Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a hazy medium golden amber with a half figer white head with good retention and nice lacing. Aroma of saison yeast, orange citrus, light sweet malt, coriander and clove; spicy. Flavor starts spicy and semi dry, develops semisweet citrus and fruit with a bit of funk the finishes dry with wild yeast funk and saison spice bitterness. Medium bodied with peppery carbonation. I really like the flavor progression on this saison, with both dryness and light sweetness alternating. Good fruit and malt flavors and a just enough funk to give it character. Stillwater was the first brewery to turn me on to the saison style and this is an example of how they succeeded. Nice domestic saison.

A: Golden Orange in color and hazy. Stiff pour yields nearly 4 fingers of head. Great lacing and head retention. I can see that this is highly carbonated.

S: Slight spice from the Belgian yeast but mainly pale malts. Slight orange zest . This bottle is 8 months old, so perhaps that is why I am not detecting any hops.

T: The spice is more prevalent than the smell would suggest. Orange zest. Slightly bitter finish.

M: This coats the mouth - it's quite creamy. Medium to high carbonation. Dry finish

Has a very strong up-front flavor for a saison. Smooth finish. Nice spice. Very good.
