Fresh, sweet orange peel with a touch of lemon zest and a bit of Belgian “funk” are typical in any well made Saison. The beer is a somewhat hazy pale, light orange with a firm white foam stand that sticks on the beer. The flavor is citrus, made even more complex with hints of grape and pear. There is a fair level of spicy notes which seem to be grains of paradise or perhaps coriander. But there’s also an earthiness to the beer, some of that distinctly Belgian “barnyard” character. Spritzy and effervescent, the texture of the beer brings all of these flavors into balance. A very well made Saison.
