Pours a hazy golden color with a frothy white head that leaves some chunks of lacing.
Smells of citrus and some earthiness.
Tastes of a nice wave of fruits with some underlying spice. Notes of apple, orange, lemon, and some white grapes with a decent sweetness lead off. Bread notes come through and add body to the mix. Some spicy notes come through and add depth along with an earthy bitterness. Finishes dry.
Mouthfeel is medium-light with a crisp amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is another good offering from Stillwater, but I feel like the price is still higher than it should be ($10.95).

330 ml bottle, cloudy golden colour with really good lacing. Smell has some apricot and a full fruity yeast aroma, banana, hay and pale malt, sweet a bit with also a ton of complexity. Taste is got a hefty carbonation with some banana and grape flavours, some cinnamon and bready malts, some peach and slight barny flavours, a bit of a hay overload before coming to a full finish with a bit of a high hop bitterness, finish then dries out. A ballsy full flavoured saison, some of the alcohol comes through and eventually it become apparent this is not up to the highest standards despite a full flavour. Pretty solidly built saison though, lot of flavour and good stylistically, perhaps my criticisms were a bit too harsh as it's quite tasty.

Light straw, clumpy lace. Nose and taste are lemons, zest, cloves, spice. Nose is a lot less than taste tho.. Full bodied and in your face from first sip, as is Stillwater's wont, tho the taste does feel somewhat over spiced thus disconnected. Almost like a favour had been added too late. Dry finish and zesty palate
Good drinking tho.
