3.91/5 rDev +2.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
On-tap 7/30/13 at Pour Farm Tavern in New Bedford, MA, served in a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains spices, wheat, caramelized malts, Belgian yeast and some fruit.
T: The taste starts out with sweet flavors of spice, caramel and bananas. Then some breadiness comes in from Belgian yeast and a hearty malt character. The hops presence is mild complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid Saison to drink for a long time.
Serving type: on-tap

3.63/5 rDev -5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Sample: 1 bottle 2012
A: Pours an intense white and foamy head, straw yellow in color, heavy internal carbonation, quite cloudy throughout
S: Rather sweet bouquet, lots of fruit and yeast, some mild spicy and floral/herbal elements, strong fragrance overall
T: Similar to the nose, fruity and yeasty, but certainly disappointing, hardly flavorful, definitely lacking towards the finish, sweet and sour at once, one dimensional, however
M: Smooth, strong sour bite, not lingering, moderate fruity aftertaste, not drying or overpowering on the palate
O: Decent, but lacking flavor and complexity, nice look, but could be more smooth, unfortunately not what I was expecting

Re-reviewing this from the first time I had it. Batch 3, bottled in Jun 2013.
A: Bright, hazy yellow. Super fluffy, large bubbled, bright white head.
S: There is a sweetness to this. Biscuit malts in the foreground, some banana, clove, Belgian yeast and lemon zest.
T: Not a super dry, traditional Saison by any means. It has a nice sweetness to it, that balances out whatever little funk it has. Slightly tastes like a hefeweizen.
M: Super carbonated. Really aided in pushing the flavors around my mouth.
O: This aged well I thought. Didn't really develop anymore funkiness but was not hurt by the 1+ years of aging. Might have contributed to the extra carbonation.
