4.2/5  rDev +2.4%

Poured from 25 oz. bottle into pint glass

A - The body is a pale straw color with a white head of medium thickness.

S - Banana, clove, black pepper, orange, and graden herbs all mingle to desirable effect.

T - A super-fresh tasting beer with a sizable hop presence for the style! The hops bring orange, peach, and even berry flavors to the tongue. Then spicy yeast esters dance over the cracker-like malt. The finish is fairly dry and bitter with lingering spice and a hint of alcohol.

M - The mouthfeel is just a hair over medium-bodied.

O - A very tasty beer. The Amarillo hops bring a pleasant fruity element to the Saison. Worth checking out.

Review from notes dated 8/2/14

Cheers to Bilco for sharing this

A: Solid, honey gold with some yellow - pours with a medium-sized, off-white head, fades to a few wisps, leaves some lacing

S: Yup, that's a saison - very yeasty, with some spice, cloves, and grass - some citrus notes as well - light farmhouse funk, with some tartness - some pale malts, sweetness

T: Some nice saison flavors, but the notion of a "super" saison may be a bit much - earthy tartness, with a lot of sweetness - banana, clove, spice, and some yeasty flavors - pale malts and some wheat - too sweet, and booze is oddly noticable

M: Medium body, nicely carbonated, finishes a little wet

O: Well that's just super

There is nothing wrong with this take on a saison; it's just not what I am personally looking for in the style. It's a bit too sweet, a bit too boozy, and not as dry as I like my saisons.

Lively, fruity saison with lots of character. Nose is amazing. Must try if you have access.
