look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: It poured with a finger high white head that died down, consistently leaving a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
A: Light aromas of Belgian yeast are present in the nose along with some hints of floral hops and spices.
T: The taste seems to be a little fruitier compared to the smell and has notes of apples and slight hints of sweetness. Notes of Belgian yeast and pale malts are also present.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer doesn't have much of the complexities as in other saisons, but is pleasant to drink and has some refreshing properties.

Poured on tap at Pizza Paradiso Dupont into a tumbler glass.

Big white foamy head, but presented with about a finger length tall. Good staying power. Dull bodied lemon body color, slightly green, lots of good rising carbonation and some good ring like sheets of lacing while drinking.

Nose has a real interesting sweet yeast component. Mild sense of floral and herb notes, with a deep malt dough that dominates. Not particularly dry, and no sense of heat or funk or anything crazy here.

Palate is sweet, with a thick peanut butter aroma and taste. How odd. Big peanut butter cookie and dough white bread, really chewy texture to go along with this. Much of the aroma is slammed by this flavor profile, and thick sweetness that takes over.

It's an interesting beer but reminds me nothing of a saison character at all. Much of the classic dryness is lost here, and the floral and herbal muted notes are completely lost in the palate.

On tap at the Perennial Tap Room in St. Louis, MO. Poured into a snifter glass today, 4/5/2014.

App- slightly hazy golden straw body, half a finger effervescent white head with minimal retention. Some lacing, not a ton. Looks like a beer, nothing surprising.

Smell- earthy saison funk and pale malt breadiness. Not particularly complex but a good simple combination. No chamomile tea or floral notes to be found. A bummer.

Flavour- still no chamomile character to be found; perhaps it's contributing to the earthy notes. Some non-descript yeast spices, bready pale malt, small touch of funk. Solid profile but nothing superbly interesting.

Mouthfeel- medium bodied, almost creamy but not overly so that it would be out of style. Solid drinking beer, not offensive on this aspect. Saison funk, earth on the backend.

Overall- a fine saison, nothing too memorable but I wouldn't turn it down if offered to me. Worth a try at least once. But it's rather expensive for a bottle if I recall correctly.
