Pours a straw golden body that is heavily hazy. Nice fluffy white head that sticks around a bit. Aroma is pepper, lemon, bready malt, typical saison aroma. Flavor has some light tartness (unlikely from lactic bacteria) and a continuation of the pepper from the nose with some creamy wheat based mouthfeel. Not as crisp and dry as a traditional saison, but nice none the less!

What a beautiful beer. Bready, fruity, tons of pepper, nice funk. Hoppy for a saison, but that's what makes it special. What more could you ask for.

Best saison I’ve ever had. Excellent all around, and I wish I could have bought more. Crisp and clean.

L -- Pours a clear straw colored body with a dense, three-finger white head produced with moderately aerated pour. Definitely less retention than traditional saisons, but still pretty decent. Good lacing as well
S -- Pilsner malts, sundried tomato, floral notes, doughy yeast, lemon, a touch of citrus, honey, and rosemary
T -- Quite sweet honey-like malt profile. Also getting yeast, garden-herb hoppiness, and a touch of lemon
F -- The sweetness makes the character a little cloying. Fluffy, medium carb, medium mouthfeel
O -- The sweetness could definitely be turned down a notch, but otherwise a pretty interesting take on a saison. It's The Alchemist, so of course there's some hop character, yet it doesn't overwhelm

Look: Straw, hazy with two inch head. Low carbonation.
Smell: Lemon, pepper, and banana.
Taste: Lemon, pepper, strawberries, real refreshing.
Mouthfeel: Crisp easy drinking.
Overall: A good saison. I enjoy higher alcohol saisons more than lower ones.

Generally I am not a saison guy, however of all saisons I have tried this is one of the better options. the best thing about this saison is the clean aftertaste.
