Had this on 2009-01-30 and again on 2013-09-15 in Columbia, PA
A - The saison beer pours a beautiful, straw yellow color with a 4" head!
S - There is a light Belgian yeast, fruit and floral smell.
T - The taste is very complex and delicious that I'd describe as bubbly, fruity, lightly tart and cheerful. Seriously though, the things I taste in this beer are grain, carmelized apple, grains of paradise pepper/citrus and a lightly bitter aftertaste.
M - The carbonation is medium-high and it has a light-medium body. Crisp and dries quickly.
O - A flavorful and unique beer. Not something I'd want on a regular basis but a nice treat.

4.04/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours with three fingers of bubbly white head. Active carbonation is huge. Color is a light straw yellow. Sticky lacing left behind as head very slowly dissipated.
Smell: Pears, spices, bananas, and semi-sweet bready malts greet the drinker. There is some very dry pepper, and ashy notes on the body. Earth and dirt mesh with some light hop notes on the back end. Wow a lot going on here.
Taste: Touches of pepper and airy spices hit on the front first. Bread, sweet dough, and some salty hops show up on the body. More sweet malts ride through on the finish and some lingering spices go well together.
Mouthfeel: Bright carbonation with pleasant transitions of spice and sweet malts.
Overall: A great American saison. The pepper and dryness is heavier then I expected but this overall is a slow sipper that is easy to enjoy.
