On tap (have had before):
Pours a bit more orange than most saisons I've had recently, but with a nice foamy head that lasts, lacing the glass throughout. The nose is light, mainly citrus (lemon) and a little bit of yeast sour notes (sorta like some Brett beers I've had). I don't get much spice or earthiness.

The taste is fairly expected from the nose, fruit-tart with honey maltiness to start. The light lemon if the smell has added a pear/apple note to it. The yeast comes on with some earthy hop bitterness at about the same time. The combo results in a strange lemon-mint flavor (I don't think described it quite right, but best I can come up with). The feel is light and not as carbonated as you'd think from the head.

I have enjoyed this beer for years, but it has dropped a bit compared to other beers I have enjoyed since. It's a bit fruity and tart (or maybe less peppery) perhaps compared to my recent saisons, but I don't think it's out of style per se. The finish could be a bit more dry.

Thin head on a cloudy golden with copper hues body. Nice lacing. Aroma is very mild with mostly Belgian yeast mustiness, clove and a tart lemon citrus note. More yeast mustiness pretty much in the finish making it semi dry. Hops are mild with herbal and more tart fruit predominantly. Light to medium body and moderate carbonation. This one was too tart and bland for me. This is more like a tart hefe or something.
