A - Poured out a hazy, orange color with a one-finger, off-white head of foam. It left some sudsy trails of lace on the glass.
S - It smelled fruity but not like most saisons.
T - Fruity and sweet with some yeasty/spicy bite.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.
O - This is okay. A nice attempt at an ale and a very sessionable brew.

The body is a nice golden yellow with a spare, flat white head. The aroma is an interesting mix of slightly tart fruit and berries with a good mix of freshly mowed grass and some cereal grains. Peppery and spicy flavor with light malt flavors in the background; slightly metallic character. Feel comes across light and watery with a prominent fizziness on the tongue; crisp and dry finish.
The overall taste is the saving grace with this offering. I personally like the warm, spicy flavor and just wish that the feel was a little more solid. Worth a try...
