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

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, clear, gold in color, high carbonation

Smell: huge pepper smell and hay

Taste: pepper dominates, hay, flowers--maybe lavender, dry hops at the end

Mouthfeel: sweetish start with a big bitter end, light bodied with high carbonation

Overall: I really like the powerful pepper here and the flower is nice as it warms up. The end is a bit bitter for the style, but I still like this one as a more affordable saison. I could sip on a couple as the weather started to warm.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head, lots of carbonation. Smell is of spices, some fruits. Taste is good. Lots of spices, cardamon standing out, some fruits, yeast, good flavor. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

12 oz can. canned on 12/ 16/12.

A: surprised at how clear this brew is. a very dull yellow hue. head is bright white and bubbly. retention is average, spotted lacing.

S: lots of cardamom. perhaps some allspice as well. lilacs, heather. diverse to say the least, however, inviting.

T: similar to the nose, plenty of cardamom. too much cardamom, it is pretty much all you get. some yeasty sulfurs. the body could use some more grain, maybe some brett funk.

M: average carb . some conditioning would have been appreciated.

D: the cardamom is nice, but the brew came out a little too one-note for me. if they can get some funk in there, can condition (if possible...) they could really have something here.

a hazy light yellow pour with 2 fingers of white head which left behind nice amounts of lacing. smells of lemongrass, pepper, a nice fruity citrus scent of tangerines. a very floral flavor.. lemongrass, pepper are both there, honey, sunflower petals come to mind in a weird way. medium body with a nice amount of carbonation. a slight sting on the lips from the alcohol.. feels nice.

this is a pretty decent saison in a season where there's barely any competition. i gotta hand it to 21st amendment for the bold move of releasing this now.. and thank them at the same time :)
