4.5/5  rDev +9.2%

A: Pours a cloudy yellow/orange color. A dense white head rises to over two finger with impressive lace all the way down. This is a looker.
S: Earthy, peppery yeast up front and center. Fruity esters like banana, and some spicy clove. Lemon rind and finishes with a grassy bitterness. Spot on for a traditional Saison.
T: Again, that earthy, spicy and fruity yeast is up front and very welcoming. Clove and black pepper on the tongue. Banana, lemon rind and white grapes that gives this just a slight tartness. As this warms some bread and biscuit malts come through. A light lingering grassy bitterness. Lovely.
M/D: A light body that is perfectly carbonated. Effervescent, crisp, beautifully clean and dry. A treat to drink, the bottle is gone in no time. This is great for the hot Texas weather, but I can enjoy this year round.

A spot on traditional Saison. That perfect Belgian yeast shines, and works so well with the grassy hops and biscuit malts. An instant favorite of mine, and I need to see if some more are on the shelves ASAP.

Sunny yellow and hazy. Dense foam that leaves 3D lacing.

Not a strong scent but a hint of lemon and funk.

Champaign like - dry and grapey. A little banana sweetness especially as it warms.

Moderate carbonation. This is a substantial beer that coats the tongue.

A very good beer that falls short of being great. A little too subtle, could have used another level of flavor. There are hints of tartness, funk, and peppery spice, but I would prefer if any of those were more prominent. Nevertheless, worth a try.

Served on-tap at Hunger N Thirst.

A - Pours slightly murky orange with a nice one finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving thin sheets of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of bready yeast, black pepper, banana, dash of fruit and some earthy hops. A traditional Belgian saison for sure.

T - Starts off with some mild black pepper spice quickly being joined by the bready malt and fruity yeast and finally the banana and light earthy hop bitterness. Finish is a little sweet with plenty of chewiness, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, effervescent feel with only a faint hint of booze as it warms up.

O - A nice example of a traditional Belgian saison. It has just enough to keep me coming back for more.

On-tap 7/12/2014 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI served in a goblet glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wild Belgian yeast, wheat, esters, light caramelized malts, citrus and spices.

T: The taste starts out with a touch of estery sourness that is followed by mildly sweet flavors of citrus, bananas and spices. Then some breadiness comes in from wild Belgian yeast and a thin malt character. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is tart and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, very good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a long time.
