4.36/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: It has a nice hazy light golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice thick white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of lemon, citrus, peppery spices, cloves and belgian yeast.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some lemon upfront with some citrus notes, cloves, some pepper and some yeast.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium/high carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas. Very refreshing on a hot day.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750ml bomber into a Fantôme snifter.

A: Very golden, attractive.

S: Classic saison.

T: Clean, crisp, belgian saison. Almost perfect taste, and definitely hitting the nail on the head for a widely-available, higher-alcohol saison.

M: Light enough for the warmer months and yet warming enough for fall.

O: A fantastic belgian farmhouse saison. Of the 4 saisons I've had, this is certainly up there among the best of 'em. Highly recommended.

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured two fingers of head on a cloudy, light straw colored body.
The aroma is spicy with banana, orange peal and lemon. Pretty good.
The taste is great. Leads with spice, mild bitterness with a touch of sweetness to round it out.
Medium body with a fizzy texture but the carbonation stays in a nice range.
A great saison.
