Poured a cloudy/hazy, straw-yellow color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of lemon, yeast and toastiness. It had a nice spicy bite with yeasty notes, lemon and green apple.

another bangin brew from these cats, this one not so sour as most of their others. its a cleaner saison, light in body with a nice juicy dry hopped sort of nose and just a little tartness to it. a nice fairly familiar saison aroma, its not as far out as some of the strange fruited goses and berliners these guys are known for, but its just as well done as most of the others. pale in color and very active from the tap. the nose is great, and this seems dry hopped to me. with the wheaty golden base and the drying yeast, this is really easy drinking. a fresh citrus hop note, a little quick flash of tang to the finish, and a light white wine element from the yeast as well. lighter in body and well carbonated, this is the right feel for the style and a cool beer for summertime. someone told me once that the guy who makes all these beers doesnt even drink beer, which i find hard to believe, because all these are so interesting and well done, it would seem like tasting would be part of the process, but either way, these beers are getting better and better, and this is a nice new one from them!

12oz pour from the tap into a Crane tulip.

Pours a hazy orange with two fingers of white head foaming up top. Head retention is good, with fair lacing. Aroma is banana nut bread, cloves, and spices. The aroma carries some weight, and leans towards the sweet side. Flavor profile is sugary sweet, with notes of banana nut bread, cloves, and yeast spices. Mouth feel is a little fizzy, but otherwise medium-thick and filling. Overall, a delightful saison that does lean more onto the sweet side. Lots going on here.

Reviewed from notes.
