A: Pours a bubbly translucent golden color, with a fair amount of porous white head. Uneven clumps retain on the surface and leave pleasant groups of lacing.

S: Light funk and grassy/earthy hops, with a honey backdrop.

T: Balanced sweetness with a mild hoppy near-citrus note through the mid-palate. Finish is dry with the citrus hint lingering. The alcohol is barely noticeable.

M: Medium body, medium smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice warm weather beer, if a bit strong. I'd get it again.

12 oz bottle straight from the Brewery, poured into a tulip glass.

What a head! Thick, many fingers deep, and it isn't going anywhere. Golden straw colored body, moderate clarity, and plenty of tiny bubbles.

The entire brewery grounds smelled a lot like this beer on the day I visited. Citrus, coriander, hay, a little banana, and possibly even horse blanket.

The taste is refreshing, and leans towards the dry side. This is good, as I'm not a huge fan of overly sweet saisons. Earthy yeast, a mild banana and clove is met by black pepper on the dry finish. Citrus hops lightly float above the other flavors. The mouthfeel is nothing spectacular. Wet, with a decent body, and a crispness that well accentuates the drier aspects of the taste.

Probably my favorite saison to date, and one that I hope to come back to sometime. Well balanced, with a nice flavor profile.

A - Straw colored, exceptionally clear, with a large frothy white head. Huge amounts of carbonation keep the head strong while drinking.

S - Spice, apple, a bit of hay.

T - The spicy phenols come through first, some noble hop flavor, light malt, very crisp devoid of sweetness, ends with a slight alcohol flavor.

M - Light and refreshing.

O - Very good saison, one to enjoy outside on a hot summer day.
