look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle (dated 2013/2/7) into a stemmed tulip glass on 2013/6/10

A: Light straw in color pouring to a bit meringue-like head. No lacing to speak of. A bit cloudy but style appropriate.

S: A nice farm nose: grassy and yeast and a bit spicy. Very Belgian! A bit of malt in there.

T: All those typical Belgian notes, yeast, bread/buscuits. Lemon and bit of pepper. A clean dry finish.

M: A light-medium body (surprising for 7.3%); medium-high carbonation.

O: A great, widely available saison! Very clean and fresh, very drinkable!

A - Beautiful cloudy, light straw color with the foamiest meringue white head that started at the middle of my pint glass and create a beautiful crown at the top.

S - bread, cloves, banana, yeast, slight sulphur smell

T -Clove and banana, maybe a hint of tropical fruit.

M - Bright and refreshing with a banana clove aftertaste lingering on the tongue.

O - Overall I enjoyed this ale quite a bit. It's a wonderfully refreshing summer brew that is light and doesn't weigh heavy on the tongue.
