This saison pours, like many, with a big, thick head that clings to the side of your glass. That is a good thing. The color was golden and rather cloudy.

The nose was full of spiciness and fruit. There was a slight hoppiness to it, and a little bit of malty biscuit in there as well.

The first thing I noticed was that this has a very dry finish, almost no aftertaste present. Lots of fruit and hops present in the front. Slight medicinal, though not unpleasant, coating leads to a medium mouthfeel. Lots of pepper and spiciness throughout, which is welcomed. This paired very nicely with an artichoke/prosciutto risotto. I'd recommend this to any saison fan.

Fully hazed orange, I couldn't avoid pouring the yeast. Fluffy, frothy white head leaves some nice rings on the glass as it drops to a thick whipped topping. The nose is herbal spicy yeast and a powdery sweetness. Dried bananas, yellow cake, and a hint of incense...perfectly Belgian. Flavors of bitter orange and light fruity yeast. Leafy hops and gentle sweetness. Medium-light bodied...smooth, seemingly getting creamier as its sits in the glass. Classic Belgian beer all around. A great choice anytime, very drinkable.
