Really nice saison...from an American (large) low-priced craft brewer. Good stuff!

I recently had "La Fin Du Monde" on tap...and honestly, I think this beer compares favorably to it...though yes, they are different styles--still a saison is similar to a tripple. No, it's not as good, but...hey, it's less than $9 for a sixer.

Has an earthy, almost sour beer taste--like a homebrew, but fresh and refreshing--definitely a classic saison. I can guarantee, if this beer were from Belgium, in a fancy bottle...it would be rated quite high. As it is, it's a bargain!

Try it friends, I think you'll love it.
