On-tap at O'Brien's yesterday, served in a pint glass. Bright irridescent yellow-amber with 1/2 inch of snow white frothy head. If looks could kill...a very handsome looking light beer, light in color, not in taste.

The smell is very fresh and sweet. Sweet malt, corriander, spicy and fruity, very complex and absolutely smells Belgian.

Very sweet initially, bubblegum, corriander, Belgian candi-sugar, this is really tasty, super fresh and a great representation of this style. I'm thinkin it's the most enjoyable Saison I may have ever tasted.

Medium plus in body with great head retention and the complexity of a fine Belgian, I'm craving one right now. Smooth creamy mouthfeel with a nice amount of alcohol to complement this brew, very enjoyable on-tap, cheers!

a - deep hazy gold; huge head that dissipates slowly leaving a little lace

s - hoppy aroma, hints of citrus

t - similar to the aroma, hops and yeast, citrus, bitterness, dry aftertaste

m - lots of carbonation in the mouth, creamy too

d - very drinkable, although I wouldn't probably do much more than one 750ml bottle.

This was my very first Saison.
Poured from the 750 into a pint glass. Golden and bubbly, a finger of white head.

Smell is interesting, grassy and lemon maybe a little banana.

Taste is fairly sweet, definitely lemon, a little yeasty and tart. Some tropical fruit flavors follow, with just a little spice on the tail end.

Mouthfeel is great, lighter and bubbly very refreshing.

Drinkability is great, normally I would only give a 5 to a hopbomb, but I could easily drink a gallon of this and feel great.

A - Clear golden color with a fair amount of bubble action. Above average sized, foamy, bubbly, sticky, soapy, white head. Pretty good retention

S - Plenty of spices (corriander, clove, pepper, etc.). Fair amount of funk and some tartness. A touch of golden fruit as well with a lot of apple (tart) and a touch of lemon. Some sweet malt and grain in the background. An overtone of herbal and medicinal phenol aroma as well.

T - Starts sweet with some pale and a touch of bready malt taste. Then the spices really come out (see above). Some apple and other golden fruit comes out mid sip, but other than apple they don't last long. Along with the spiciness, a touch of alcohol adds a bit of heat as well. Some sweetness lingers, but so does a good amount of spice. A touch of earthy and herbal hop bitterness comes out toward the end. Some funk and mustiness are also present.

M - Lighter side of medium body with a good amount of carbonation. Fairly smooth going down, but it has a bit of a drying finish.

D - A nice, easy to drink saison. Alcohol is pretty well hidden with just a bit coming out. Pretty good mix of spices, sweetness, and bitter. Quite refreshing.

Notes: Nice saison with a good balance and mix of spice, sweetness and bitterness. Very easy to drink and quite refreshing. Definitely recommend trying this at least once.
