3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy yellow with a big, puffy white head. Major carbonation.
Aroma is orange and lemon. Belgian witbier funk/sweetness, with just a hint of that sour Saison stuff. Perfumey as hell. Also has an actual malt backbone. Grassy and yet with a touch of bready caramel malts. I’m really REALLY impressed with the scent.
Taste is more of a Belgian golden ale, with more of a barley malt than a wheat malt. The taste is a little flatter than the aroma would suggest but still pleasant enough. Doesn’t have the "punch" to it that the aroma has.
Very bubbly and fizzy on the palate; prickly. This is a very summery citrus flavor, light enough for a hot day but not bereft of flavors.

Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice session saison style. Nice complexity, balance, and robustness of yeast, spice, and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

extra points based on the session denomination - this is like a good spiced wit/saison but abbreviated - everything is there - some funky yeast, lemon peel, some pronounced hops, pollen, earthiness and spices but lighter. flavor is light bodied but grainy, spicy, funky, a little citrusy and peppery - nice spicy and yeasty presence with good hops from start to finish - excellent light beer with max flavor - if you think youll like it, you probably will...

Bottle - I’d had this before, but I finally just got a chance to buy a fresh six pack this year. This one poured a hazy straw color with a medium-large white head. Aroma was light wheat notes, sweet light citrus character with some coriander, and pepper notes. Flavor was light, sweet grain, pepper, spice. Pretty enjoyable, light and refreshing. Easy to drink and about perfect for Spring.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light slightly hazy yellow with plenty of fluffy white head. Smells of light coarse grain with a hint of lemon, ever so slight. Taste follows the nose with more grain, which is misleading because this beer is clearer than it tastes.

I’ve been liking this a lot. nice spritzy head with lacing. Very bright, sharp and dry up front and then the peppery spice comes in followed by a bit more herbal character and finishing light and somewhat lemony. A beer in three cohesive parts. And a low ABV keeps it refreshing.
