Had this for the first time as a small sample and couldn't wait to try it again so I picked up a growler first chance I got.
Pours like a light hefeweizen with a small head and plenty of carbonation. Smell has a nice light mixture of sweet citrus, banana, and a little saison farmhouse. Taste is very refreshing with a sweet character which mimics the smell. Mouthfeel is light with a good carbonation.
Overall this is a very solid beer. I would have preferred just a little heavier body, but as is it is a very refreshing drink on a hot summer day. It is a bit too easy to keep drinking this one.

12oz can to Libbey tulip
A – Hazy yet kind of clear; very translucent. A light amber with some yellow-green. Gives off a nice goldenish glow when backlit.
S – A nice sweet, bready Belgian smell, with a hint of green apple and straw. Some orange and honeydew from the Belgian scent, along with the bready, sugary goodness.
T – Taste follows smell closely. It fades quicker than I’d like. It tastes very much like a saison, and there is added hop flavor on the backend (in addition to the flavors that match the smell). I’m getting a sweet lemon upfront, then a bit of Belgian sweet bread and apple, but not as much as I’d like, and some spicy grass on the backend from the hops. As it warms, the last flavor lingers longer, but the middle Belgian flavor fails to come out.
M – A heavy-light body that slightly clings to the tongue. Finish is both wet and dry depending on location in the mouth. Moving outward from the tongue: dry, semi-wet, semi-dry. The carbonation spikes in the middle, which I don’t like. It lends itself to the refreshingness of the beer, but then goes a bit too far.
D – The smell is great, except for the slight off-smells. The taste follows the smell, but doesn’t express the Belgian character well enough, and fades a bit fast. The mouthfeel is refreshing, yet peaks a little too hard.
4.25, 4, 3.5, 3.5, 3.75; 3.7.
