4.09/5 rDev -1.7%
Pours a slightly cloudy golden amber. There is a layer of off white head. Has a pils like note in the nose along with some Belgian spice. More Belgian spice in the taste along with a pleasant sweetness. Just a bit herbal with a slight bitterness in the finish. Light and quite nice. The carbonation level is a bit high,

3.93/5 rDev -5.5%
Appearance: Hazy orange with lots of effervescence and a white two finger head.
Aroma: Yeast, sweet syrup, clove.
Taste: Like a mild Tripel. Nice blend of spices with some apple and pear. A hint of belgian candi sryup. None of the 7.7% ABV present in the flavor.
Mouthfeel: Just below medium in body with maximum carbonation. Easy drinking.
Final Thoughts: An enjoyable Saison. Light in body and mild in flavor. Would I drink it again? Probably not because I'm not a huge fan of the style but I would highly recommend it to anyone who is.

Poured chilled into a fluted tulip.
Pours a nice hazy straw color with an inch+ airy white head that slowly recedes leaving a nice surface layer and nice lacing.
A mild spicy, fruity aroma.
Flavors of pepper, cloves, citrus and a musty earthiness in the background.
A medium bodied beer with a crisp finish and moderate to heavy carbonation.
A nicely balanced if fairly tame example of the style. I prefer my saisons with a little more of that farmhouse funk to them.
