look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A - Arrived in a tulip glass with about a finger's worth of white head which retained well and left some spotty lacing on the glass. The beer is a golden straw color and hazy. I can see lots of carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass.

S - Dominant aroma is a spicy grassiness with hints of yeast.

T - Complex flavor profile. The background is a slightly sweet barnyard funkiness. On top of that I can pick out layers of peppery spice, lemongrass, and an ever so slight touch of alcohol. The alcohol basically puts a point on the other flavors.

M - Nothing outstanding here. Medium bodied with substantial carbonation, although the carbonation doesn't produce anything like a soda water sensation. Finishes dry and cleaner than I would expect.

O - Definitely a good one, although I have to say that at this point Saison and Tripel are both falling in preference next to Dubbels and Quads. I can certainly appreciate this one, but I may be trending away from the style as a whole.

Serving type: on-tap
