My first review of this beer was written when I was just getting into craft beer. I remember the beer being a bit too much for me then thus the less than stellar review. I was able to revisit this gem when it I was it on tap at my local beer bar. I have to say that this is great on tap.
Taste: Spiced banana, clove and wheat notes. I could really sit and drink this all day. I have to say this is one of the better tasting beers I have had in awhile.
Smell: Banana and citrus notes. Slight wheat presence.
Ap: A clear light gold. The head disappeared quickly and there was hardly any lacing.
Verdict: I take back my comments that this isn't a top 100 beer. This beer deserves all the praises it should get.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: bottle
