The color is a light yellow in the glass. The head is white with lots of carbonation visible. The overall smell is of citrus with a hint of spice. There is a lack of lacing on the glass. On first taste, you have citrus, bread and a hint of spice. The taste is dry and crisp. The overall mouth feel is very soft and smooth to the mouth. This is a beer that would be good for after a hot day of work. It pairs well with light food, fruit, cheese and bread.

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: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance - This is what a Saison should look like, golden and unfiltered. Poured into my Duvel glass a four finger billowy head which quickly dissipated.
Smell - I get a soewhat sweet smell. I do not pick up a funky yeast smell typical with Saisons.

Taste - Not sassertive enough taste for me. The first Saison I ever tasted was Ommegang's Hennepin which for me is still the benchmark Saison.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium.
Overall - I can't recommed this one, I kept wishing for a more assertive taste.

Overall I thought that this had great texture goes down really smooth. The one thing i didn't like was the smell. Even though i like stouts and a bit more hopper beers. It would be a great beer to relax to on a nice summer or spring night. For being a Farmhouse Ale i thought it was a bit on the weaker end of the scale.
