4.26/5  rDev +6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

General: I got this bottle from a friend who is also into craft beer. This was allowed to breath and warm up for a couple of minutes before pouring into my Ballast Point tulip glass.

Appearance: very light color IMHO for a saison, it's a very light gold color, almost a yellow. the head is white and light and frothy. Lots of little tiny bubbles that seem to last for a good few minutes. Really good lacing as this one is enjoyed too. The color just seems too light to me, give me a little more color with a saison!

Aroma: The aroma is crazy on this, when I was pouring I could smell this beer without even leaning in towards it. Lots of nice little spices with this beer. I get a lot of the typical belgian yeast phenols including light clove, a touch of banana and what I think is coriander. There is a slight bubblegum aroma to this also. This is a really enjoyable aroma, no peppery spice like some saisons, I'm a fan.

Mouthfeel: This has a nice mouthfeel, it's moderate, right about in the middle of the range in general. The carbonation is high on this, each sip seems to erupt with the tiny bubbles. This is lovely.

Taste: There are a lot of very mild flavors going on with this. There is a nice balance to this beer between the bitterness and the sweetness. Typical belgian flavors going on with this just like the aroma but it actually is very delicate. I really like this one! Great flavors with this!

Overall: This is a good saison. I am a huge saison fan and this one is very well balanced and has nice aroma and flavors. The one thing that I do have to take down points for is that this is WAY to carbonated for my taste. I like to be able to move the beer around in my mouth so that I can taste it everywhere, can't do it with this beer. The carbonation is too high. It's to style still so I'm not knocking it down that much, but that's the only real flaw that I see.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

750ml bottle into a Chimay goblet. From yesterday.

A: Pours a hazy gold color. The head is two fingers high and white in shade. I'm incredibly amazed by how creamy and well retaining its texture is, and also by how much lacing it leaves behind. There are also a noticeable amount of yeast particles near the bottom of the glass.

S: Aye, it's a bit skunky. Thankfully it doesn't obscure the other notes. I'm also getting noble hops, candied sugar, and spice. Shame about the skunk, but it doesn't fully ruin the nose.

T: MUCH better. It starts with a fantastic fruit notes - citrus, pineapple, peach, you name it. Spiciness enters the finish, bringing almost a sesame seed character. I'm also getting herbal and black pepper touches. It's just deep enough, yet still fantastically effortless and unique - and at the end of the day, that's what a saison should be.

M: I like how creamy, soft, and full it is. Yet, it's still bone dry, with medium carbonation. I love how it's both rich feeling AND refreshing all at the same time.

O: Oh yeah, this is the shit. The skunky nose isn't so offputting as to ruin this, and every other aspect is at least excellent. It's so drinkable, yet so rich and so flavorful. I need more of this in my life.
