==Introduction==

Thanks to my friend Aaron Mendiola of BeerMetalDude.com for sending me this refreshing brew along with other awesome Tallgrass brewing beers which I have reviewed so far. This time, we bring forth a saison. It is always good to know that Tallgrass is definitely differentiating itself with their different types of brews which I think really helps the brewery grow. So far, every beer I have tried that I have not tried before from them has been amazing. Let’s see if the saison also does wonders, cheers!

Aromas:
Peppercorns, lemon zest, biscuit bread, Stone fruit peach, apricot, hibiscus flowers, waffle cone hints, cane sugar, blonde candi sugar, banana, phenolic notes, clove spice hints, biscuit bread, farmhouse hay, tropical fruit hints and herbal notes.

Flavors:
Stone fruit peach, apricot, sour apples, peppercorns, lemon zest, grapefruit peel, wheat bread, floral, earthy and herbal hops, Tropical fruit mango, honey dew melon, cantaloupe, orange preserves, biscuit bread, farmhouse hay, banana, phenolic notes, clove spice hints, hibiscus flowers, waffle cone hints, cane sugar, blonde candi sugar and Danish cream.

Aftertaste:
Finishing with stone fruits, farmhouse hay, peppercorns, earthy hop notes, clove spice, tropical fruit hints and Belgian candi sugar notes. No alcohol in the taste, pale golden light body, crisp, clean and refreshing mouthfeel and easy to drink.

Overall:
A very delicious saison. It is pretty solid showcasing many of the great flavors that come from saisons but bringing in its twist of things. Not too funky and fruitier and refreshing than other saisons. I think this one would be very appealing to average drinker. Worthy of recommendation.

Anime Corner:
Weiss Schnee from RWBY was chosen in this beer because she fits well with the colors of the label and the theme of the beer. Songbird and the music notes works a Weiss is also a singer. Her white and blue colors pair well with the label as well.
