750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours golden/copper with a thin, white head. Aroma of light fruits, bread, and some floral hops. Flavor about the same, with the above-average carbonation and fruitiness combining to make this a unique beer. Average texture. A pretty good saison.

Bottle. Very hazy rusty green yellow color with a generous pure white frothy head. Spice, citrus, hay, yeast, and some herbal qualities in the aroma. Grassy, herbal, spicy, bit of light fruit, lemon zest, and nicely earthy. Lighter to medium body with very vibrant carbonation...little slick. Nice brew.
