4.6/5  rDev +10.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: A slightly hazy gold, with carbonation still very visible through the haze. It poured with a beautiful 2 and a half finger head that retained very well throughout.

Smell: Very clearly a Belgian. Lots of spice and flora on the nose, and very inviting.

Taste: Delicious. A very well-balanced saison, combining the spiciness of the Belgian yeast with light citrus notes (mandarin oranges) and a nice dry finish.

Fell: Very well-carbonated and easy to drink. The moderate ABV level is well-hidden by the complex yet approachable flavors presented in the beer.

A delicious example of an American saison. Very easy to drink, yet still complex enough to provide you something to mull over if yo want to.

750ml poured into a Waterford Crystal Esprit Goblet as my girlfriend looked on with amusement.

a: a finger and a half of white fluffy head that looked as though it was spooned in rather than poured. Pale, semiclear golden color beer. Excellent head retention and sexy lacing.

s: I started to smell this beer as it poured...a spicy honey and muted grain aroma.

t: Lots of different flavors here...reminds me of a convalescent. Lemon, honey and clove with just enough alcohol and a peppery nuttiness finishes.

mf: A little more than medium in body with yeast bits as I let some in the pour. Very smooth with good carbonation.

o: A very complex brew. And a very nice beer to go with homemade pretzels. And a good reason to break out the crystal.
