A: The pour is a slightly hazed golden straw color with a massive white head that clings to the glass. S: A very nice earthy aroma to this beer providing some grass and hay notes. Lightly sweet malts with a bit of a cracker thing going on. A touch of fruitiness, but certainly some lemon zest that is very pleasing. T: This one starts out with a very light tartness (of the lemon variety). Grass, hay, and leather give this beer a fantastic earthy character and really dry it out. A hint of of spice (white pepper) and a bready malt base completes this one. M: The body is medium with plenty of carbonation and a very dry finish. D: Just fantastic stuff. Glad to have an extra one of these sitting at home.

"A nice, bright saison, with a nice spice (rye) and hop balance, and a definitely dry brett thing going on, especially in the aroma, though the dryness in the aftertaste is apparent as well. Very enjoyable."
