This beer oured a nice peach color with cotton candy lite fluffy head. The head lasted the whole glass, including a 2nd pour to finish off the bomber size bottle. The aromas of spring flowers hit my nose and filled my head before I could take a sip. While, at first, I didn't "get" the Belgian beer style, I continue to drink them, hitting on some good ones and gaining appreciation for the bolder ones. This beer would be the perfect introduction to the Belgian beers as it is not overshelming, yet is very complex

The flavors consisted of fruity, tropical flavors like bannana, pomegranade, pears and figs, it had a smooth and easy drinking texture that finished with a nice hop dry feel with some sweetness around the edges, like a nice dessert wine. This was served rather cold from my fridge and as the glass warmed, all of the above aromas and flavors grew until the last sip.

This beer is alive inside! After popping the cork and pouring into the glass, the head is alive! Frothyness lasted quite some time until it rested. The beer is a hazy golden colour, tastes of citrus come to the palate. After the beer warms close to room temp, there are hints of mild hoppiness. Overall a pleasant, refreshing brew to savor!

I felt this beer was a bit overrated. It was tasty but nothing about it really stood out to me. It smells a bit like honey and looks attractive in a glass. It has an interesting mouthfeel with a crisp flavor. There are hints of spice, grain and a tiny bit of hops in a sip. The finish is dry but its light enough to be drinkable. When thinking back on my first experience with this style, I remembered enjoying Dupont more. However, I'd have to try it again to explain what I liked about that brew. Although considering the quality I was surprised to see this was a domestic beer. I have a feeling I need to try more Saisons to see if my bias is against the style rather than the brewery.
