12 oz bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a semi-clear, golden, straw color with a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Not much of an aroma at all. I get some faint notes of toasted malt, some floral, barnyard-y aromas of clover, straw, honey-suckle and Belgian yeast. There’s also a touch of caramel, banana and bubblegum.

Taste: The beer tastes ok. There’s some strong flavors of toasted malt, imparting notes of crackers or stale bread, followed by some caramel-like sweetness, some clove, a touch of banana, a touch of bubblegum, a touch of coriander and a touch of sourness at the finish.

Mouthfeel: A little thin, with some decent carbonation. With an ABV of 5.7%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is an ok beer. There’s some decent flavors of toasted malt and caramel-like sweetness, but the touch or sourness at the finish throws it off for me. There are much better Saisons out there, so I’d pass on this one.

Looks like typical American lager but tastes better than Bud or Coors.
