Pours a finger and half of head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is quite fruit forward with banana and apricot dominant.
The taste starts with a mild apricot sweet note and then has a mild pine and grapefruit bitterness. Descent balance.
The texture is crisp, a bit too fizzy though.
It's enjoyable enough.

Standard Anchor bowling pin bottle poured into a New Belgium globe glass. Pour is clear and deep golden/light amber with a half inch of short lived foam. Nose is spicy and accompanied by a peppery and floral hop presence which expands with warming.

Taste follows the appearance with a spritzy spice and a light caramel sweetness which is enhanced, to my chagrin, by the light carbonation on the delivery. This makes the beer come across in feel as a bit too rich as to my preferences to the style. Touch of lemon on the taste when agiatated but this beer largely falls flat on its heels. Needs more carbonation as it stands but even that would only go so far.

Liking the recent preponderence of saison style beers but find this one a bit flat and sweet.

The color is a beautiful burnt orange with a white, soapy head that dissipated quickly. The aroma is okay. I'm getting a lot of citrus and sweet fruit. Also a touch of alcohol. The taste leaves me with wanting more. The mouthfeel is a bit watery. Not very dry, which would have made this beer more pleasant. You get a touch of the alcohol in the back end, even when the beer is fairly cold. Taste is mostly of citrus. This beer is just okay
