750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a hazy orange with ample off-white head and lively carbonation. Smells yeasty, spicy, hoppy, and earthy. Tastes like it smells with a nice, dry mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

Hell of a unique Saison. Pours a brigh6 sparkly orange and gold. Tons of majorly sticky foamy white head. The nose is heavily accented by a beauty hop blend with tons of citrus and musty dusty saison yeast. Great crisp and heavy wheat malt with the finish crisp and clean. A bit sweet, tons of heavy esters and mustiness. Glorious brew
