I found the doubts about this beer because it came in a can to be groundless.
I love this brewer and I vastly prefer cans.
A: Big yellow body with big dense Belgian head, lots of floaters. However, it fades too fast and laces not enough after the first rings. Initial visual impression is good.
S: Classic saison, almost in direction of a white Duvel, with grainy toast malt, lemon, lemon grass, cracker, floral and effervescent.
T: Follows smell, plenty of sweetness and yeast that fall right into my expectation, so much so that I can drink more of these if I had them. Pilsner yes, but not bland, like every other American version I have tried, this is more like a real Beligan. Coriander, and hops, fill out the bill in a lovely long tingly finish.
MF: As noted long tingly finish, fluffy feeling, refreshing, well made.

A - pale yellow, translucent, 2 finger head
S - sharp aromatic smell of fruits, cardamom is very dominant, can detect some other spices, underlying smell of banana, slight nutty smell
T - very sweet, strong taste of cardamom, pineapple and bananas, very slight bitterness left on the palette that follows the sweetness
M - watery and light, sharp taste
O - The cardamom is very strong here and doesn't leave much taste/smell other things, which is both a good and bad thing. I enjoyed this beer overall and would drink it again. I personally really liked how the beer smelled and tasted. The strong cardamom was welcoming with the fruity and nutty undertones being barely present but still existing. Good saison overall.

A-Funny can art. Pours a lightly hazy yellow with a thinner, white head. Soft on the lace.
S-Aroma is heavy with the pungent cardamom. That combined it's the Belgian yeast makes for one spicy, clovey aroma. Some peppery aromas, too. Somewhat fruity.
T-Cardamom, clove, pepper. Light fruity notes with some grassy hops as well. The spices are too bold.
M-Medium bodied, well carbonated. A bit of a lingering feel to it.
O-Was not a big fan of this. Not into all the spice flavor. It takes away from the other elements of the beer.
