This is the classic saison no doubt. Taste is a bit more bitter than sour, but the beer itself is so easy to drink that the bitterness makes the beer very refreshing. Light body, nice amount of hops, clear and definitively a lambic trace.

Carbonation is also good, medium size bubbles and not overly carbonated.

11.2oz bottle, poured into a tulip

A- pours a bright and hazy golden orange color with massive rocky and foamy head that still sits, five minutes after the pour, eventually leaving some lacing behind upon settling

S- musty basement, belgian yeast, pear and lemon, herbal aromas

T- ripe pear mixes with musty cellar & earthy/herbally notes, slightly sweet mid palate leads to phenolic notes on the finish with a hint of lemon

M- medium body with medium prickly carbonation leads to a smooth mouthfeel and a crisp finish, high drinkability

O- a classic of the style, not as bold as many of the new American versions, but super drinkable

Poured a hay like pale golden hue that is hazed out with a huge rocky snow white head that last all the way down glass leaving blankets of lacing as consumed.

Wonderful faint funk with a peppery hint that finishes with a candy sweet nose.

Easily approachable funk with peppery notes a yeasty subtle flavor that brings some pineapple like candy that goes down like honey dew vine water.

Quenching dry easy to drink brew well worth finding a good example.

Cork was dated 2/13 with NO skunky oxidized hop flavors or aromas. LOVED it!

A - golden hue, lightly hazy, with a nice amount of fluffy white head.

S - on the nose I get citrus, and a little farmhouse funk.

T - citrus, hay, a little grass, and funk with citrus.

M - smooth, yet there is enough substance to it to make it a little chewy.

O - one of the better saisons I've had. I highly recommend trying this if you have not already.
