Look - Golden brown, maybe a hint of caramel color. Two fingers worth of foam that disipated quickly. Good carbonation.
Smell - I can smell exactly what they state on the bottle, mostly vanilla with a spice of lemon. The vanilla makes it seem like a darker citrus than it is.
Taste - A baradge of flavors without going too far back on the palate. The sweetness of the vanilla keeps the tone down a bit. More citrusy still than a normal saison, but it's state right there on the bottle, so it's no shock. Also a bit of a nutty flavor, like a nut brown. Not a strong aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - creamy.
Drinkability - I would rate this as a very nice seasonal. The spicy, nutty flavor reminds me of some of the brews back home, so I naturally like this one. The not-too-heavy body and minimal aftertaste makes it easy to come back to a few times.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a half-pint chalice.
A: Slightly hazy, medium golden color with less than one finger of diminishing white foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass.
S: A mixture of esters, crisp phenolics, and Belgian aromatic malt.
T: Begins dry, with strong esters and bready malt. Acidity is restrained into the middle where malt becomes more crisp and crackery. Herbaceous hops emerge in the finish with a thread of savory cooking spices--notably cumin.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, slightly syrupy on the palate, with low carbonation.
D/O: A fairly straight-forward saison, whose dry flavor is undermined somewhat by the syrupy texture. Advertised flavors are well-integrated, practically hidden, although other herbal and metabolite flavors fall within appropriate bounds.
