Draught. Poured orange yellow with thin fast dissipating white head. Little lacing. Fairly flat flavour, a little citrus, a little spice. Lingering spice and floral finish. This beer began and ended well, tho’ it fell off in the middle.

Bottle shared by 321Jeff. Thanks!
The beer is a hazy, straw yellow hue with a couple inches of thick, white head that leaves a thick sheet of lacing on the glass. The aroma brings lemons, spice, grass, fresh celery. The flavor is refreshing with crisp, zesty carbonation. Light floral and citrus notes are quite enjoyable. The feel is light on the palate. Highly drinkable.

(750ml bottle from Bruery Provisions). Pours a cloudy golden color with chunky white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is lemon, wheat and some pepper/spice. Taste is sweet with a little sour. Hmmm. Maybe an infection? Yet, it is tasty.m. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours extremely hazy golden amber color with a 3 finger foamy and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, straw, grass, light funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, bread, pepper, clove, grass, straw, light funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, wheat, bread, pepper, clove, grass, straw, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good flavor robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and prickly mouthfeel that is great. Zero alcohol warming present after the finish as expected for 4.5%. Overall this is an excellent session saison style. All around great balance, complexity, and robustness of flavors for 4.5%; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pour is hazy lemon juice with a frothy, long-lasting white head and great lacing. Lemon peel, citrus, herbal, medicinal, grass, biscuit, and floral hops in the aroma. Taste is herbal, floral, yeasty, light pepper, vanilla, citrus, grass, lemon, and straw with a crisp, dry finish. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Seriously tasty beer for such a low ABV, I would love to be able to get this in quantity for hot Summer days. I wish more brewers would do stuff like this.
