4.01/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Golden yellow in color with a deep haze. Poured with a short white foam that quickly reduced to a wispy cap. Grainy, bready malt aromas with a nice balance of both sweet banana, tart citrus and bready yeast notes. Light peppery notes are way off in the distance. Medium bodied with thick oily feel up front that is slowly consumed by crisp, tight, spicy carbonation through the middle to the finish. A flash of banana flavor followed by tart citrus flavors up that turn spicy and peppery through the middle to the end. Bready and yeasty flavors underneath through the middle. Finishes crisply and semi-dry with lingering pepper notes and hop bitterness.  Not the typically intense tartness and spiciness that I've experienced with this style....which I really like. The aromas and flavors had a pleasant balance and subleties that made this refreshing and easy to drink.

3.5/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a sam adams custom glass: color is gold, head is off white, medium bubbles in the froth that dissipates quickly.

Smell is a pretty even blend of bready malt and dry yeast off flavors; malt flavor is biscuit and pilsner; yeast off flavors are light phenol and subtle spice.

Taste is more bready malt than most saisons, reminds of a hefe/saison blend; wheat and bicuit are dominate at first then dry out with the yeast bite.

Mouthfeel is sweet at first from the bready malt flavors then dries and bites the tongue a bit.

Overall, a interesting take on the saison with some hefe or wheat bear like malt flavors.

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

12 oz. can poured into a tulip

A- Pale orange with yellow highlights, and hazy. Sturdy white head stands at 1/4". Some lacing.

S- Balance of grain, yeasty spice, and a fruitiness.

T- Yeasty. Sweet, but not snappy. A little fruit. Slight dry spice.

M- Wet and sweet. A little sweet and semi-dry finish.

O- Not as citrusy and snappy as I like my saisons. A bit of a hybrid between Wit and Saison, in my opinion.
