On tap at TH. Another really killer saison from these folks, who are dialed into a tight range of styles which they execute terrifically. Cloudy orange/brown body with medium carbonation. Subtle oakiness in the nose, with dry hops and some spice, yeast notes too. Very inviting and understated. Hay, citrus, and the faintest vanilla in the taste, distinctive and delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy straw-orange body, large white head, spotty lacing. Light citrus and crackery malts in the nose give way to a stronger flavor profile showing off citric notes, grass, a light oaky vanilla, some bretty must and earth. Medium bodied with moderate carbonations and a super dry finish. Fairly intense flavor profile at only 4.5% ABV. Interesting.
