22oz into a tulip. Pours a hazy pale copper w/ a loose white head, good carbonation.
Aroma is fruity and grassy, delicate; pear and apple, spice, Belgian yeast, floral hops.
Taste is likewise fruity and floral, subtle. Just a touch of grassy funk that increases as it warms. Bready. Not sure if wheat malt was used, but it has some of the characteristics of a wheat beer.
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, balanced, drinkable. Refreshing.
Overall a really nice saison with a nice juicy, citrusy, floral twist.

I had this beer on-tap in a Selkirk Abbey pint glass at the brewery.
Appearance: light golden hue with a strong effervescence and a thin layer of white foam. Not bad!
Smell: lightly funky with a nice sweetness which has a good fruity element which almost reminds me of plums. There's a little spiciness too, which rounds out a nice subtle complexity.
Taste: very sweet with a lot of that plummy fruitiness. There's a light funk too; it lacks balance, though. Just a bit sweet for my taste.
Mouthfeel: rich body with a huge carbonation and very good creaminess. I like it!
Overall: good; but a bit sweet for me.
