Misc.: Best by Aug. 14, 2014
Poured a golden, straw, semi-clear color with 4-to-5 fingers of pillowy white head. Good deal of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Good amount of foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Thick, foamy retention on the top of the glass all the way down.
Smelled a pleasant variety of notes on the nose. Got cloves, tropical notes, grape, kiwi, sour apple, sour fruit, sweet floral notes, caramel, honey, light banana bread and faint peppery spices. Pretty lovely.
Tasted not quite as good as the smell, which would be difficult anyway. First thing I noticed was the alcohol. Not as hidden as I would have thought from a Saison. Got tropical notes, kiwi, green apple, green grape, sour fruits, honey, floral notes, banana bread, caramel and unknown lingering Belgian spices.
Light body. Oily texture. Lively-to-average carbonation. Long, astringent finish.
I wavered between an overall rating of 3.75 and 4.00, but the latter got the nod. The smell was fantastic.

This saison swings more toward the French style. Greater clarity than the Belgian type. Good bitterness, perhaps about 50 to 60 IBUs, with a mild Goldings nose and some more citrusy type of hop, like Columbus. Good hop complement to the more orange citrus profile of what I'm guessing is a French saison yeast, like Wyeast 3711. Sweet start and sweet finish, no tartness or barnyard funk, saved from stickiness by the high bitterness levels. Also, a bit of alcohol on the finish. Thick, long-lasting head. Generally refreshing as a strong French saison should be.
