4.41/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Thick, pure white head with lovely lacing. The beer itself is a pale golden color, full of carbonation, and translucent.

S - Sugar, candy, a bit of a wine-like aroma. Some honey and yeast.

T - Very sweet, yet still light. Full of light malt and yeast flavors, and a slight aftertaste (not at all unpleasant). A hint of wine flavor cold; as it warms, it becomes mellower.

M - Medium to light. Slightly syrupy, coats the mouth.

O - This is similar to a Belgian Pale Ale, but lighter. It's a very good beer, and definitely enjoyable on a scorching hot day. The ABV is a little high for a "refreshing" drink, but you certainly don't notice as you're drinking. Overall, not a particularly complex drink, but definitely one I'd have again.

3.66/5  rDev -11.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: A slightly hazy true yellow, with a foamy white head that persists like a barricade. The head was something I found myself having to fight through, but I know it's typical of the style. I expected the color to be slightly darker.

Smell: The aroma is light, yet beckoning, and typical of a saison. The main smells were of apricot and biscuit malt, and were accompanied by a breath of spicy hops.

Taste: A thirst-quenching blend of light malt, citrus fruit, sprinkled spices, and honey. A somewhat dry finish leaves little aftertaste at first, then suddenly gives way to a smattering of hops that have been gently warmed by alcohol. Very true to style.

Mouthfeel: The beer's medium-light mouthfeel and high carbonation is refreshing...once you claw your tongue past the seemingly never-ending foam party that is the head.

Overall: A very pleasant saison, but overall, nothing terribly special. I was a teensy bit irritated by the fact that I had to fight through the fizzy head to get to the liquid, no matter how much time went by or exactly how I poured the brew. Not sure I would seek it out in the future, but I certainly wouldn't turn it down. Next time, I'll drink it straight from the bottle to avoid the foam clouds.
