This beer needed a review!

Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a one-finger head of white, sudsy foam. It left soapy trails of lace on the glass. Smelled of tropical fruit and grains. Tasted great. Slightly spicy with tropical fruitiness with a touch of pepper. It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish. This is a really tasty saison from a really good brewery.

A: Hazy orange, slightly fizzy head.

S: Saison funk, banana, clove, belgian yeast, toasty malts

T: Effervescent banana notes with typical saison funk, clove like notes (somewhat like a hefeweizen), slight Belgian yeast notes, lemon like drying by the hops on the back end.

M: A little thin for a saison. If they were going for a sessionable saison, they nailed it. If not, this seems a little light for the style.

O: Saisons are usually a hit-or-miss with me. This is somewhere in between. I love nearly every beer from Wiseacre I have had the privilege to enjoy. This one is ok. A little better than average, but not the usual home run I have come to expect from Wiseacre. This is worth a try, but if you have not tried other Wiseacre offerings before, go there first.
