Golden blonde with cornsilk highlights when backlit and a pretty looking, lumpy cream colored head that leaves some nice lace on the glass. The nose is nice, soft banana and lemon zest with a touch of spice and earthy hop notes. Lemon sugar cookie and untoasted grain with a mild hop bite. On the leaner side of medium bodied with a clean citric finish. A fine session beer from BBC, I hope this will be released in sixpack form next year.

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

Appearance: A nice golden color with a decent white head that leaves some lacing

Smell: Spicey, medicinal, a little sour, and some hints of malts

Taste: Light malts, spices, medicine, herbs, and some fruit

Mouthfeel: Light body, medium carb

Overall: Not the best saison in the world, but you can't beat it for the price. Seems like "saison light" to me. Mainly a toned down version, but it does have that signature saison flavor. I'm really impressed with this. It is good for the summer, and I'd gladly get more. Easily the best of a very good variety pack. Too bad I can't get it on its own.

Been a while since I had any Saison, need to brush up on the style a little.

A -- Clear, pale straw-gold with a sudsy white head that settles slowly.

S -- Mild fruit and honey with very vague DMS.

T -- Mild honey sweetness up front that blends into light clove phenolic character with some mild citrus fruitiness and ends tart to spicy bitter. There is a light clove and bitterness in the aftertaste.

M -- Body is light with a crisp mouthfeel.

O -- Very refreshing on a hot afternoon, but is it a Wit or a Saison? There may be some more study in my future.

Had it in goblet shaped glass.

Appearance: Light orange color, good head

Smell: similar to a wheat beer (nutmeg, little banana)

Taste: Similar to a crystal weissbeer, but a bit more sour

Overall I found it to be a good beer for the summer. I also found it to be good with barbeque.
