pintbypint (2706) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2013
12oz draught at Underground. 6.5% abv on the menu here. Gold colour, fairly clear but there might be some haze, not in a well lit spot. White head on top, pretty sticky foam with a tight bead. Aroma has big fruitiness, orangey, some sweetness, yeasty. Taste has more orange and citrus notes, fruity and yeasty, bit of grass and biscuit and grain. Drier end with minerals and yeast notes. Medium body, light mouthfeel. Good Saison, some interesting yeast notes.
