A: large white foamny head on a golden body. Nice lacing.

S: clove, musty plae malts, subtle citrus sweetness and mild corriander,

T: breads and mild yeast presence with nice herbal and earthy notes. Mild lemon sweetness and spice without tart or tangy flavors.

M: high carbonation and light body.

Overall: A nice standard saison. It isn't expecitional in any one way but it represents the style very well.

Bottle: Poured a hazy lightly dirty yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light funky yeast notes with light rustic malt with a subtle sour finish. Taste is also a mix between some light funky notes with some light tart notes and some light rustic malt. Light residual sugar is also discernable. Body is quite full with great bottle conditioning and good carbonation. Not the most complex example of the style but well brewed for something that is most likely brewed on a very large scale.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A real soft fluffy white head on creation, very bright and white, settles real nicely on to a gorgeous lemon and dark buttery gold body. Nice pinhead sized bubbles in the head also. Body is slightly dull but really glowing. Very nice looking beer.

Real nice baked bread action on this, white crisp flour, some slight butter, dry yeast sense, very nice.

Taste is a nice mix of fruit sweetness and dry bread. Good rich mouthfeel and very dry finish on the aftertaste, playfully carbonated without taking much away from the palate. Orange and tangerine seems to come through with a nice citrus quality, and an almost floral sense.

Overall a real refreshing and nice saison. Hardly booze either at 7.3 percent too.
