3.71/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head that fades quickly, leaving a thin lace in its trace.

Smell: Fruity and floral, with lemon, grass, and some green apple. A bit of Belgian yeast as well.

Taste: Lingering sweetness with some apple, lemon, and a touch of graininess. Doesn't go overboard with yeastiness and is pleasant and refreshing.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with good carbonation and a nice lingering finish. Smooth and easy drinking.

Overall: Pretty solid saison and another good beer from NOLA. This brewery has yet to let me down in anything I've had, good job!

Serving type: on-tap

Had this one at the source while visiting New Orleans for Cantillon Zwanze Day! Served from tap into a NOLA shaker. Poured a golden yellow-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, banana, earth, spice, and fruit. The flavor was of sweet malt, grain, fruit, banana, earth, and spice. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. For the style this one was almost spot-on. The flavor was the standout on this one as it was quite robust and inviting due to its nice balance of things going on. The aroma fell a little short of the flavor, but was still quite nice. Definitely worth your time if you get the chance.

Poured from tap into pint glass at Lagers in Metarie, LA. Pours a hazy murky copper hay color with thick foam - looks nice. Good aromas of citrus and some floral notes. Flavors of floral hop and citrus with sweetness and malt. Its not as dry as a saison should be, so it kind of drinks like a wheaty/saisony pale ale...its slightly bitter but sweet at the same time. Its good, not great and I guess wortha try if you see it - especially if you are not from NOLA - well I cant get NOLA at home in NY...
