
Appearance- Hazed over and light golden, 2.5 fingers of fluffy head recedes into .5 finger that stays for the duration, thick lacing.

Smell- Citrus, various spices like clove, anise, tropical fruits, yeasty, little funk

Mouthfeel/Taste- Carb is very lively and effervescent, medium/full body but appears lighter due to carb, light sweetness. Flavor follows nose with citrus and tropical fruit, spicy clove and ginger, light bready malts and yeast. Alcohol is almost 8% but well hidden, nearly imperceptible. Finishes fairly dry with faint hop bitterness, maybe a whiff of alcohol.

Overall- Tasty beer, full of big flavor. I really liked the lively carbonation - great mouthfeel on this brew. Crisp. The head is impressively big and fluffy, aromatic. Can't think of anything bad to say, other than I wish it wasn't so expensive!

Ill admit off the bat that I overpoured this (little more foam than I'd like) and I'm not a huge fan of the style. Light in color w white foam. Smell is appealing and complex. Taste many distinct flavors and reminds me of a few belgian ales I have had, still smooth and rich without etoh burn. A very enjoyable beer, might be better on hot summer day vs "winter warmer"

Poured from a 12 oz. into a pint glass

A: Straw colored with a nice white fluffy foam that stuck around and laced half of the glass.

S: Straw, earthiness and some pine... a crips start with a little more on the end.

T: Good clean flavor, bready to a point but also some extracurricular enjoyment.

M: Carbonation was a little high for me, but was a nice solid drinker

O: Great example of a saison for those just testing the craft waters.
