Bottle, sent by Adam. Thanks!
A: Cloudy gold with a huge white head. Just enormous.

T: Tart. sweet. and a touch bitter.
M: Foamy carbonation, light body, no alcohol.
O: A pretty nice saison. Easy drinking all around with the complexity to match.

Pours hazy yellow, with a fluffy white head. Aromas of lemon, orange, citrus, flowers. Taste is really nice, with sour and hoppy notes at first, lemon and orange, followed by some spices and herbal, flowery notes, and some honey and sugar at the back. Aftertaste is excellent, medium sour. Light body, really refreshing and easy-to-drink, with medium carbonation.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and others, sent by JulienHuxley-- thanks! A near gusher, this is one lively pour! Hazy golden body with a generous white head that laces thickly as it recedes. Lovely tart, funky profile, with rustic yeast character and gentle honey undertones without heaviness or sweetness. Tart, dry, and exceptionally drinkable despite its complexity. Fantastic. Thanks again Julien!
