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

Got the 750ml corked bottle at Whole Foods in Vienna, Virginia. Enjoying it in my hotel room out of a tumbler glass.

Slightly murky straw yellow body with lots of fine to medium carbonation. Fine white head of just a finger that stabilizes at a thin layer. Some nice lacings.

Smell is citric and peppery, there is ginger and some fruitiness added by the orange peel.

Typical Saison dryness with quite some spiciness to it, almost hot. Bitterness is there but hops are not standing out

Plentiful carbonation makes this refreshing, crisp and palate cleansing. It ends with said hotness that comes probably from used ginger and grains of paradise.

This is a well done maybe even great Saison. It is refreshing, dry and interesting due to the added spices that give it dept. In my personal opinion I believe it could be made even better if the flavor would rely more on the yeast than on the spices, furthermore it is a bit sharp due to the high carbonation.

It think it would work with a lot of spicy foods. Actually it's probably even better when combined with food than on its own.
