this saison had a bright yellow pour with hints of gold and orange with a bit of haze (the ale got hazier as I poured towards the bottom of the bottle), the glass had a large, white fluffy head that receded to a thick cover and ring that stuck to the sides of the glass, there was nice spots and rings of lacing on the glass, the bottom of the bottle had a loose layer of brown sediment,
there were aromas of grass, hay and floral hops with light malt, citrus, light orange fruit, faint wild flower and herbs with faint yeast and earth / floral spices, and just a hint of fruit and bread sweetness on the nose,
it had flavors of grass and dusty hops with light malt and bread, light fruit with faint spice, very little sweetness,
and the finish was dry with a light bitterness, this drink finished pretty dry,
the mouth feel was light and creamy, and it had average to lively carbonation,
this beer was a nice drink, a saison with grassy hops, this ale resembled the Saison Dupont with more hops that are grassy and dried the palate after the finish, a great Summer beer.

Taste is bitter dry hops with orange peel and zest along with a strong fizzy carbonation that turns dry with biscuit yeast and funk farmhouse. Palate is thin very fizzy and drying.
