Clear straw pour. Estery barnyard yeast aromas which continue thru the taste. Ends reasonably clean and dry. Not my favorite, but very on-style for a saison.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy yellow color with a big head & nice lacing on the glass.
Aroma is fruity with some peach & banana. Lightly spicy with a bunch of wet rocks.
The flavor is a touch sweet for my liking, but it’s nicely bitter with some earthy minerality, some orange and peach like hoppiness, a rather intrusive spicy element & a reasonably controlled banana element.
