look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle served in a wine glass

Appearance: hazy gold and very bubbly

Nose: fresh fruit, yeast, classic Belgian yeast, coriander, tropical fruit

Taste: tropical fruit, yeast, bready and fresh, the ample bubbles lift all the flavors off the tongue and make for a great mouth feel. Slight hops bitterness in the finish but not enough to distract from the greatness of this beer.

Overall: I really enjoyed this Saison. It's part of a 4 pack so I'm cellaring the rest to see what changes.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter. The beer is a cloudy orange/gold with a slightly off-white head that dissipates quickly.

The aroma is of funk and sweet candy.

The taste follows the aroma but with the funk slightly underplayed. The aftertaste lingers as leather and a slight astringency.

The carbonation is a bit coarser than expected. The beer itself has a good body.

I like this beer quite a bit and hope to be able to find it locally.
