A - alightly cloudy gold. Big 2 finger head that doesnt go anywhere, big soapy bubbles.

S - yeast, sweet bubblegum. similar to a few weiss biers i've had lately.

T - mild sweet bubblegum that has spice in the background that makes it more enjoyable. slightly dry. crisp. hops are there but their bitterness is mixed with the dryness so it's hard to differentiate, but definitely refreshing and enjoyable.

M - Carbonation is definitely refreshing, but not overwhelming with too much of it. Slight sweet syrup touch, slick, i'd say.

O - didnt quite live up to the hype for me, but this is just my second saison. If I would drink it again, It'd be on a hot summer day and I would've had it nearly ice cold.

Not sure if it's worth the steep price.

Poured from bottle into a snifter glass. It had an awesome foamy head. It almost covered half my glass and remained that way for a good 5 minutes (I poured gently into the glass). The color is a cloudy or hazy yellow (like most Belgium beers); nothing can be seen on the other side of the glass except light. Lacings were present.

I smelled cloves, other spices, gingerbread and some apricots. I do get ripen bananas as well!

It taste great. It has a fruity flavor yet it was not too sweet like I expected it to be. I have to admit this is my first Saison beer. There is an equal of sweetness and bitterness which makes this great. It also had that spiciness that came with the smell of cloves and other spices.

I opened this bottle in March but I have read that it is really refreshing to indulge during the summer months. I do think this beer complements well with all seasons. Drinking it right now felt like a perfect occasion. It could be opened on a cold rainy day or on a hot sunny day. Best drink cold before the beverage warms up if drinking on a hot day.

Got from the Whole Foods Market in Northridge

Served in a Tulip Glass

Appearance - pale straw like color. Hazy, with plenty of carbonation, and about a finger of moderately diminishing head

Aroma- floral citrusy hops. Belgian candied yeast. Banana and spice

Taste- fruits like banana,pears, and apples. Candied sugar and clove spice.

Mouthfeel - light to medium bodied. Plenty of carbonation slight dry finish. Crisp!

Overall- great example of the style that I would definitely recommend. Very refreshing
