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.
