Strong, musty aroma of cheese funk, chardonnay, coriander and lemon. Appears a bright golden yellow with no foam whatsoever. Taste is balanced coriander, wheat, lemon, biscuit and subtle white wine. Overall, very fresh coriander and wheat tastes with a nice white wine twist. A rating. Nice stuff.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 On draft at the Barrelworks – reviewed from notes (10 Nov 13). Aroma is surprisingly peach forward with some citrus and white grape must. Some BA saisons tend to be lemon forward but this has a nice tropical and stone fruit aroma to mix with the doughy, hay like yeast. There is a slight lactic quality as well. Pours pale hazy yellow with an insane huge cloud-like head. Took a few minutes to settle down before taking some sips. Taste is mellow lemon, grain, some must, white wine, peach, with light funk. Body is light with carbonation on the higher side. The aftertaste has some tannic quality. Overall a really nice wine/tropical saison with light funk and lighter sour quality. Impressive!
