A: Yellow-gold color; nice head packed with small, tightly packed bubbles
S: Strong smell of grains of paradise; additional notes of anise, coriander and orange. Slightly musty.
M: Medium body; slightly coating on the mouth, dry in the middle
T: Grassy, well carbonated, spicy. Something in there made me think of hard apple cider.

12oz to a snifter, best by 12/15

Pours straw yellow with three fingers of head. Each bottle from this 4 pack has had a ridiculous amount of foam for some reason. Anyway, high carbonation, slightly cloudy, good lacing and unfortunately in my case retention 3/5

Smells pretty typical of a saison. Dominantly lemon with notes of pepper, clove, funk, and a bit of alcohol 4/5

Taste is pretty spot on with the nose. Strong lemon with notes of pepper and clove. Finishes with a nice touch of funk, with a hint of alcohol 4/5

Feel is a light body, very mild bitterness, very crisp finish. Alcohol is concealed well, easy to drink 4.25/5

Overall a really solid saison. Nothing too special about it, no major flaws, pretty well crafted 4/5

Poured from a Bottle that had chilled in the fridge for about an hour. A very hazy deep amber color was present in the glass at first but cleared up some as it sat. The taste is very vibrant in the mouth and consists of several zingy citrus fruits, a light hoppy character in the middle with a reminiscence of wheat grain, and finishes beautifully in a cascade of flavors that dance around the mouth well after swallowing. Personally, not my kind of flavored but a lot of care and attention has clearly been put into the brewing process for this one.
