  • Pours a clear pale golden color with a fluffy white one inch head. Good retention on the head with lots of thick sticky lacing.

    The aroma is zesty with lemon and clove and a funky farm house yeast.

    The taste is crisp and clean with light sweetness. Flavors similar to the aroma with lemon and clove and a bready farm house funky yeast and spices. A hint of banana is noticeable as well. Some bitterness in the finish.

    Light body with medium to high carbonation. Dry on the palate.

    Overall, a solid saison ale from New Holland. I am enjoying the crisp clean flavors the are well balanced and fairly bold. A great hot summer day beer! Try one!

  • Just a hint of haziness. Lemon, pepper aroma. Definitely taste wheat, carbonation, but doesn't taste like the aroma.
    Sixth beer of the night, so probably not fair to taste now as it is the only one of this style.
