This poured a darker yellow/orange color with an off white head. Aroma was a good amount of spices, some yeasty notes too. Flavor was a bit sweet for a saison, light light flowery funk, and yeast. OK.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with a big, fluffy eggshell white head and plenty of visible sediment. Aroma of farmhouse funk, grass, lighter spices like coriander and clove, bready malts, and mild tropical fruits. Flavor of grass, straw, herbs, bready malts, funk, pears, peppery yeast, and a bit of banana. Medium-bodied, with a good amount of soft carbonation and a bready mouthfeel and dry finish. Man, I had a lot of great saisons over DLD weekend for some reason. Good beer.
