Bottle, 11/19/2014. Pours a hazy wheat orange color, fluffy white head, decent retention with a small ring of lacing. Aroma is mild citrus light pear, baked cereal grains, touch of yeast and grass finishing with subtle fruit. Taste is similar, with clean, light fruity sweetness, touch of lemon, straw and spicy yeast. Light body, round and smooth. Quite pleasant.

sethdude (702) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Pours gold with a beautiful halo of foam with rocky little islands. Aroma is funky and odd- in a good way: bret funk, manure, soil, floral notes, and dust. Flavor is initially pilsner malt whcih quickly warms into mild funk, burlap, Gruyere, dandelions, and black pepper. Very interesting take on the style, less spicy and more hoppy than most. Quite nice.

Pretty much as advertised: you can definitely taste the pilsner in it, but the Saison flavors rob the beer of the crispness I enjoy in a good pilsner without achieving the complexity of a good Saison. A bit muddled.
