My Bottom Line:
Airy and slender, this Saison shares plenty of hay and flowers alongside precise tropical fruit leading to a spicy (white pepper) and coniferous finish.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A wavy head of foam decorates the misty straw blond.
-This is a nicely balanced blend of Saison yeast and New World hop character.
-This is characterful while remaining quenching.
-Unripe bananas are found within.
-The prickly bubbles and dry mouthfeel make for great drinkability.
Bottle and on tap at Luppolo 12, Roma.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is not a golden ale properly, as it is bottom-fermented, but rather a robust lager with dry hopping; overall a pleasant drink even if a bit lacking in character.
