Poured (or should I say the beer expoded for the bottle) a hazy light amber color with massive white puffy, chunky head. Champagne-like carbonation bubble strem to the top. Nice lacy coating. Smell is malty, peppery, spicy. banana-like. Taste follows through with a firm spice, fruity, malty texture. Good creamy mouthfeel. Very drinkable and very enjoyable.

A: Pours a nice bright golden orange color. Provides a thick white foam head with sufficient lacing.

S: Plenty of spice and yeast up front. There is some suble fruityness that comes through in the way of peaches or necterines.

T: A yeasty and spicy beer, with some nice citrus fruit undertones. There is a slight hop bitterness present as well.

M: A very dry and sweet taste on the palate, if that is possible.

D: This is a very nice Saison that should be tried. Not overly complex but quite tasty.

Finally a Slyfox brew that I can enjoy. This beer poured out as a really nice clear golden yellow with a fizzy white head and that doesn't leave much lacing. The smell is a little on the muted side but there are some fresh grains on the nose. The taste is very floral and hoppy, there is a nice sweet malt finish to it and is pretty refreshing. The mouthfeel is light and sharp, very crisp feeling. Overall it's a pretty damn good beer. Glad I had it!
