Served from tap in to snifter. Poured a hazy yellow-orange with a one finger off-white head that subsided to a half finger slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, hay, fruit, grain, and spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, nutty, wheat, fruit, grain, and spice. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. The flavor on this one really wasn't too bad for the style but it didn't feel like it was a saison. The nutty note on it really stood out from the rest. Too bad as this one could have actually been nice if there were a little more sweetness going on. Worth trying but doubt I would have a second glass.

Pours a nice lighter amber shade into a large tulip glass with a large blooming white head that left alot of lace as it settled,a few chunkies and floaties at the bottom pour.Aromas of toasted wheat and spiced phenols,nothing out of the ordinary here.Flavors of toasted cereal grain and wheat malt with some light pepper spice and even more mild funk,a bit of citrus-like fruitiness is there as well.Not bad but it's a little predestrian for the style wich isn't a bad thing for me,i like the fact it's not overl "funky",but it lacks more to it.

Served from a bomber purchased at Grapes and Hops (represent!) and poured into my Sam pint glass. Disclaimer: I have no idea what "Royale" denotes and to the best of my knowledge, the only take on this I have had is only labeled "Saison de Aviator," as is the case of the beer being reviewed.

A: Copper. Nice head that dissipated slowly. Streams of sexy CO2 making their way to the top. After a few minutes, yeast can be seen accumulating on the bottom of the glass.

S: Wheat, alcohol, yeast, some non-specific spices.

T: Belgiany? Yeast, wheat, alcohol, malty sweetness, and again with some spices I can't put my finger on.

M: Medium-bodied with medium carbonation.

O: This was always one of my favorite of Aviator's offerings prior to them bottling and I decided to revisit it when I saw it available in a bottle. This isn't a style that I'm overwhelmingly familiar with, but I can say that on a broader scale, this is a satisfying beer. Certainly not a sessioner by ABV determination, but it is fresh and bright and reminiscent of spring.

Growler purchased at Whole Foods

A - copper with a half of an inch of soft, white head that has decent retention. There is a lot of carbonation rising to the top

S - funky yeast, faint coriander, a hint of white grapes

T - yeast, white grapes, faint coriander, alcohol, faintly piny hops, mildly bitter finish

M - crisp, warm, medium bodied

This is a decent representation of the style. The alcohol is a bit intense and slows the drinkability a bit, but overall this is a nice saison.
