Hazy Golden-Orange pour with big glistening white head. Nose is spicey-pepper or ginger. Lots of fruity yeast notes, slight citrus, light bodied. active carbonation. quick bitter finish. An average saison. Agree with other rater that it is almost more of a wit.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Toad in the Hole. Cloudy orange with medium melting head. Pepper, overripe fruit, and a squidge of sulfur. Tasty, beery, and coherent with soft sweet malts, light Belgian esters, and pleasant phenolics. Fairly dextrinous and low carbonation for style; a little yeast bite is welcomed to go away. I taste this as if it was a witbier and criticisms ease!
