Appearance - 4.25/5
Pours a nice golden color. A large amount of head remains for quite a while after pouring. Can see the carbonation flowing rapidly to the top. Fairly clear.

Smell - 4/5
A fruity tartness. A bit of spiciness and yeastiness as well, a smell common to many Saisons I have had.

Taste - 3.75/5
Tartness, perhaps tasting of apples or plums. Along with the standard bready and spicy tastes that seem fairly standard among Saisons.

Mouthfeel - 3.5/5
More creamy than crisp. Medium to heavy in body. The carbonation is a little light for my liking. Smooth.

Overall - 3.75/5
A decent Saison. Saisons are not a style I am particularly fond of, but this one was better than most.

Draft. Poured a golden light orange. Smells of citrus - orange peel maybe? A little ginger? No head. In the mouth this is an extremely mellow saison. Most taste like a dirt barn door but this one has hints of sugar, sweetness, citrus and hoppiness. Extremely light and drinkable. bubbles. DANGEROUS. It is a high ABV (7.7%) and you could drink several easily. They should change the name to Thor's Hammer! Really tasty and light. Definitely a true Belgian style saison. Like it a lot.
