Wooden Nickel 5th Anniversary Saison

1.0 L swing-top bottle. Thanks to PittBeerGirl for the chance to try this one.
Impressive presentation. Pour yields a hazed orange body with wispy head. Darker than expected. Retention and lace are not huge, but are sufficient.
Nose has an acidic, citrus twang with a touch of mild funk and an organic feel.
Light carbonation dances on the tongue to give a lively presence. Acidity is quite large but in keeping with the style. A bright, lemon and soap taste combines to give a heavier feel than one expects from the style. A little more hop character than I was anticipating….”American Style”. Good depth on the mouthfeel.
Alcohol is present and the beer is quite viscous for the style.
Very tasty, but not a simple, easy drinking Saison, and not “light”. I guess that’s to be expected. More hop character than I wanted or needed but still holds up well. I’m not sure that my score represents how much I really like this, but…
