22 oz bomber. This saison is up to par. It pours a nice hazy golden color. Earthy undertone with a slight hop presence. The ABV is a huge plus on this beer.

such a big fan of this style, and this one is right on par. Very true to Belgian-style which I think most don’t appreciate. Nice haze and head to it with a great nose.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber, bottle conditioned pours golden liquid and finishes off with a slight white head. The Belgian yeast, as expected was very present but not overly strong like many farmhouse ales tend to be. Initial taste was semi sweet followed by tropical fruit notes and finished fairly dry. This beer had a medium body and overall a excellent saison to share amongst those who can appreciate.
