This is not a Saison. It is the same beer as St. Sebastiaan Golden with a unique bottle.

Appearance: Pale hazy golden color with hues of orange beneath a quickly fading white head. Lots of carbonation and visible sediment (expected from a naturally carbonated beer).

Aroma: Not a lot of nose. There is a faint sweet caramel scent and what smells like cotton candy.

Taste: Not much flavor here. A bit of a cider character interlaced with yeast flavor. A very watered down light caramel flavor.

Mouthfeel: It is a very light bodied beer that is extremely drinkable for it's ABV.

Overall: It was pretty average. If you are a bottle collector or a fan of St. Sebastiaan's Golden, you will want to pick this up just for the collectable nature of the bottle. The beer does a good job of keeping a very low profile on flavor but without enough nuance to make it interesting. (872 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a straw color with a white head, from a really cool ceramic swing top bottle.

S: Citrus in the nose, along with typical saison spiciness (cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg).

T: Dominant flavor is orange, with some very slight grassy notes, as well as cardamom, nutmeg, typical saison spiciness.

M: Medium-light bodied, average carbonation for a saison.

O: An excellent example of the saison style, definitely worth a try. I'm surprised this isn't on here. I see it all the time at bevmo. This was my introduction to the saison style, and I'm surprised my notes are as detailed as they are, given that it was probably one of my first couple hundred beers. (660 characters)
