look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- Very light straw yellow coloration, hazy. Good head, frothy and white.

Smell- Yeast, cat pee.

Taste- Strong Belgian yeast comes through here. Slight barnyard character. Very lemony with some grassy notes. Hint of soapiness. Finishes dry with medium hop character.

Mouthfeel- Highly effervescent carbonation.

Overall a unique and interesting Saison. I'd rank it just behind Tank 7 and Hennepin.
