Golden orange pour with a dense white head and sticky lacing. Nose is pretty heavy on the the spice and yeast aromas. Fairly peppery, hints of grass, grapefruit, and lemon zest. Nice bready note, too. The flavor has a dry finish but lots of dough and bread up front. Good pepper character, yeast, grass, grapefruit peel, and mild pine bitterness. Light pineapple, lemon zest, and a hint of pear. Interesting beer. Decent saison, but not much of an IPA.
