UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy light golden with a white head. Light weight saison with flavors of lemon, pepper and water. Yes water. Very simple and light saison thatís not to bad but is a bit too on the watery side for this guy.
7-23-13: Tried this again and like it alot better. Yes it is lightweight and somewhat watery but for 4.5 really not bad and hitting the spot tonight. This time Iím getting alot of pear and clove notes. Same beer. Different day. Different beer.

Pours a semi clear light golden yellow with a small head. Nose is grass and wild outdoor spices. Taste is lemony, yeasty and full of spice. Obviously, very drinkable, but it is a session beer. Different but one time only. Finish is spicy as well, with lingering citrus. Quaff Score 6 / 10
