I love the feel of this beer. It almost seems like the wet hops give a nice oily tone to things. The saison overall is slightly soapy, but not obnoxiously so. It carries an unfiltered tone to it all, but it works quite well, in my opinion. More an American interpretation as opposed to a rustic Belgian one. Done quite well. I like it.
Too bad it is a one off and the keg is already kicked.

This is Roundabout's Still Summer Saison wet-hopped with Willamette.
Poured into a stemmed tulip: Light gold, transparent body under two fingers of creamy white head that drops to a thick coating & leaves a blanket of lacing.
Hops come through in the aroma with a peppery, leafy green kind of character almost like arugala. Underneath is some lemongrass, nectarine, pretty herbal character. The wet hops really contribute something different here than they would in a typically hop-forward style, & I like it.
Some nectarine & apricot up front, a little sharpness, but then tempered by a soft sweetness & a kind of tea-like dryness. Wondering if there's some rye, as there's a little bit of pretzel-like spiciness.
Mouthfeel is a little sharp up front, but quickly smoothed out & softened. Not as hyper-effervescent as a lot of saisons - that aggressive yeast can be overwhelming, which isn't the case here.
I'm usually not a fan of saisons, but two things that really elevate them for me are dry-hopping & rye, & this definitely has one, if not both of those. I'm a fan of this. Haven't had the regular base saison, but I'm impressed by what's offered here.
