Spicy, medium bodied saison. More yeast than I'm used to. Very good.

Poured from Bottle into Pint glass.

Pours a fairly clear yellow-orange with a huge, crackled head that is slow to dissolve and never fully does. Strong spices dominate the aroma, Belgian yeast, clove, some flowery/spicy hops. Flavor is sweet upfront and followed by more driven spices and an alcohol warmth. Its light-medium bodied with a prickly carbonation. This has a great wealth of spices in both the aroma and the flavor that some people might find a little overpowering but I thought it worked nicely with the slight grassy/spicy hops.

Hazy pour with a formidable off-white head. Clean, crisp grain smell dominates the nose and is complemented by an interesting cinnamon-like spiciness. Those scents carry over nicely to the taste, which is characterized by a good combination of sweet, crisp grains and a spicy bite of clove. Eventually fades to a warm finish. Good, clean mouthfeel. Once the novelty of this refreshing offering wears, you are left with a good but not great pale ale.
