3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to chalice. Murky orange-gold with minimal, mostly dissipating head. Relaxed, pleasant nose with hints of citrus. Light body and carbonation. Mild taste with some orange notes and a little hoppy bitterness. Slightly medicinal finish with some subtle black pepper. Not nearly as aggressive as many Saisons, I really like this laid-back interpretation. Welcome, Prairie.
