Pour hazy burn orange in color with a 1 finger white head that has decent retention.

Nose is interesting, some nice sour lemon phenols from the Belgium yeast along with an interesting ginger note. Smells very refreshing.

Malt is fairly light in this brew and is overshadowed by the Belgium yeast. There is a slight Belgium/farmhouse funk but nothing to intense. Hops are detected on the exhale and are very mellow.

Mouthfeel is good, lots of carbonation and a good stickiness that give it a nice body

A: thin head on a cloudy dull golden body. occasional scattered spot of lacing.

S: I like the aroma its just not very Belgian. Notes include clove, anise, citrus mostly pineapple and some grains.

T: clove, lemon tartness, a little belgian yeast and club soda in the finish with also a bitter, metallic taste late.

M: light to medium body and very high carbonation. not as dry a finish as I want.

Overall: It wasnt a bad beer just not very Belgian or funky. I want more of the barnyard, yeast style of saison.

A - Pours with a small head of white foam on a hazy, golden body. The head settles at a moderate pace and leaves light lace.

S - Musty yeast, wheat, and notes of clove.

T - Sweet malt up front with an anise note in the middle. Some clove and nutmeg in the middle with a finish of spices, a touch of citrus, and mild hops.

M - Medium thick body, moderately high carbonation, and a slightly dry finish.

D - Not my cup of tea, the spice character is robust, but quite odd.
