3.86/5 rDev -1.8%
Poured an orange-like gold with decent head and lace and a funky aroma, some spice and citric notes, and a little bit of spice and yeast but not much else in the fruit department. Taste is more of the same as a smooth, light to medium bodied beer passes my tongue with moderate spiciness, citric hop and light/tropical fruit flavors. Not much sweetness but beer is lively with lots of carbonation. I enjoyed this beer; consider it a simple saison that complements a warm day.

4.35/5 rDev +10.7%
Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber color with a billowy "Belgian" head that webs the tulip with lacing
Smell: Toffee malt, with a range of spice (clove, apple/cinnamon, banana spice cake)
Taste: The toffee malt bursts forward, bringing the aromatic spice flavors along to build toward the middle; a touch of funk arrives, after the swallow, along with a vinous character the lingers into the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation
Overall: A Saison verging on a Dubbel, this beer has a lot of complexity; the more you contemplate it, the more it surprises you

poured 12oz bottle into Duvel tulip
A - It's a darker shade of yellow (like a ripe inside of a mango) with a 1.5 finger bright white head. Fades quickly and leaves a collar around the glass. Not much for lacing.
S - I can pick on the spice right away. Nice amounts of straw, bread, yeast, and some light citrus, lemon and orange.
T - Boom, this is the most spicy Saison I have had, but it is nicely balanced. Some yeast and bread with plenty of lemon and citrus. Straw, clove, grass. Ends with a pepper kick.
M - Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Spicy and dry on the finish.
O - Very nice Saison with a ton of spice. It is well balanced. Nick was nice enough to send it my way.

poured into tulip glass.
Appearance: Golden yellow bodied beer with slight haze to it. 1 full finger of bone white head that drops down to a thin ring. Spotty lacing.
Smell: Grainy, fruity, floral, and very yeasty. Clove and bananas. Strong notes of spicy purfume.
Taste: slight sweetness that is yeast forward and fruity with mostly bananas. Gritty and grainy. Mid palate white pepper and cloves. Very earthy and a little bit floral. Strong finish of perfume, wheat malts, and moderate hop bitterness tasting of grass and lemons zest.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Super clean and bright beer. A touch of booze. It is also hearty and rustic in character. Dry finish on this beer as well.
Overall: I like this beer, but the perfume flavor is really distracting. I really loved this beer as a base beer that is put into barrels. I have tried the stateside saison that was aged in chardonnay barrels and that beer was awesome!
