4.45/5 rDev +7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance - Pours a quick 3 fingers of tiny bubbled foaming white eggshell head, body is a very hazy bright golden yellow with very light orange highlights, body also contains alot of garb rising thru the center, leaves prominent foamy lace rings after each sip, great head retention.
Smell - Yeast, banana, light clove, fresh citrus, coriander, nutmeg, crisp pear.
Taste - Starts with yeast, light under-ripe banana, very gentle citrus of lemon and orange, very nice light pepperiness of white pepper, also hints of coriander and nutmeg, and there is a definite presence of white grape and young pears at the back of the quaff, the finish is yeast and drying spices, banana pith, and a very light sourness of grape skins.
Mouthfeel - Medium mouthfeel, and yet silky smooth and pillowy light. The bold flavors of yeast, spices, and light fruits fill the mouth, and then theres this wonderful carb with is medium-high, but the bubbles are so tiny, washing over the tongue in a smooth tingly foam with tiny little edges, really feels wonderful, and will have the sipper contemplative of both flavor and feel after each sip.
Overall - What else can I say, this is simply a fantastic saison, and a perfect representative of the style. Everything you want is here - yeast, spice, light fruits... and it's bold, effervescent and dry. A must try.

Appearance: An amazing whipped egg white head with excellent retention and great caked on lacing. An hazy golden straw color with nice races of yeast.
Nose: Coriander, lavender, some clean citrus and a tiny bit of pine. A little banana and yeast. Very clean.
Taste: Banana, grass, some citrus, and pineapple. Earthy and very well balanced.
Notes: A beautiful beer just to look at. It does not let you down and any category.
