Straight up the best Saison on the West Coast. Fantastic recipe. Super clear and super clear finish. Corn helps with that possibly? Nice balance while maintaining the Belgian yeast flavor profile.
I have offered this to Corona swilling lady friends who agree this is fantastic. That's a tough bridge to cross. Believe it.
"Only" scored 4.5 because I think I can homebrew a better copy!

Awesome beer for year around.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: 4.5 Very clear, yellow-gold with a two finger off-white head that dissipates rather quickly.

S: 4 Very floral with strong Belgian yeast and lots of esters. Smells a lot like a Belgian strong pale ale with the typical cloves, orange, and banana. Not quite typical of the style, but still very nice.

T: 4 Similar to the nose. Pretty strong Belgian yeast with slightly more sweetness than I would expect. The flavors are less estery and a bit more inline with a classic saison, however there’s not a lot of nuance. The most interesting aspect is the slightly hoppy and bitter finish.

M: 4 Good mouthfeel, but could use a bit more carbonation. Perhaps it would help some of the flavors become more apparent.

O: 4 This is very solid beer, but nothing incredible and not a great example of a saison. It seems to be a bit more of a hybrid. Still very enjoyable and crushable.
