3.14/5  rDev -11.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a golden yellow color with a finger of white head that slowly dissolved into a lacing of foam that covered the entire top of the beer.

Aroma: The beer has that typical, floral, Belgian-Saison aroma of banana, clove, orange-peel and yeast. A very bright aroma.

Taste: The flavor, however, is much weaker than the aroma. Very thin floral notes of hops and citrus, with just the faintest touch of coriander and clove.

Mouthfeel: Thin, slightly watery, but with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. At an ABV of only 4.5%, there is absolutely no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty good beer, but nothing special. I enjoyed it, and if offered, will enjoy it again, but I probably won’t go out of my way to look for it.

4.21/5  rDev +18.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy white head that leaves a ring of lacing.

Smells of lemony citrus and some floral notes.

Tastes of the lemon with some grainy malts and a bit of hops. Lemon zest notes lead off before some floral hops come through. Grainy malts come next with a bit of sweetness. A touch of pepper and funk add towards the end before one last kick of citrus finishes it.

Moithfeel is medium-light with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a tasty saison and gets a bit of a bonus for keeping the alcohol down.

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

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. 6/21

Pours very pale gold, a little hazy, 1/4 inch white head. Peppery spicy belgian yeast nose. Tart, citrus taste with a peppery hop. Spicy. Buzzes in the mouth during and after. Lively saison. Snaps to a close.
