I had this in the brewpub on tap. It was served in a tulip glass.

This beer poured a golden coler but the head quickly disappeared and left no lacing to be had.

The smell was of sour grapes and not at all what I expected. I could not get any malt smell because the sourness was overpowering.

Very tart sour taste, low carbonation and not balanced at all. I'm thinking this beer has an infection or the beer lines aren't clean because this is not what I expected in a Saison.

Pours a slightly hazy lemon gold, some white suds and lacing for a head.

Smells of grassy malts and fresh banana esters, coriander, and clove.

Grassy malt and banana esters over clove and citrus sweetness with hints of coriander and a peppercorn crispness.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Pretty nice saison with a very good flavor and aroma and a good body. Very enjoyable and worth having.

Poured from 22oz bottle into Chimay goblet.

A - Pale, hazy, amber-gold with a creamy white head.

S - Tart dried apricots and straw.

T - Citrus rind, hops, grassy finish.

M - Crisp carbonation, medium body, mildly cloying hops.

I wish it tasted more like it smells. It's not bad, just missing the saison funk and overly hopped.

A: Honey color, white foamy head; about two fingers worth.

S: Sweet honey smell, very perfumy. Has a hint of yeast and banana. Like a light smelling Hefe Weizen.

T: Bready, has a hop taste mid palate. The lingering flavor reminds me of the White Christmas from Samuel Adams. It's really good that it doesn't have any taste of alcohol since I've had beers at this alcohol level with present alcohol taste.

M: Light, and oily mouth feel. Doesn't leave much of an aftertaste in your mouth.

O: Not a bad beer. There was nothing spectacular about this beer but there's nothing wrong with it either. I would have it again.
