look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

1 pt. 9.4 fl. oz. bottle at refrigerator temperature poured into a snifter. No discernible bottling date on the bottle/cork.

A - Pours a bright golden body with a thick, cloudy head with good retention.

S - Very, very bright. Wildflowers, ripe pear, apple, banana, yeasty bready goodness, papaya, clove, bubblegum. Terrifically inviting.

T - Lots of tangy layers here. The wheat, hops, and yeast all impart different but complementary levels of flavor. Again, lots of banana, pear, papaya working alongside the bready yeast and the floral notes.

M - Crisp and refreshing. The yeasty, bready flavors make for a surprisingly filling brew.

D - Lots of dynamic yeast action here. I could probably drink another bottle of this in one sitting, but I would certainly take it slow - this is the kind of brew that rewards the drinker who takes his/her time. It's pretty filling, especially when compared to other saisons. I would pair this brew with a creamy Robiola Tre Latti or a bready, yeasty cow's milk cheese like Tomme Crayeuse.

4.1/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.

A: Pours a hazey golden color with lots of carbonation. There is a gigantic, dense head that eventually settles to 1 finger in size and sticks around for the remainder of the beer. Minimal lacing with some chunks of foam clinging to the sides of the glass.

S: Smell is of lemon, grass, white pepper and slight clove. Also a bit of yeast. The nose is similar to a Tripel with the pepper and yeast aromas.

T: Taste is fruity tartness with lemon and a bit of apple. White pepper and clove are definitely present. Some grassiness with earthy notes are there too.

M: Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel with high carbonation and a light body. Finish is somewhat dry.

O: Overall this beer was good, but wasn't a stand out by any means. This is the only saison I've ever had so maybe I'm just not a huge fan of the style, but I would give this beer another go. Nice and refreshing on a hot summer day.

Poured from 375ml/11oz bottle into a pint glass. Be careful pouring as I ended up with a 'beer floater' head.
Appearance was classic off yellow. The oversized head lasted for most of the drink.
First impression was of spice and this was confirmed on first taste.
I detected coriander and bouquet definitely opened as the beer warmed up in the glass.
The spice on the pallet clearly overrode the typical saison funk and really become pronounced on the back pallet towards the end of the beer.
Overall, being one of the first saisons I have critiqued I found it pretty good. If anything a little too spicy for my liking.
