12 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer quickly. It is a hazy golden straw yellow with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Pepper spiciness, vanilla, pilsner malts, apple, pear, powdery yeast, and a

Taste: Same as above. Nice and traditional and no one flavor overpowers the other.

Mouthfeel: A bit smooth, medium to high carbonation, a little dry, medium bodied, a little spicy, and a little chewy.

Overall: Pretty awesome saison. It's been awhile, but I'll enjoy more in the near future.
