12oz bottle, no date. Pours a hazy pale orange with a golden aura. White head is very creamy and frothy, stiffens up nicely and shows great retention.
The smell is a floral, zesty blend of lemon, orange, banana, and Belgian yeast. The flavor follows, with the addition of subtle vanilla, corriander, and a pleasant, warming buzz of alcohol.
The mouth is complex and well carbonated. It is lively and volatile on the palate, with a lingering, yet ultimately clean finish. Good drinkability, but the alcohol and dense flavor might prevent it from acting as a true session brew.
Amazing overall. Best saison I have had.
