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

Appearance- Pours up a good amount of head which seems to be receding rather quickly. The head is a pure cotton white while the body is a hazy, pale amber which appears as cloudy, golden straw when held up to the light. Some lacing is left behind.

Nose- Nothing overwhelming but still quite nice. Notes of apple surface first, followed by some banana and cloves, a little bit of Belgian yeast. There is also a subtle perfume/floral quality to the aroma- it reminds me a bit of fresh laundry. These fade with apple and banana being left behind as the dominant notes. Subtle but nice.

Taste- Fairly strong taste of Belgian yeast- complete with spice, perfume, and floral characteristics. Lots of cloves. The banana and apple of the nose get really buried- this beer is much more of a phenol bomb. Some pepper and other spices on the finish. There isn't much of a linger- the finish is pretty dry. Some citrus (mostly lemon) starts to appear after subsequent tastes. Some melon and peach notes seem to mix with the overarching clove profile. Seems to be a decent saison but I do prefer much less clove. An above average beer but a mediocre saison. Slight astringency to the overall flavor profile. Doesn't really detract though. Fairly enjoyable beer- it simply seems lesser in comparison to the great saisons out there.

Mouthfeel- A light more than light bodied with a slight tinge of syrup. Light carbonation. A bit of a dry finish.

Drinkability- Pretty easygoing once the cloves start to mellow. The price was pretty reasonable (I think)- 2 to 3 bucks a can? I could see buying it again.

Overall- Above average to good beer. Nowhere near best in style but definitely with in the parameters. Worth a try, especially if you are looking for a budget saison. Though, I might try out Stillwater for that. Could see myself buying this again.
