Its glowing apricot body with straw yellow highlights spells spring. Just over a finger's worth of fluffy white head is perched on top. Bits of sediment drop to the bottom of the glass and stay there, making themselves visible only when held up to the light.

Right when I popped the cork I got a nose full of skunk but thankfully that doesn't last for long. Now, the more whiffs I take the more fruit I pick up such as sweet Anjou pears and soft tangerines. The Belgian yeast only compliments these sweet notes. Fresh cut grass and hay add density to the nose.

Soft and gentle Anjou and tangerine nestle themselves on the middle of the tongue. Their presence is pleasant but not extended. Fresh grass and hints of hay push the sweetness out of the way and move to the sides of the mouth. The grassy notes continue into the finish and become more pungent and earthy. After exhaling, a cracker-like character is apparent and does well at not letting the grassy character become too assertive. The yeast doesn't play a major part in the taste but provides a nice base from start to finish.

I'm content with calling this light bodied even though it does have a bit more depth. The balance between the grassy/hay side and the fruity/yeasty side is fantastic and I really appreciate this. There's a great level of carbonation; cleaning out the palate and leaving me with an enjoyably dry finish.

From start to finish, this is a wonderful Saison. I'm glad I was able to try such a traditional take on the style. Like nearly every other Saison I've had, it took me some time to appreciate its nuances and complexities and that's pleasurable in itself.

This beer is a hazy golden color with a foamy one finger head. This beer smells crisp and clean with a tart green apple finish. The taste is dry and has a mild astringent taste. Despite this, this beer would be a perfect compliment to a hot summer day (as traditionally intended), even though I am drinking it on a cold day in January. The crispness of this beer is seriously impressive. The carbonation is soft and provides a mellowness to compliment the borderline sourness of the beer. The body is light. This beer goes down very nicely, however the astringent and sour tastes create a struggle on some gulps. Very good beer.
