Draft at the Brewpub with Pat and Vinny. Pous a clear golden body with nice fluffy, white head which dissipates into spotty lacing. Aroma is light, floral, grassy, some spice, yeast and light wheat. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of grassy, funk, wheat, floral, peppery, citrus, lemon and a touch of honey.

Awesome session table saison. Very refreshing and crisp with peppery spices, wheat, lemon, and some musty sulfuric yeast note(not in an overpowering or bad way if that makes any sense) Loved it.

Served on-tap at the brewery.
A - Pours pale yellow with a nice one finger tall white head leaving spotty streaks of lace down parts of the glass.
S - Smells of must - not overly funky - light fruity notes, dulled citrus, some candied sugar, some peppery spice and a good bit of bready wheat / grain. Nothing over the top here, just a solid saison nose.
T - The flavors closely follow the nose. Starts off with a mix of musty funk and chewy grains quickly giving way to hints of apples, pears and light citric fruit. A nice spice note comes through toward the end of each sip, making me want to come back for more.
M - Nice light flavors with a crisp feel. Some graininess toward the end of each sip but thats about it. Quite refreshing on these hot days we have been having.
O - This is a great classic saison. Unlike others, there is no need to add things to distract from the base when the base is this good. I can tell that this is going to be one of my go to beers at the brewery.
