Sampled a bottle purchased from the brewery. Pours a mostly hazy golden color. Some sediment in the bottle. A big fizzy head that id take a bit of time to subside but limited lacing overall.
The nose is complex. A soft malt aroma comes out with a hint of sugary undertones. Some pilsner notes with a hint of wheat. Noticeable fruity complexity. Some rose peddles and tropical fruits. A touch of orange and pears as well. Noticeable yeasty notes that come out more as it warms. Great complexity and hint of a spice, almost similar to coriander.
The taste follows the nose. Nice complexity but very soft on the palate. More of a malty undertone than sugary notes versus the nose. More of a Belgian malty connotation despite the German malts. The yeast comes out more versus the nose as well. A very nice complexity with a touch of pepper and noticeable fruity notes. Pears, apricots, figs and oranges.
The mouthfeel is light. More of a soft feel but a great lingering feel. Some residual sweetness in the finish but good. Carbonation might be a touch low but ok. Overall a very good saison. Tasty for sure.

750ml bottle, bottled on 10/21/2013. Poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 1/20/2014.
App- cloudy yellow with orange hue, very effervescent white head requiring some time to pour. Lots of retention and lacing. Very pretty.
Smell- crisp non-descript tartness with no hint of fruit character. Yeast and associated spiciness. Floral character. Boring.
Taste- Crackers, slight spiciness, pepper. A little bit of butter. Not that much going on.
Mouthfeel- Thinner bodied, solid carbonation. A bit watery. Very dry finish.
Overall- Not that interesting, nothing stands out while drinking this beer.
