I'm not a big fan of the saison style. The saisons are usually a little too dry and a little too funky for my tastes. I didn't have very high hopes for this one; but I was taken in by the allure of the cheap 8 pack of non-twist-off brown bottles (which I'll use for bottling my homebrew). I didn't get much head here. There was very little head to start with and veritably no head retention to speak of. The cloudy, pale color was perfect for a saison and, despite the almost non-existent head, there was adequate effervesence. The smell is lacking. It smells something like wet cardboard and a hint of corriander. I didn't care much for the first sip; but, then, the funkiness at the tail end of it captivated me as I continued drinking it. There's some effervescence...but the mouthfeel is a little oily, thin and cheap. Overall though, I would say this is a very drinkable beer. It isn't too fussy...and, for a cheap beer, it has a surprising complexity...just enough to hold my interest.

Second to last one from the tour variety pack...
Poured into shaker pint; golden straw color with a half-finger clear white head that fades in seconds to a fizzy film of bubbles fed by small, lively carbonation.
Smell is almost the same as all their other ones; smells like light corn and sugar, but it does have a vinous, champagne-like scent.
Taste is all corn and sugar, nothing else. Same sickly-sweet Minhas finish, the vinous quality of the smell isn't present at all in the taste. This is NOT a saison.
Mouthfeel is thin; the carbonation approaches saison but doesn't reach the proper level.
Overall, it's sugary corn-water, that's all this is. If you like generic cheap beer, you could probably stomach this, but if you're looking for a saison, stay away from this one.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Purchased as part of a mix six...split the bottle with my sister-in-law:

A=Medium to light golden, with a bit of murkiness and perhaps a slight greenish tint. Head was white and not very dominant.

S=I didn't notice much...perhaps a cut grass smell.

T=Citrus and very crisp...rather sweet and creamy as well. Reminded me a bit of Blue Moon's Belgian White.

M=Moderate carbonation, perhaps a bit slippery, but overall very drinkable.

O=One of Minhas' better offerings...I would definitely drink again, but probably not buy as it is not quite as good as others out there.
