Golden yellow color. No head. Spicy, wheaty, fruity smell that I can't really put my finger on. Wow! Great taste! Was not expecting that at all! Awesome wheat feel with a full-bodied finish. The aftertaste is solid and lays heavy on the back of the tongue. I was very surprised by this beer. It's not world class by any stretch but it's damn good nonetheless.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12 oz bottle, poured into a New Holland High Gravity flute.

A - Burnt orange hazy body. Thing quickly -almost instantly - dissipating head. Zero Lacing. Totally uncharacteristic head for the style.

S - Orange Juice, orange peel, and green apple. Light hint of grassy hops. Aroma is prominent, but not as much as others of the style.

T - Bitter orange, some earthy green pepper and lemon peel. No hop, funk or acidity.

M - Light body, solid carbonation, dissipating finish, refreshing.

O - Great Saison, but nothing mind blowing.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into a blonde glass

Bright golden and orange hues with a thin white head

Smell gives banana, some citrus, and some herbaceous notes

The taste is almost exactly what a standard saison would taste like. I typically go for more effervescence and some more assertive flavors. This beer would appeal to Belgian drinkers as it definitely drinks more like a Belgian to me.

If this is your style, you can't go wrong with it. New Holland is a very solid brewery, and this delivers for a standard saison.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

The aroma finds a good Saison and farmhouse style. Its yeasty and malty with a good spiciness. Smells dry and sweet.
It tastes good. This rustic saison also has a mildly assertive hop character to really adds depth to this saison beer. Yeasty ester gives a mild fruitiness plus pepper spices and malts.
The beer drinks dry with a sprizy brightness but by beers end it seemed to sweeten.
The color is hazy golden straw with a bright white head. Carbonation is pretty robust also.
It's a good beer and worth seeking.
