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

Pours a hazy gold with lots of bubble streams topped by a towering white foamy head.

The malt smells crackery, plus pears and apple esters followed a by a peppery finish. Taste is sweet initially with the pale crackery malt, followed by the peppery spice and ending with a bit of fruity esters of apple, pear and melon. Some lemon too. Part of the taste is just plain sugary, though it finishes moderately dry.

Mouthfeel is creamy with alcohol warming. Carbonation is foamy, not prickly. The feel leaves a bit of sticky sugar on the lips despite the moderately dry finish.

This is a very good saison. Not as dry as many others.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a nice head and a bit of lacing sticking around. Smell has a good bit of earthiness along with some spice and a few Belgian-yeast esters. Quite pungent; a bit more so than the taste. Mouthfeel is very nice with a crisp carbonation and and nice dash of citrus/earthy dryness. Drinkability is very, very good; really wish this was sold in 4-packs around here.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Poured into a 20oz pint glass has a hazy, cloudy straw colored body with a thick, just-off white head that leaves beautiful lacing.

Smells are faint, but honey, lemon and some grain come through.

Taste is about what you'd expect from the smell. No real hop flavor, but some nice sweetness and citrus spice. No one flavor seems to dominate the others.

Medium-body mouthfeel with a good bit of carbonation.

Incredibly drinkable. This seems like it'd be the perfect way to end a hot summer's day.

Poured into a tulip glass at the Flying Saucer in Raleigh, NC.

A nice pale yellow appearance with a minimal white head and a few lines of bubbles rushing up from the bottom of the glass.

The aroma is of honey, light fruitiness...mainly green apple..., possibly some wheat. A faint alcohol presence is apparent after it warms.

The taste is also of green apple, with a good malt presence and minimal hop bitterness or flavor.

It has a light mouth feel with with a slight prickliness from the carbonation.

Overall, this is a great summer beer. Nice for a hot day, but still enough flavor and complexity to be a quality craft beer.
