Thanks, wagenvolks and xpimptastikx!

A saison from a can? In!

Clear golden. Creamy, persistent near-white head. Not a lot of stick, but a pretty beer nonetheless.

Very classic saison aroma. Dried grass and a little hay, very mild lemon, good amounts of earth, and faint, leafy hop character. Very nice.

Similar flavor as the aroma. Yeast dominated flavor with earth and dried grass notes shining through right up against just a bit of lemon, pepper, and leaf. Very tasty.

Medium bodied with crisp, near-high carbonation.

Too crushable. I want to get a case of this for the racetrack.

Cloudy golden pour with a white head that quickly fades down to a thin ring. Aroma: Dusty, yeast, lemon, and faint spice. Taste: overall pretty yeasty. Lemon zest and spice come through in the background. Palate: Prickly carbonation that finishes dry. Overall: Pretty refreshing and enjoyable. Nice for these hot Texas days.

Pale straw color with a wheat beer like haze, soapy head. Smell is aggressive and hence the name very barn yard like. Fairly clean taste at first, leads to a somewhat boozy taste and a sharp bite from the yeast. Kind of low in carbination, looks like the head got most of it, but it actually makes it pretty easy to drink and sessionable. I look at it more as a great session beer then a true belgian and the price point surely makes it a nice go to brew.

12 oz. can poured into "craft beer" glass (stick)

L: cool murky light orange; not 100% opaque but not clear; OK head of about 1/2 inch, very little lacing. the head isn't fantastic, but the color is.

S: tripel/hefeweizen like to me ... lots of sweeter/sour citrus, banana. smells a bit like wine.

T: very hefeweizen, plenty of sweetness but not overly so, lots of banana

F: fantastic body, carbonation

O: for a beer that isn't among my favorite styles, this one tasted awfully good during a recent fishing trip. and if you're in the mood for a tripel but want to save money, honestly, you could do worse than a couple cans of Barn Burner.
