3.53/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours with a golden orange color. Half a finger of head on the pour which settled in to a thin ring on the edges of the glass. Good amount of active carbonation but probably a touch slow for the style.

Smell: Interesting front of banana, white grapes, apricot, and prairie grass. Bright light fruits continue to build on the body. Buttery, creamy yeast rounds it out. Not overly complex but an interesting tilt on the style.

Taste: Bright front of banana, cloves, prunes, apricots, and straw. Oak, white pepper, lemon and some mossy hops show up on the body. Yeast has a rustic earthy flavor which masks the palate pretty well. Continuing bright fruits and some dry tobacco round this one out.

Mouthfeel: Lower carbonation makes for a very easy drinking saison. Bright fruits throughout are a unique twist.

Overall: An interesting saison to say the least. Really interesting hop/fruit flavors and aroma throughout set this one apart. Solid offering from New Holland.

Serving type: bottle

Appearance: 1 inch head, medium-high carbonation, light yellow in color, clear

Smell: flower, wheat, and banana

Taste: flower, wheat, and banana

Mouthfeel: sweet, light bodied and medium carbonation

Overall: More floral than a lot of the saisons I have had lately. Banana also sines through. I enjoyed this one and could see myself having a few on a hot day.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

Pours a hazy dark straw color with a white head. Aroma is fruity, with citrus, unripe banana and clove factoring in. In the taste, unripe banana and lemon upfront; herb, pepper and a bit of malt sweetness round it out. Not really bitter and virtually nothing there to balance the malts. Too sweet, not at all as spicy, earthy or tart like great saison style beers. Light body with a medium carbonation. Overall this was an ok wheat but falls short as a Saison.

Serving type: on-tap
