3.81/5 rDev -1%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip.
A: a pale gold with some cloudiness, there was a small one finger head with good retention.
S: yeast, spices and fruits come through. The first two are prominent, the latter more subtle.
T: I still can't put my finger on the initial taste. Perhaps my palate is not developed enough to distinguish it exactly. It is nice. I would say it is close to cardamon or ginger, but not quite. This beer is spice forward in my opinion.
M: light with medium carbonation, very easy drinking.
O: a nice saison, its crisp and refreshing. I could see it being an easy summer beer. But it lacks something that other saisons seem to have. I can't quite put my finger on it, but perhaps it's just that it seems to much like a wheat beer to me.

served from a 341ml bottle to a tulip
A: Yellow orange color. When yeast is poured in it provides a nice cloudiness. Small one finger head that died down pretty fast and left very little lacing.
S: A degree of sourness is available. Coriander and citrus are also there.
T: Very refreshing beer. The coriander and citrus in the aroma is leading the taste. A little bit of clove is around too. Pleasantly spicy. Bitterness and hop profile is fairly low. Balance is appropriate and well done overall. A lot of this beers character comes from its yeastiness and spices.
M: Smooth drinking. Not extremely carbonated like some of the other Belgian styles. Very drinkable.
O: Pretty good beer overall. Very refreshing and crisp, some of the qualities that make a good traditional saison. I could see my self drinking a few of these on the porch at the end of a hot day and I probably will seeing as I bought a few more and a 750ml to share.
