look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Paid $3.99 for the 25.4oz bottle...
This ale pours a cloudy yellow color with a huge white head, exceptional head retention and nice lacing effects on the glassware. The aroma is yeast and fruit driven with a touch of alochol, nice mellow and strong notes of both.
The taste is very full-body. The yeast flavor takes over and it leaves a fruity aftertaste, a bit lemony. The mouthfeel is smooth on the palette and this is highly drinkable, at 7.7%abv, it is hard to not consider this a session beer.
Final Thought: This is an excellent example of a craft beer with great creativity; it is not only a staple in its class but also an excellent buy.

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.
