Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into a chalice. Served cool.

Pours a gold yellow body with a hazy reddish hue. Off white head that is the proper thickness for the style.

Nice aromas. Immediately smelling mown grass and clay. Some lemon and coriander notes as well.

Herbal notes for taste. Some lemon and very quenching. Well balanced.

Mouthfeel is light and not over the top carbonation.

I think that this is a spot on saison. A saison the way it was meant to be. Very quenching, easy drinking, flavors that are subdued but present. Not a bland beer in the least.

I've pretty much given up on reviewing beers, but this one inspired me.

Pours a perfect, slightly cloudy yellow with a billowing white head. It leaves something that's more akin to webbing than "lacing"...must be loaded with hops. A little whiff confirms that--crisp, floral, grassy hops abound. Light pilsner malt aroma with slight yeasty hints. The taste is also quite hoppy, but in a mostly aromatic sense. That's not to say it isn't bitter--it is--but it's a dry, refreshing bitterness. Very light sweetness from the malts at the start, but it finishes without any hint of it; very well attenuated. Substantial body for a Saison with just the right amount of carbonation.
