Yellow, slightly golden, with a white cloud of head floating on top. Good lacing.

Smell is ripe pears and yeast.

Taste is a little heartier. Lots of good hay and yeast. Pears are more muted. Sweeter and less dry than some saisons. Spice is not obvious. Creamy but light.

A-Pours a hazed yellow color. Giant, growing frothy head. Head retains forever but surprisingly doesn't leave too much lacing.

S-Grass and lemons. Yeast and a musty aromas. Light spices with some pepper. Sturdy aroma that displays that 'hard to describe' aroma of a Saison.

T-Lighter than expected. Grass and hay and other farm-like flavors. Barnyard funk is found too. Lemony citrus and Beligan yeast. Enjoyable flavor albeit a bit too mellow for my taste. But man does it go down quick and easy.

M-Lighter bodied. Bunches of carbonation. Grassy aftertaste lingers for a bit. Very drinkable due to the feel and body.

O/D-I can see why this is such a popular Saison. I enjoyed it but was not taken back by the flavor. Solid but it lacks something in my opinion. Still a great drink, especially for those new to the style.

4.13/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

11.2oz brown (yay!) bottle, with an indecipherable (to me) freshness code on the back. Poured into a New Belgium globe.

A: Pours relatively clear until the sediment hits...pale golden color with lots of soft white head lacing and tons of effervescence.

S: Belgian; light banana, grass, spices...bread. Touches of sweetness and hints of funk.

T: Nice dryness, more spices on the flavor...clove...earthy and herbal in a way. Refreshing, Very simple but well crafted.

MF: Light, effervescent, refreshing mouthfeel. A good amount of dryness to keep things interesting.

O: Really solid Farmhouse Ale. Pairs great with game bird. Not overly funky or overwhelmingly Belgian, just solid and approachable.

3.18/5  rDev -23.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Golden, cloudy. Head is white, stays thick, decent lacing.

Smell: Belgian yeast. Reminds me of Stella almost exactly. No hop or malt flavor really.

Taste: follows the nose. Stella to a T.

Mouthfeel: dry, good amount of carbonation.

Overall: Way to expensive for essentially Stella.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter on Christmas day.

Appearance: semi-opaque, lemon-yellow. Off-white 2 finger head that stays for lunch. Thick lacing.

Smell: Belgian funk is in town. Yeasty, citrus-y (lemons); earthy.

Taste: Light, crisp, clean with a lemon-y citrus bite. Dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Heavy; frothy. Some of the best carbonation I've tasted.

Overall: A pure, excellent saison. Even better as it warms.

375ml bottle poured into a tulip.

A: Light orange/yellow straw color. Pretty hazy. Big three finger cloud like white head with amazing retention and sticky lacing.

S: Very yeasty. Awesome funk that is light enough to let other aromas shine through. Getting some citrus, slight tart apples, lemon, and touches of grapefruit. Smells a little grainy. Pretty complex. Awesome smelling Saison.

T: Grain and yeast upfront. A funky citrus comes through next with a nice sour/tart/funky apple flavor. A touch of spice. Light floral hop notes.

M: Light bodied. High carbonation. Super crisp. Super dry.

O: Awesome Saison. The best I've had. Very drinkable. Everything just works in this beer.
