The rocky, persistent white head of this beer throws off huge, delicious notes of lemon, orange peel, biscuit, black pepper and coriander. These notes persist through the flavor where the piney and citrusy hop-forward balance and dry finish amplify a lemon tartness. The lemon, wheat, and coriander notes are prominent enough to evoke a Belgian Witbier. This beer's dry finish, low astringency, and 6+% ABV place it firmly on the higher-end of the saison style. It will pair amazingly with bright salads and seafood.
