look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

Must try.

3.53/5  rDev 0%
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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Had this from a can to frosted mug at Fremont Diner in Sonoma. Pours hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma of cardamom, some grassy hop, hay, a hint of light fruit sweetness. Flavor follows the aroma closely with lots of hay flavor, sweetness and honey, spice like cardamom, and a nice light slightly banana-like yeastiness. Light bodied, but creamy with medium plus plus carbonation. Overall I enjoyed this beer a lot. Surprised at its relatively low score.

3.26/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Serving Type - Can

Appearance - Straw yellow, tan tint, nice thick, foamy 1 inch head with tons of lacing.

Smell - Floral hops, spices, pepper, banana, lemon, grassy/earthy. Lots of yeast and sugars.

Taste - Starts of with classic flavors, floral hops, lemon, orange, yeast, spices. Grassy and earthy but, rather bland without any funky saison flavors. Some sour notes near the finish. Kind of a one two punch, floral fruits, then spices and that's all.

Mouthfeel - Fruits, spices coat the tongue. Palate gets more of the same with a little yeasty notes. Aftertaste is weak and mild sour.

Overall - Bland, forgettable and very boring. It starts out promising but quickly dies fast. Flavor is very basic and lacks sweetness of yeasts and sourness that most saisons have. Not a winner from a brewery that I really enjoy.
