An awesome saison. Pours a straw yellow with a big frothy head. Nose is yeast, lemon peel, coriander, peppery spice and some funk. Flavor is same lemon and pepper goodness with some brett presence. Finish is lingering citrus bitter. An exemplar of the style and VERY refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of citrus, sweet fruits and some spices. Golden yellow color, hazy, with a frothy white head. Nice sweet malty flavors up front, mixed with citrus, and heavy spices, and finishes with a loud bitterness that follows the beer down your throat nicely. Stronger than your average saison but nicely done.

On tap - Pours hazy golden with a big creamy white head. Nose has a lot of hefe to it--lots of bubble gum, clove, and sweet yeast, but also has a dry, doughy, mineral quality to it. The taste is similar, with a well-integrated smoothness to it. It’s sweet up front but dries near the finish, making it extremely drinkable--dangerous for 7.7%. Creamy and smooth in the mouth. Excellent stuff--can’t believe it’s taken me this long to rate it.

This is a great, great american Saison. The yeast is nice and musky over sweet, light, wheaty flavors that really stand out in a country bereft of mindblowing saisons.
The head gets a little absurd on this beer though; it can be very dense with very small bubbles and the damn thing does not dissolve for a while.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Effervescent thick foamy 3" white head with good lacing; even hazy pale gold amber liquid. Well-balanced taste with complex spicy and fruity yeast, malt sweetness and pleasant bitterness. Very smooth and dry clean finish. Very enjoyable and surprisingly easy to drink as I was expecting a more assertive (and perhaps cloying) beer for a rustic farmhouse ale.
