3.33/5 rDev -10%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
12 oz. bottle, no apparent bottled on date, besides a code C302 stamped on the side. Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.
A - Pours a cloudy golden lemon like color with two fingers of fizzing white head, and some bubbles rushing to the top. Scattered lacing.
S - Smells of pale malts, faint citrus, and earthy dry grass. Some floral coriander notes in there also. Definitely a nice smell, but I somehow feel it is missing something.
T - Can definitely taste the unique earthy, grassy qualities coming from the spelt rather than using plain simple wheat. Very malty. Lots of bubblegum. Extremely earthy, with almost a smoked wood type of taste coming out.
M - Very dry feel, invoking another taste. Sweet, fruity type aftertaste in there vaguely reminiscent of some pear flavor. Slightly over-carbonated.
Overall, not a bad beer. Fruity, spicy, and sessionable with a solid 6.25% abv. Although, I would probably seek out some of New Holland's more complex endeavors, this simple saison isn't bad sippin especially when you get it on sale for $4.99 a six pack like I did.

3.74/5 rDev +1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass on 2/2/13.
A: Pours a hazy light straw/yellow color with a generous head that settles. Lots of carbonation bubbles.
S: Wheat, lemon, yeast, bready malt, coriander. Nice refreshing scent.
T: Bready backbone comes through, along with wheat, a light tartness, and some grassy flavor. Bit of pepper. Flavors are generally subtle and left an aftertaste I didn't care for.
M: Lots of carbonation and a light body.
O: Aroma was very good, but the taste left much to be desired. Not very fruity. Still, not a bad saison.
