On tap at the ultra hipster spot, Lola Gaspar in Santa Ana, CA.
They replaced the Tripel with this, and boy is Raul sure glad they did! The main man has never had such a fruity - tropical fruits at that - saison before. The thang is just lush alà Megan Fox's lips post collagen injection.
Get on this hard, my children.

(3.75) A: Straw coloured with a bit of haziness and a thin bubbly head that recedes to a ring. Nice lacing as this recedes.
(4.25) S: Fresh grass, grains, tart grapefruit, white grape, yeast, cane sugar, banana, cloves, slight lemon sourness. There is a nice level of barnyard funk to this aroma with a hint of lemon. An excellent wide variety of aromas.
(4.0) T: Grains/herbal qualities, tropical fruits, citrus, honey, cloves, pepper, and white grape. Although described as herbal I find this to lean more towards floral as this warms up. There is a fair amount of sweetness (honey, banana, etc.) that is pleasant and works well with the level of dryness in the finish.
(4.25) M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Creamy and smooth with a nice oily quality. Excellent.
(4.0) D: I'd say this is an excellent belgian saison and one that I will continue to keep an eye out for.

The saison is something I would have expected Allagash to do in their sleep, but to my surprise I came across it for the first time at a Tapas bar in Rancho Santa Margarita. Served on-tap in a cheater pint, on to the beer:
This is one pale yellow beer, looking more of a witbier in my mind. Topping it a billowy head that leaves some spotty lacing around the glass. It smells like a simple but good saison, with lemon peel, vague spices, and white pepper.
First note that I tasted was bubblegum. Then comes a smack of tart lemon, white pepper, and while it's not a very "funky" beer, there's still a little of it going on. There's also manure. Yep, such is the case of saison. It's a lighter beer with crisp carbonation, and is easy to drink as it is refreshing.
That's nice. If relaxed is your way to rock saison, Allagash Saison can go on your list.
