Poured into a Deschutes snifter from a bomber.
Color is golden and slightly on the amber side. Small head, nice lacing.
Smell is of musty hops, banana, and spice.
Taste starts out heavy on the spice typical of a traditional saison, but quickly a large juicy wave of hops hits you. Stays on the citrusy side throughout the finish.
Mouthfeel is nice and the beer is appropriately dry and crisp. It definitely lingers for quite some time.
It's not the best or most adventurous hoppy saison ever, but it's a pretty good interpretation of the style at a pretty nice price point. This is the best beer I've had from Slumbrew to date, and I have bought a couple over the course of the summer for this reason.
