look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured form the bottle into my large Chimay goblet.

A- translucent straw color. White head quickly dissipated

S- Love the smell of this. Belgian yeast, pepper (grains of paradise?), fruit (hint of banana and some tropical/citrus)

T- Kind of a let down from the smell, but it's just a bit too acidic for me. Lots of citrus, especially lemon.

MF- Very thin. Acidity tingles the tongue and the back of the throat.

Overall, not my favorite saison, but not a bad beer at all. I have acid reflux and generally don't care for citrusy beers, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

PS, pairs nicely with basil citrus turkey jerky.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottled on 3/04/13 12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A: Lemon yellow translucent body with a frothy white head. Tons of lacing and lots of retention.

S: I have a cold so I cant smell much, but I can pick up earth scents as well as yeast.

T: Lemon and ginger are present.

M: Very crisp carbonation. Tart mouthfeel on the back end. Some lingering bitterness. Very refreshing.

O: I havent had any from this style before, however I could see this beer being a go to summer brew. If I see it closer to its bottled date I will be sure to pick it up.
