3.93/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy orange with lots of effervescence and a white two finger head.

Aroma: Yeast, sweet syrup, clove.

Taste: Like a mild Tripel. Nice blend of spices with some apple and pear. A hint of belgian candi sryup. None of the 7.7% ABV present in the flavor.

Mouthfeel: Just below medium in body with maximum carbonation. Easy drinking.

Final Thoughts: An enjoyable Saison. Light in body and mild in flavor. Would I drink it again? Probably not because I'm not a huge fan of the style but I would highly recommend it to anyone who is.

Poured chilled into a fluted tulip.

Pours a nice hazy straw color with an inch+ airy white head that slowly recedes leaving a nice surface layer and nice lacing.

A mild spicy, fruity aroma.

Flavors of pepper, cloves, citrus and a musty earthiness in the background.

A medium bodied beer with a crisp finish and moderate to heavy carbonation.

A nicely balanced if fairly tame example of the style. I prefer my saisons with a little more of that farmhouse funk to them.
