[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a cloudy golden yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white fluffy head that reduced down to a medium cap and had excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a light grain malt, floral and grassy hops and a funky Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), green apple, and a bit of spice.
The taste was lightly sweet and rather creamy with a hint of citrus, and a mild fruity ester from the onset, progressing into a mild bitter yeasty taste with a light spicy finish. The flavor stuck around for a little while with the spicy fruity taste left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a creamy and slightly dry texture and a mild carbonation.
Overall a nice crisp tasting brew with all components working harmoniously together, which did a great job of concealing the high somewhat ABV making this one very enjoyable drinking experience...

Reviewing after the fact. 750 poured in to pint glass.
Great color, great head. Wonderful retention and lacing. Not quite as bright on the nose as you would expect a Belgian, but still the spiciness and tangy, straw/hey characters you want. This thing is almost dead on the money for flavor profile. The yeast compliments this brew nicely and I'm digging the subtle hop character. Some brewers use an overbearing yeast strain on the malts, but not this, and the Champagne yeast used for condition really drys it up nicely. Nice carbonation in the mouth. Drying, warming, tingling spiciness.
What a great brew that I almost passed up on. If you like the Saison/Farmhouse/Belgian style, pick it up.
