12 oz can, 2013 edition, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a pretty, clear, golden, straw color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into an extremely thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed a few wispy clouds that sat atop of the beer.

Aroma: Nice aromas of Belgian yeast, banana, clove, barnyard, malt and freshly baked sourdough bread and honey.

Taste: Great! Strong flavors of citrus (orange and grapefruit) mixed with lightly toasted malt. There are notes of spices such as black pepper, coriander, clove, and Belgian yeast. Finally, there’s a little honey-like sweetness to round everything out. Delicious!

Mouthfeel: Crisp and very effervescent due to a lot of carbonation. With an ABV of 6.2%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a very good American version of a Belgian Saison, and is the beer that made me a fan of Saisons. Big flavors, nicely balanced to make a delicious, refreshing quaff. I love this beer!

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
