A: The beer is slightly hazy light straw yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high bright white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderately strong aromas of Belgian yeast are present in the nose along with notes of peppery spices.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of Belgian yeast along with notes of peppery spices—coriander in particular—and hints of grainy malts. The spices are most notable towards the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be a relatively good representation of the style and also quite drinkable.

A 355ml can with a BB of Oct 2013 (presumed). A little out of date, but hopefully still in good order. Acquired recently from the Brewdog online shop. An American take on a classic Belgian style.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. A bright golden hue with plentiful carbonation and faint floating sediment. Produces a ridiculously massive head of creamy white foam with decent retention; this slowly reduces to a thick surface layer. Slight lacing. Aroma of fruity saison yeast with hints of clove, banana, bubblegum, phenolics, coriander, spice, faint malt and earthiness. Rounded and delicious.

Tastes of fruity yeast esters and spice, with a bone-dry finish. Notes of clove, banana, mild bubblegum, coriander, spice, faint apricot, a twinge of grainy malt and earthy yeast. Highly attenuated, followed by a subtle, herbal bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with spritzy carbonation and good body for the style. Light but well defined. Mildly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of fruity yeast, spice and earthiness.

Good stuff - a solid take on the style. Looks lovely in the glass, while the aroma and flavour are replete with fruity, spicy yeast notes. Decent body. Perhaps the only thing missing is conditioning with live yeast as in Belgium - I reckon it would add subtle depth to the flavour and texture. However this is a trivial point; nicely done and very tasty. Well worth sampling if you're a saison fan.

12 oz can. date towards the bottom of the can is 12/21/13. no indication of a best before or canned on.

A: a slight hazy on a straw yellow body. head is very fluffy and bright white. retention is great . clouds of lacing.

S: very fruity. a little bit of bubblegum. pears. a mild black pepper. being this heavy on the fruit brings a lot of sweetness.

T: a light, fruity saision. not barny or funky. a mild grain in the finish that dissipates into dryness. fruity throughout the drink. light fruit. pears similar to the nose. good fermentation flavor.

M: good carb, good mouth. pretty spritzy.

D: not too shabby. no off flavors, good fermentation flavor. not having my socks blown off, but a very drinkable, tasty saison.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Cloudy yellow with a bright white head. Funky barnyard of a nose with grainy and medicinal notes.

Full mouth feel but medium bodied with brisk carbonation. Delicate honeysuckle and apple flavors on the tip of the tongue. Clean medicinal flavors on the mid palate, some band aid, along with a sweet graininess, finishes clean with just enough spicy hop (or just spice) to balance things out leaving a faint sweetness in the mouth. Clean refreshing with a good amount of complexity. And it comes in a can!
