look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Poured into my Delirium tremens tulip.

A: Pours a straight up gold color that's crystal clear with about a finger of mother-of-pearl head that fades quickly leaving almost no lacing.

S: Smells the way I would expect. Very zesty citrus (mostly lemon) and spices dominate. Almost like a spiced Belgian.

T: Very similar to smell. Lemon is present almost immediately, followed by some peppery saison flavors. Nice grainy malt.

M: Nice and light, yet still has some body. Very smooth, good carbonation, good residue. Exceptional.

D: This is a good beer. Don't usually like saisons, but this one is special. Very good. Would actually drink it again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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.
