Golden amber with a generous white frothy head that lasts a long time. Fresh bakery bread aroma with pepper and slight citrus, lemon. Taste is mostly fresh bread with after notes of fresh spice, lemon and pepper. Just like the aroma suggests. Nice bitterness at the back of the tongue that stays for a long time. Recommended!

Appearance - 4.25/5
Pours a nice golden color. A large amount of head remains for quite a while after pouring. Can see the carbonation flowing rapidly to the top. Fairly clear.

Smell - 4/5
A fruity tartness. A bit of spiciness and yeastiness as well, a smell common to many Saisons I have had.

Taste - 3.75/5
Tartness, perhaps tasting of apples or plums. Along with the standard bready and spicy tastes that seem fairly standard among Saisons.

Mouthfeel - 3.5/5
More creamy than crisp. Medium to heavy in body. The carbonation is a little light for my liking. Smooth.

Overall - 3.75/5
A decent Saison. Saisons are not a style I am particularly fond of, but this one was better than most.

Weighting: Appearance 15%, Smell 15%, Taste 35%, Mouthfeel 15%, Overall 20%
