2.7/5 rDev -30.2%
Pours an orangish gold with a short-lived, fizzy white cap. After a few brief moments, it looks like a glass of apple juice.
The nose is dominated by bubble gum aromas. A slight suggestion of clove-like yeast. A bit of funky fresh barnyard stuff.
The taste takes the same direction but the bubble gum isn't quite so pungent - it is, still, the lead player though. There's some other grassy bits and spicy notes as well.
Very little carbonation - exceedingly drinkable but just not working for me.
I wish these bottles had dates as I suspect this one is past its prime.

Not a bad beer by any means, but sadly lacking in the unique flavors that characterize a saison. A definite Belgian character, no doubt, but more along the lines of a Belgian pale strong ale. Bright and well carbonated with some sharp flavor notes, but missing any of the funkier flavor aspects that Saisons bring to the party.

This poured out as a hazy golden color with a fizzy white head on top. The lacing was minimal but the retention was constant. The smell of the beer is light, not much really stands out on the nose. Some light grains and Belgian yeast on the nose, some subtle hops also. The taste of the beer gets better as it warms up. There is some subtle spice in there as well as some earthy grains and hops. The mouthfeel is generously carbonated with a dry bubbly finish. Overall this Saison is decent but not one of my favorites.
