Pale yellow in color, very light haze. Airy white head sticks and deflates. Crowned nicely. 3.75
Coriander, cardamom, pepper, yeast funk, light peppermint, and almost an aroma of treacle. Strange, but likable. 3.5
Herbal, like the nose. Cardamom is right there along with white pepper, grapefruit pith and rind, light nuttiness, and a few trapped malt sugars. Lively and spicy with big herbal notes and barely definable citrus. Flatter in the finish. 3.75
Drinks lighter and refreshingly so, but with a tad too much sweetness. Carbonation is big and fluffy. Warrants a more careful approach, as it can burn you out too quickly if you try to guzzle. 3.5
Canned saisons. Steps in the right direction. Not exceptional, but good enough to approve. 3.75
Serving type: can

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.

3.53/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
A: Bright lemon peel coloring, slight, misty haze with a medium dense, slow rise of effervesce. Big, creamy white capping, lasting appeal, leaving a thick band of lace behind.
S: Quick, initial wiff of bananas, then some light musky citrus. Tart orange, dry sweetness of caramel grains and bread, with sliver of barnyard air.
T: Flavor had an initial sweetness of caramel-orange, toasted grains, soft hay and a touch of barnyard muskiness. Lightly dry lemon tartness with a nice leave of dry tropical, pineapple, lightly tart frutiness and banana.
M: Mouthful was spritzy , nice snappy bite of carbonation, bready feel, that turns frothy on the hold.
O: Overall a fairly solid saison, tart citrus in a can, sharp carbonation, though flavor could of been a bit sharper and more defined.
Serving type: can
