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

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, hazy, gold in color, high carbonation, clear

Smell: apple, hay, and Belgian spices

Taste: apple, hay, and Belgian spices and sugars with slight earthy bitterness at the end

Mouthfeel: sweet with slight bitterness, medium-light bodied with low carbonation

Overall: I enjoyed this saison. It is above average and the bitterness at the end is just enough to balance out the sweetness. The alcohol is well hidden. I would probably pick this up again.

Reviewing this beer from notes, had over the summer. Smell rich, yeasty, with a bit of citrus mingled in. Appearance cloudy dark gold. Taste the yeast comes through here again and adds a nice mouthfeel as well. Nice depth next sip reveals a little of the citrus that appeared on the nose as well as what would be called earthiness if i was reviewing a wine, but essentially a really nice malty quality punctuated at the end with a nice spiciness from the use of the rye. Overall a really well done beer and one I'm looking forward to trying again as i write this review.

Draught @ Noho Brewfest: This one poured a cloudy, golden color. There was a small white head that leaves some lacing. It has a nice nose. Some spices, earthiness, yeast, citrus and wheat. The taste is also very good. Wheat, spiciness, citrus, some sweetness and dryness. A nice saison.
