Cloudy gold color. Okay starting head that leaves a cross between spotted and ring lace.

Spicy aroma that reminds me of rosemary and oregano. There's also a sweetness that is reminiscent of cherry syrup, but that might be because of my proximatey to the fruit garnish tray.

Okay I have a weird first impression: This tastes like unsweetened bubble gum. Relatively dry, especially when compared to the smell. The body is neutral but the carbonation is a bit high. Spicy finish that reminds me of all spice and cardamon. In the end, I give this beer big kudos for the complexity and interesting flavors.

Serving type: on-tap

Bottle from Ball Square.
Pours a really clear Medium golden color with a huge bubbly white head that is continually fed by a steady stream of carb bubbles. Earthy and floral hops dominate the aroma with a bit of bready yeasty funk and hints of pepper and spice rounding out the nose. The flavor is a yeasty bready affair with plenty of spice to cut through it all. Light floral earthy hop flavor with hints of melon like fruit. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a tart bubbly mouthfeel. Another Saison this time a little hoppy. This one is drinkable, not my favorite from them, but good just the same.

750ml bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.

A: Hazy golden-orange with reddish hues. A thick, foamy white head settles after a while, but holds at a respectable half-inch. Lacing is thick, prevalent, and irregular.

S: Malts lend a soft graininess and a honeyed sweetness. Hops are reminiscent of freshly cut grass and a field of wildflowers. Yeast is very subtly spicy. Tropical esters are quite prominent and lend aromas of pineapple and Clementine. A very vibrant nose that suggests 'spring' perhaps more so than most beers that claim to be spring seasonals.

T: Honeyed granola. Touch of toast and bread crust. Juicy clementine, pineapple. Doughy and chalky yeast. Vague spiciness. Muted spike of alcohol. Firm hop bitterness. Green and floral hop tastes with a touch of grass and just the slightest hint of pine needles. Dries a bit and finishes with doughy yeast and lingering hop oils.

M: Medium bodied, but very full and even a little chewy. Velvety and smooth. Modest prickling carbonation.

O: A pleasant, hoppy saison that does a good job of conveying a sense of seasonality.
