On tap at the brewpub. So-so saison, certainly displaying white pepper, coriander, and yeast. Not a lot of inviting spices, however. Quaffable. Blonde coloured body.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
[ Tap ][ 5oz ][ O’Briens SD ][ $2 ][ Shooter Tumbler ][ 1.31.15 ]
>> Pours hazy white straw with thick 360 lacing. Nose is an odd mix of fennel, licorice, lemon balm, allspice, dried orange peel. Taste begins with a squashy hoppy note, honeydew rind, super crisp and dry pils malt base gives a similar feel really to the STS Pils. Somewhat soapy. Light acid in background, lime squeeze. Malt base is an insanely crisp, crackery, sharp one. Crushable type of saison with no esters, sugar, alcohol, or other silly things that can kill a saison experience.
