This beer pours a hazy golden color with a large bright white head. The head receeds at a moderate pace and leaves nothing behind.

The aroma is decent. There is some sweet candi sugar, yeast, and fruity aromas. I dig it.

The taste is ok. There are some nice fruity flavors as well as a bit of yeast. The pale malt provides a bit of bread as well. The hop profile provides a very light bitterness which is balanced by a touch of sweetness.

The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and nicely efforvescent with tiny bubbles that provide a good tingle.

Overall it's a nice beer. Definitely a nice showing for a saison. I would consider this a good starting point for a Belgian style ale for those interested in ale's of that type.

Pours a nice golden color with tons of white head and lacing.

Smell is bready with some citrus (orange and lemons) a little banana.

Taste is sweet with a little grapefruit wang to it. There is a mild pleasant bitterness.

Lots of thick carbonation.

Overall this is very nice. Drinkable and refreshing. Will definitely look for this again. Saison is becoming one of my favorite styles.
