A: Cloudy pale gold with a nice head of foam stacked on top of the beer, dense and creamy.
S: Highly fruity aroma with some light clove notes.
T: Definitely on the fruity end of Belgian yeasts, this is packed with ripe grape and pear notes. Phenols are fairly light, as is hop bitterness. Somewhat sweet finish.
M: Lots of carbonation, as expected.

Saison is a pretty open style, but I generally expect more phenols as well as more hops. All the best examples have that.

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: A hazy burnt straw colored body. A white head disappears leaving only a ring with light spots of lacing.

Aroma: Very sugary sweet, yeast dominates, banana peel, fruits.

Taste: A tart opening leads to a grainy and yeasty body. Some banana is present. A somewhat tart finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry.

Overall: I just bought a single bottle of this, and I'm glad. It's a fine brew, but I wouldn't want this very often.
