Bottle into tulip (Packaged on 4/03/2013, best by 04/2015).

Appearance- Golden straw, pretty clear, massive white head that lasts

Aroma-Spicy, hay, peppery, Farmhouse funk, some fruitiness, light malt, slight hop as well, complex

Flavor- spicy, a little tart, fruity sweetness up front but finishes dry, pepper notes, crisp, slight alcohol

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, medium high carb, slight alcohol warmth

Overall- A very nice Saison, I can't believe I waited this long to try it. Very drinkable at the abv. Would recommend.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

appearance: Quite hazy golden straw. Huge head on the pour that recedes to a still substantial white head. Messy lacing.
smell: Inviting yeasty, fruity with a touch of funk
taste: Much like the nose though drier, with a bit of pepper in the finish.
mouthfeel: Light and foamy.
overall: 1st time for me and I'm a fan.

12oz bottled on 2/8/2013. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Golden yellow in color with 3 fingers of a soapy white head. Body is relatively hazy with quite a bit of fine suspended sediment.

Smell: Lots of spices. Clove, coriander, banana, white pepper, and orange. Big Belgian yeast character.

Taste: Follows the nose, with the orange, citrus character being more pronounced than in the aroma. Slightly tart upfront and through the finish. Citrus, spice and yeast characters are all present, without one overwhelming the other.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and crisp. Carbonation is on the high end of medium. Finishes dry with a very light bitterness.

Overall: Well balanced, extremely flavorful, and easily available saison. I'd recommend this to anyone from an experienced saison drinker to someone who's just getting into the style.
