My wife got me this for my birthday and it was much appreciated. Actually split this over turkey dinner on Christmas Eve, and thought it went well with the bird and some of our other fare.
Used kind of a tall, stemmed water glass for this one, like what you see at hotel conferences. It's a go to for me when I do saisons. Bottle has a big black label that just says SAISON on it in green - no messing around there. Pours a dim yellow with massive fluffy head and more cloud the further into the bottle you get.
Aroma is nice and tart, sweet and citrusy, with mineral, bubblegum and tropical fruit. Flavor is tart and sweet, with almost an underlying butteriness to it, and a lightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light to medium, light to medium carbonation, and has a bit of an uplifting airiness to it that feels refreshing.
This is what saison is all about. Great offering from Funkwerks.

On tap at Jax Fish House, Ft. Collins CO.
Golden yellow, somewhat cloudy with a bright white head that persists with a lot of lacing.
Fruity aroma with apples, pears and some citrus with a lesser degree of spice and finally a bit of musty yeast.
Taste is predominately fruit with sweet apples balanced with mild bready malt and mild bitterness with just a hint of ethanol. Very drinkable but with ample interesting flavor.
Medium creamy body with moderate carbonation.
Great complexity of flavor, well balanced and excellent example of the saison style. Refreshing and drinkable but with plenty of flavor. My favorite saison to date.
