4.45/5  rDev +7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Apearance: Cloudy and dim, this banana yellow brew formed a huge snow-white head even though I poured it very gently. Generous lacing forms as the head quickly dissipates, leaving a half-finger head that remains throughout.

Smell: Very spicy on the nose. Fruitiness permeates and makes it a very prominent smell of the brew. Also present is a strong yeast aroma.

Taste: It is a quite tasty beer. The citrus present in the nose shines here. It's somewhat spicy, earthy, yeasty, fruity. The relatively dry finish is very manageable and rounds the brew out quite well. The taste pleasantly lingers.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and extremely well carbonated. It goes down easy. I could imagine coming in from a hot day of working out in the yard and being perfectly refreshed by this Saison.

4.1/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.

A: Pours a hazey golden color with lots of carbonation. There is a gigantic, dense head that eventually settles to 1 finger in size and sticks around for the remainder of the beer. Minimal lacing with some chunks of foam clinging to the sides of the glass.

S: Smell is of lemon, grass, white pepper and slight clove. Also a bit of yeast. The nose is similar to a Tripel with the pepper and yeast aromas.

T: Taste is fruity tartness with lemon and a bit of apple. White pepper and clove are definitely present. Some grassiness with earthy notes are there too.

M: Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel with high carbonation and a light body. Finish is somewhat dry.

O: Overall this beer was good, but wasn't a stand out by any means. This is the only saison I've ever had so maybe I'm just not a huge fan of the style, but I would give this beer another go. Nice and refreshing on a hot summer day.

3.26/5  rDev -21.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from 375ml/11oz bottle into a pint glass. Be careful pouring as I ended up with a 'beer floater' head.
Appearance was classic off yellow. The oversized head lasted for most of the drink.
First impression was of spice and this was confirmed on first taste.
I detected coriander and bouquet definitely opened as the beer warmed up in the glass.
The spice on the pallet clearly overrode the typical saison funk and really become pronounced on the back pallet towards the end of the beer.
Overall, being one of the first saisons I have critiqued I found it pretty good. If anything a little too spicy for my liking.
