A -- Hazy-golden-yellow. Four finger head that lasts.
S -- clover, honey, orange zest, coriander. Yeasty
T -- follows the smell, clover, honey and straw yielding to pear, coriander and finishing with a granny smith crispness.
M -- light bodied with champagne-like carbonation
O -- This is one of my favorites and by far the best I've tasted from that brewery. It is well balanced and really a refreshing beer with A LOT of flavor complexity.

A--Cloudy, golden yellow. Big head that sticks around for a while
S--honey, orange zest, coriander. Belgian yeast scent is lighter than expected, with some pear coming in nicely
T--sweet, fruity, yeast with a little saison funkiness
M--light body with a fairly low carbonation
O--This is one of my favorites. I find it to be very well balanced and really a refreshing beer with a lot of flavors going on. Whether you want to argue its a farmhouse/saison or a belgian strong ale it doesn't matter--this is a great beer that I will get again for sure
