Ooooohhhh man. This is a good one. Poured chilled from a big 750 mL bottle into a tulip glass on a 90-degree June day.

Massive four-finger, fluffy white head atop a body that's a cloudy straw color. I can see yeast sediments! (I love yeast sediment.)

The scent is full of grainy yeast, bananas and green apples, cloves, ginger, and sweet, buttery corn, believe it or not. An outstanding combination.

It tastes straightforward and GOOD. Yeasty, sweet white bread infused with a bit of dry, fruity tartness.

The feel is totally crisp and refreshing. That's all.

An awesome saison and fantastic American take on a Belgian ale style. It's easy to see why it's so popular. I could enjoy this anytime, but like people say, it's ESPECIALLY nice in the sweltering heat.

Aroma: Moderate clove and white pepper aromas up front. Background fruity esters that remind me of fresh cut musk melon and cantaloupe. Possibly some earthy hop aromatics.

Appearance: Cloudy amber pour with a fluffy white cap that retains well.

Flavor: More ripe melons, slightly peppery, mild clove. Earthy hop bitterness balances out the light crackery malt base. Balance is to the spiciness/bitterness. Finish is very clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and spritzy. Carbonic bite is appropriate. No alcohol heat, creaminess, or astringency.

Overall impression: Well crafted and well worth the hype. Not my favorite style but I can understand why it gets good press.

Served in a Samuel Adams Sensory Perfect Pint glass. Hazy straw with 2 fingers of creamy, white head that settles onto a foamy cap that lasts throughout. Spicy aroma - mostly clove and pepper - with a hint of fruitiness. Lots of Belgian yeast character. Tart upfront and through the finish. Nicely balanced. Light bodied and crisp with effervescent carbonation. Finishes dry with a slight bitterness. Well balanced and extremely flavorful. Highly recommended.
