From notes.
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.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip

A - Slightly hazy burnt orange/amber body with plenty of bubbles racing to the top. 2-finger pure white head that retains for the entire experience; literally never fades. The carbonation just keep building that head back up. Beautiful lacing. One of the more pleasing beers to look at.

S - A very good balance of yeast, hops, and sweetness. I love the saison yeast in the nose which is followed by mild citrus peel and just a very light touch of flowery hops.

T&M - Lively carbonation makes this a drier beer, but not nearly as dry as champagne. Still retains a nice thirst-quenching character. I really like the balance of yeast and hops in this beer. A hoppier saison for sure but the yeast keeps telling you it's a Belgian-style saison. Hops give a citrus peel bitterness likened to kumquat and lemon peel. A small dose of candy sugar and malts sweetens things up just a bit.

O - I really liked this and could definitely down a few of these. Saison-dry while remaining refreshing. Great flavors throughout the experience.
