look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pint Bottle poured into beer clean glass.

A- Pours a two finger bright white head which settles into a nice cap after a minute. Very good sticky white lacing. Body is golden yellow with ample fine sediment.

S- A definite lemon and pepper on the nose as well as some coriander and clove. I get a little bit of the characteristic yeasty saison yeast and some definite sweetness.

T- Starts out with ample lemon, some coriander, orange peel and just a little bit of yeast on the finish which eventually dries out. I wish I got a lot more yeasty character here.

M- Low carbonation. Smooth Finish.

O- I had this on another occasion and remembered much more yeasty saison characteristic. Either way, this is a good beer I would enjoy again in the future.

Whew. This tastes like I am biting into a pile of herbs or something. It's way overboard, and the saison tones are quite soapy. No balance at all here. I think that after recently trying Liopard Oir, my standards for a saison have been refreshed in my mind. Unfortunately, this comes nowhere close. A miss, in my book.

Pours a dark golden yellow with a foamy white head. Smell is lemon, clove, pepper, some yeast. Taste is clove, lemon zest, pepper, and some yeast. Mouthfeel is light , good carbonation, lots of flavor. The lemon lingers in the aftertaste. Overall a powerful beer, interesting flavors but a bit overpowering for my tastes.

Hrd to keep the chunky sediment out of the glass. Pretty good bubbling and a strong film of foam that leaves some sticky lace and for almost all sixteen ounces.

Earthy, Spring fruit nose. Smells yeasty and dry with a just hint of melon.

Pretty sweet, yeasty flavor to this saison. One of the sweetest of memory. Dry banana and melon mixed in a light earthy melange of sweet toasted malt and soft hopping.

Palate is carbonated, but not as bubbly as I like in my saisons. Palate is dry yet oily on teh back of the tongue.

Serving type: 16-ounce bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a tulip. The color is very hazy gold. Around two fingers of off-white head dissipated to leave a thin lacing and ring around the edge.

Smell: Tame Belgian farmhouse funk lets fruity notes of orange, lemon, and grapefruit shine. It also has sweet apple and clove/pepper spice; it is very reminiscent of hefeweizen. Funky hefeweizen, that is.

Taste: It offers a surprising kick of spice to the back of the throat. The effect reminds me of curry but the flavor is more like white pepper. The other flavors create a well-balanced mélange and nothing really stands out like it does in the smell: light funk, orange, lemon, grapefruit, and spicy clove.

Drinkability: I am impressed. This may have turned me into a fan of saison.
