Tasted on draft at Revolution. Pours cloudy orange with a thick white head. SLightly nutty and sweet aroma with a hint of lemongrass. On the front of the palate there is a hint of citrus hops with a nice sweet roundness. There is also lemongrass with a yeasty finish. The carbonation is very lively with both a medium body and finish. Overall, this beer is great with food, but it is lacking a bit in the complexity department.

Smells nice and spicy with that Spalt hop herbalness to it. Crisp, with floral notes as well. From what I could see (dark bar) it had a nice orange hue to it, cloudy. One thing I like about this beer is the balance of not just hops to malt but also yeast. It was a little sticky and syrupy but that's to be expected with a 7.5'er. I don't think I could drink more that one of these in a setting but, that's not always a bad thing.
I usually don't dig saisons but this one I liked.

I had this on tap into a tasting glass.

The beer pours a cloudy orange with a nice white head, good retention and lacing.

The aroma is light, a little more citrus than you would expect in a saison, with a little wheat, and a slight bitter finish. The server described as super sweet, it was sweet for a saison but not super sweet, nor do I think its a traditional saison.

The taste is also pretty light starting off with some citrus, then finishes with a slight sour bitter finish.

Decent feel, nice carbonation and a fine dry finish.

Overall, pretty good, a sweeter take on a saison.

A - Nice cloudy look to a golden orangish brew with a small white head and a tiny bit of sticking.

S - I would not suspect this is a saison, very yeasty, like a triple more than anything else. Not the grass notes I was expecting, more citrus and fruity.

T - If you gave this to me blind folded, I would have guess Belgian Strong Ale or Tripple. Is there such thing as an Imperial Saison or something? Huge belgian yeast and a fruity citrus with a very dry finish. It's fairly tasty, but not classified right.

M - Dry, medium bodied, nicely carbonated.

D - It's not bad, a little too much with the yeast and sweetness to do tons of.

Served on tap at the brew pub in a tulip glass.

This beer is a cloudy, glowing apricot with a thin layer of white head.

The nose is very close to a hefe. I'm picking out chalky citrus, pine, spicy esters, candied fruits, and a tiny bit of alcohol.

The taste follows the nose. Chalky fruits with hits of pine, esters, and more citrus. This isn't striking me as a saison, but it is tasty. It's refreshing and finishes dry and a little bitter.

The mouthfeel is creamy and close to full with a moderate to low level of carbonation.

A tasty brew for sure, but I think it borders a weird hefe/saison vortex. Worth trying and really easy to put down.
