Blonde and hazy. Aroma has phenols and yeast up front. Phenols and kiwi and yeast....unusual character. Not great but not bad either. Okay saison...definitely new world, and Iím not sure thatís for the best.

In short: A dry and hoppy pale Saison with authentic rusticity. Excellent.
How: Growler 32oz, consumed the day I received it from mcberko, thanks a lot Matt.
The look: Cloudy yellow body topped by a medium white head.
In long: Nose is taking a deep breath in a countryside field, the type clean and soft rustic yeast aroma Iíll never get tired of. Aroma also includes lemongrass, Saaz-ish grassy-spicy hops, lemon zest. In mouth the body feels full yet light. In mouth the very-low-sweetness malt backbone brings a sensation of sun dried wheat and fluffy oat flakes. Also lemon zest, countryside flowers, rustic yeast, dry grassy hops, a certain spiciness with white pepper and others. High attenuation which makes the assertive dry grassy-spicy hops come out even stronger in the finish. An excellent authentic Saison, it may be more hoppy than a classic Belgium Saison but the hopping is not American style, like a classic Belgian Saison with a brewer who went nuts on the hopping. I loved this beer, I love Saisons, I really donít mind when people call me a Saison whore because it sounds like I have sex with a lot of Saisons, and that sounds awesome.

Draft at Chuckís 85th. Super clean, single style saison here. Really nice and grassy with tiny elements of barnyard and aged hops. Perfect summer weather brew!

This saison makes me curious about the super saison. Compared to the little. This one has more vanilla and viscosity to it. It does taste really good but it seems less spicy to me.

On draught at pFriem. Color is cloudy deep yellow, almost like juice. Aroma is tropical tart fruit, light yeast, and hint of sweet malt. Taste is tart pitted and citrus fruits, light spicy yeast, and some grassy hop notes. Refreshingly spicy and tart on the finish.
