Smells and tastes more like a heffeweisen than a saison, sweet and too fruity for my tastes. Cloudy and orange like one too. More citrus than anything else, and I prefer more earthy and peppery notes in my saisons.

The beer pours a decent bubbly white head. The beer itself is a clear orange with slight yellow notes and is pretty well-filtered. The beer smell has strong hop and malt notes. The hop notes are primarily earth and bitter with a slight hint of citrus. The malts are sweet to balance the hops but a fairly faint in comparison. The smell also has hints of pepper and salt that make the smell smell pretty good. The taste is not as complex as the smell but is still pretty good. The taste has strong hop notes that are earthy and bitter while the malts provide a slight sweetness to dull the hops. The taste also has an ever present tartness that mixes well with the earthiness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with bubbly carbonation but still has a smooth finish. Overall, a very good saison and worth getting again.
