4.08/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

From a bomber to a tulip, split it with the wife at 45F.

A - Cloudy caramel body, nice white crown with a tilted pour that lasted long into the glass, and laced strong throughout.

S - Grassy, just a little citrusy. Fresh flowers, its so reminiscent of spring.

T - Really nice, better than I expected. Nice flavor profile falling right in line with high quality Belgian ales, plus a little honey flavor. A little sweet white wine in the background.

M - The palate is great, bright and refreshing. The aftertaste is a bit funky and lingering.

O - A pleasant surprise, Saisons are not my favorite but I really enjoyed this one.

3.76/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A: Copper filtered with a lot of carbonation and 2 fingers of off white yellowish head.

S: Fruity orange and spice, black pepper, Belgian yeasts, funkiness, butter, licorice.

T: Light orange creamsicle, a Belgian yeast quality, nail polish remover, some sweet corn on the end.

M: Thin body, lots of foamy carbonation leaving it creamy.

O: Some nice light summery fruity orange qualities, refreshing and light on the palate. Drank July 21, 2014, in Boca Raton. Got in North Carolina.
