Pours a gold with light haze and some visible yeast. Big, rocky white head with great retention. Visible effervescence.
Big fruity aromas. Starts off with banana and green apple. Hint of citrus. A touch of spiciness (not sure if it was yeast based or hop driven). Low diacetyl. Good but marked down due to diacetyl.
Well balanced with moderate malts playing against strong yeast esters and a light but decisive hop bitterness. Not much tartness really going on. Medium-dry finish, a bit peppery in terms of flavour. Very well integrated alcohol. Good aftertaste. Diacetyl builds in presence as the beer warms.
Medium-full body with moderately high carbonation. Warming alcohol. Not as refreshing as it could be but not entirely unexpected due to the high alcohol content.
A good beer but it doesn't strike me as the perfect Saison. Nonetheless, a tasty beer with plenty of nice flavour which is the the general mould of a Saison. Well structured and worth a try.

A large, off-white head crowns this bright orange brew.
An array of light fruits and must flow out of the glass. Deeper inspection reveals more fruits, including orange, lemon, pear, and white grapes. Complex is as complex does. Rotten rind, peat, and faint spice complete the perfect circle.
Fruity (more orange, lemon and pear), spicy, full-bodied, creamier than expected, and lacking nothing I can think of. Has a bit of grain and yeast to finish. Vanilla is noticed as it warms. Alcohol hits and dissapears quickly.
Fabulous example of a "big" Saison.
