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.
