A: Carbonation straight-up shot the cap off, super-bubbly with a hazy golden color (3/3)
S: Clove and BANANA are strong, with an earthy yeast character as well. A little bit of black pepper in there too.(9/12)
T: Somewhat acrid and citric in the beginning though the familiar earthy yeast and sweetness come in toward the end (17/20)
M: Bubbly but wet with a lightly dry finish (4/5)
O: A very clean saison (7/10)

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.
