This is a hard beer for me to judge as this is probably the only saison I have had, but is it delicious or what! I think the only reason I haven't tried them is because of the price tag of some of these french/belgian farmhouse beers.
A- Light golden color with a big frothy head that stays the entire drink.
S- Smell is yeasty, with dry fruit and caramel malt in the background
T- Yeasty to start, then the malt kicks in with a nice caramel flavor, some hops add a spicy sting, then it finishes with a dry yeasty flavor and heat from the alcohol
M- This is a lighter bodied beer than other similar high gravity brews. High carbonation as well, but there also is a certain hardness to it, this must be from the carbonates or other minerals in the water.
D- This is a delicious brew and the light body gives it the drinkability that makes A-B blush. With the high alcohol content I am happy I can only afford this once in a while.

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.
