Had this on tap in 12oz snifter. Smell is sweet, fruity, and dry. First thing I notice with the taste is belgian yeast twang that of what you'd get in a belgian tripel. The yeast calms down as it warms up and develops a nice spice/pepper flavor which pairs nicely with the citrus/pineapple/bright fruit flavors . Overall this is a really nice saison with the refreshing fruity characteristics that is making me start to enjoy the style alot more. The funky yeast can be the hardest part of enjoying this style, but the yeast here mellows out nicely, so I 'd definitely recommend this to people who are on the fence for the style. (89/100)
