330 ml bottle into tulip glass, K18A10 bottle code. Pours lightly cloudy golden orange color with a nice 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big lemon, pear, apple, grape, coriander, floral, grass, honey, pepper, and earthy yeast spices. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/peppery notes. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, coriander, bread, honey, pepper, floral, grass, clove, and earthy yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of citrus, light fruits, coriander, bread, honey, floral, pepper, and earthy yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Great balance and complexity of fruity/peppery flavors; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent saison! Great complexity and balance of flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Served in an Allagash fluted glass. (should have poured into a smaller glass. Looks like I cheated myself)
Pours a lightly hazed golden color with a foamy and sudsy white head, along with some patchy and sliding lace.
The first smell reminds me of an evening rain in a dry desert, followed by damp basement. Dry malt, hop flowers, yeast, and a light lemon zest, hint of gin, and whiff of clove all come into play.
The flavors mirror the smells pretty much. A taste of green apples slide forward in the finish.
This is one dry beer. The mouthfeel is slightly raspy at first, but the malt body rolls in late to create a more liquid, gulpable and agreeable swallow.
Nice Saison, but there are local New England varieties of the style that do the trick at less $$.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

From the 11.2 fl. oz. bottle stamped 12:58-K31612. Sampled on November 8, 2013.

The pour is a hazy pale yellow with a short-lived fizzy white head that fades to a ring around the tulip glass.

Aromas run the gamut of Belgian pale malts, apple and other light fruits, pepper and coriander spices, lemon zest, and earthy hops.

Medium body.

The taste begins with most of the elements IO picked up on the nose with the exception of a lingering, biting bitterness that pulls up the rear. Generally mellow and easy to drink.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Golden color with a full three finger thick head with great retention.
Sweet aroma with notes of Cointreau, pineapple, Belgian yeast and pine.
Sweet flavor of oranges, booze, hay malt, lemon jelly, flowers, condiments and oats. A very mild funkiness with dry aftertaste.
Medium body with low carbonation with tiny bubbles. Although it is just 6% abv, alcohol is definitely felt but pleasant.
An interesting Saison, although it has some nice complexity, it is very easy to drink.
