On draught at The Bier Stein, hazy pale orange, small off-white head, nice lace.

Smell is spicy citrus, bubblegum.

Taste is smooth, sweet, spicy, fruity.

Mouthfeel is creamy, medium bodied, though a touch watery.

Drinkability is fine, a little heavy on the malt and spice, but clean, with nice esters.

Serving type: on-tap

Picked this up in the Portland airport. I love the bottle art. Tasted 25 July 2014.

Pours a lovely hazy medium orange-yellow. Two fingers of fluffy dense white head; excellent retention and fine lacing.

Smell is light and fruity, and all things saisony. I really like it. Delicate floral notes overlaying the almost-ripe stone fruits, and a spicy tingle in the back. Yum.

Taste is good, though not as balanced and varied as the smell. Slightly tart, a bit of funk, and a hair spicy, but otherwise relatively thin on flavor. Decent.

Feel is delightful. Medium-bodied with a layer of low carbonation that makes it fluffy, followed by a rush of more substantial bubbles.

A pretty solid saison. Taste is the weak point, but everything else holds it up well. Very balanced, and right in the middle of the style's flavor spectrum.

22 oz bomber from Lifesource Grocers in Salem. $4.99eous lace all down the glass. Pours a slightly hazy honey golden colour with a large thick and creamy off white head. Subsides but leaves gorgeous lace all down the glass Fine spicy,,peppery, yeast aromas. Bubblegum and some sweet clove and banana. Nice stuff. Taste is a bit of a let down from the aroma but it has it all ,more bitter less sweet . Dry palate on this one. Dries out the tongue. But it does force another sip. A nice enough attempt and perfectly drinkable.
