look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A- Huge white head forms immediately and sticks. Cloudy golden beer underneath. Yellowy straw- Perfection of the farmhouse look. TONS of tiny bubbles constantly rising.

S- Light smells- banana and clove in a beautiful balance. Rich.

T- Perfection of floral nose leading to a lightly sour sweetness, with a completely dry finish.

M- Grows in your mouth... the thick head is washed down by light beer with big flavor, and the small bubbles move all around, spreading the taste and aftertaste. Bites with carbonation and finishes quick and dry, leaving your mouth ready for another sip.

O- The best farmhouse saison I have tried thus far. Perfection in the melding of flavor and feel- the light yeastiness, flowers and spice and the perfectly dry finish make it top shelf champagne in the form of beer.

A- Slightly hazed straw pale yellow in color. A pleasant white head, very lofty in appearance , long lasting with some sporadic lacing.

S- Really estery and sweet smelling and a fair amount of spices, more hops than I'm use to in a Saison, fine by me though! Quite boozy as well.

T- Picking up a lot of the flavors from the yeast. Lots of bubblegum and spice initially, a slightly sweet mid mouth moves towards a tart hoppy finish.

M- Medium body, sharp carbonation, goes down clean and super easy.

O- Not my favorite Saison but I'm glad I got to try it.

Pours a murky golden yellow with a 1 inch foamy white head that settles to a thin cap. Foamy streaks of lace form on the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, spices, and Belgian yeast. There is also a bit of an unknown fruity aroma. Taste is of grains, spices, fruits, and some Belgian yeast. There is a slight funky bitterness after each sip. This beer has a high level of carbonation with a very crisp and clean mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good saison that is very lively and refreshing.
