Cloudy straw yellow. Big white head of tight bubbles and a nice nose of spent grains, Belgian yeast, and mild fruit. Very Belgian in style, lots of banana. Creamy/tight carb, very dry finish and a bit of hopped bitterness. Decent.

A: Straw with a light haze, lots of tiny small rising bubbles, and a huge 5 finger rocky white head. Large chunky lacing.


S: Cloves, bananas, Belgian yeasts reminiscent of a tripel or strong pale ale, earthy herbal quality. Tyme, majouram, French herbs.


T: Belgian yeast qualities, light lemon zest, little acidic lemon, a light sweetness. Ends in an herbal bitterness that lingers on the tongue.


M: Light and crisp, little carbonation.


O: My first saison from a can. Its really well done. Pushes a little more towards a Belgian brew than many saisons, but is exceptional. Will give it 8.9. Bought in Thailand, drank in Kunming, Jan 13th, 2015.

Poured from a tall-boy can into my Brasseurs De Garde tulip.

Hazy straw body with a faint whisper of beige up top that recedes to a vague ring. Delicate lacing, poor retention.

Slightly floral and peppery aromatics with a hint of grain/hay (sort of like a feed store). I can't decide if it is "delicate" or just weak.

The yeast dominates the flavor profile, with a pleasing peppery/funky bite. Hints of citrus and dandelion greens lead into the dry finish. Pils character cuts through the wheat and corn (the latter really isn't helping anything here; and the additional two-row malt seems just like more filler), though any hop flavor is muted despite a mild but palpable bitterness throughout.

Thin bodied, with insufficient carbonation for the style.

I was expecting more given the high skills proven by other offerings from this brewery, but this is still a decent domestic saison and an excellent value for the style.

Got in a trade with RaulMondesi. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, no can dating. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy bright golden color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, straw, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, straw, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good big. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and moderate pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice saison style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and moderate pale malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. It did feel like a cross between and Belgian pale ale and saison; but was still a very enjoyable offering.

I don't like this saison. It has a funky rotten taste

Cloudy yeller with a puffy head.

Sunshine--no, but it is bright and citric.

Saaz comes through. Not so peppery, sorta bitter, fairly sweet, bready and lemony. Half way descriptions and missing a bit of punch but, nonetheless, very goody.

Silky feel possibly from flaked wheat.
