Slight sage taste. IPA like but different in a way I can't explain. Really good.

Poured a gorgeous cloudy orange body with golden highlights and one finger of rich, foamy head. A wonderful looking saison. Scents of strong fruity esters upfront with notes of apricot, citrus, marmalade, a spicy yeast character with notes of white pepper, light clove and limited amounts of lemon zest and safe in the background. Overall impression is of a typical Saison base, rich in esters with lesser spicy phenols playing a good supporting role and just enough of the sage coming through to add some depth. Not a fabulously unique saison, but well executed. Flavor begins with medium sweetness with notes of apricot, white pepper, slight herbal/floral flavors, a light tang and some medium citrus character. Middle continues citrus flavors, along with white pepper, adding a bitter herbal touch that I believe is from sage, and a light touch of lemon zest and floral/herbal hops. Finish is medium-dry with notes of lemon zest, white pepper, some light sage bitterness and a touch of bright citrus. Aftertaste is white pepper, giving way to an herbal bitterness that from past experience I know to be the aftertaste of sage. Overall impression of flavor is of a nice saison, true to style, but with a little depth added by the sage. It could stand to be a more robust part of the overall flavor profile however. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with high, effervescent carbonation and a wonderful light acidity keeping it bright and balancing the dry finish. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a classic saison, true to style, refreshing and well done. Overall this is a very good saison. It has a classic armor and flavor, enhanced somewhat by the sage addition, though it could stand to be more robust. It is aided by a classic mouthfeel that is fantastic. A good saison and quite refreshing.
