3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden with a big yeast ester nose with hay and barn funk with a little bit of citrusy/golden grain sweetness. Flavor is big and bold with a lot of gold grain sweetness and a touch of booze, with a yeasty eccentricity and a touch of light fruit flavors. Ends a little doughy, but sweet and bold and complex, yet approachable.

Tap at De Steeg. By far their best beer. Pours cloudy and golden. Aroma of hay, wheat, and spice. Very wet and rich, farmhouse and almost like a wheat bread. Very cereal. Finishes slightly dry. Really nice.

Taste is musty, citrusy, peppery, phenolic, biscuit, straw, lemon peel, and esters with a lightly spicy finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. This is a really well-crafted saison, very balanced and highly drinkable.
