look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Presentation: It was poured from a very cool corked 12.7 oz bottle. The label has a brief description and lists the abv at 7.5% abv.

Appearance: The body has a nice amber color with a very slight haze. Carbonation is also lively and helps support the head. It’s head is creamy, off white in color and long lasting. Lacing coats the glass and slowly slides down the sides of the glass.

Smell: The aroma is full and inviting. It’s has nice fruity and yeasty notes. I get notes of clove, banana and fresh bread.

Taste / Palate: It’s flavor starts with light malt sweetness blended with fruity and bready yeast. I also pick up some light sweet orange notes. This quickly turns dryer as some dry yeasty spice notes and notes from the peppercorns move across the tongue. The finish adds a light touch of floral spice and mild bitterness. The palate feels smooth and creamy and it’s 7.5% abv is well hidden in its flavor profile.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12.7 OZ bottle.
Served in a pint glass.
Amber color, darker than most saisons I've had. Minimal head.
Smell is typical saison with sweetness from the mandarin oranges. Notes of banana.
Taste is caramel, spice, then orange in that order. Very pleasant, would have again.
