Flavoursome but easy drinking Saison that hits the spot.
aroma: citrus/rich malt predominate
taste: peach, apricot. clove, rich malt, banana, white wine, orange and slight grapefruit.
Fruity and distinctly Belgian with a pleasant dryness. Well balanced and a good beer to have with friends.

A- muddy gold with one inch of coarse light tan head. Decent head retention, poor lacing. Random splotches of foam stick at random to the sides of the glass. There is a lot of carbonation along the sides of the glass.
S- spicy hops, clove, yeast. pretty light. Some lemon peel as well.
T- clove, honey, grain, . some light spicy grassy hops in the finish. I'm really not Getting that barnyard funk that a saison should have.
M- light, prickly carbonation, refreshing.
O- eh. It doesn't scream saison to me.

Poured a light golden color in a tulip with a 2F head which resolved in minutes to a 1/2 f head.
Aroma:interesting- funk, lemon, clove. Different than other Saisons which have more fruit.
Mouth feel: mild carbonation.
Taste: clove, mild bitterness, and malt. I prefer more fruit and funk in a Saison taste.
Overall: This is different approach to a Saison. Good although I am partial to stronger clove, fruit, and more carbonation in a Saison.

This is my first try of a belgian Saison! A great beginning as I can see!
It's a saison of a light, pale orange color and a nice big foam.
It has a nice sweet, malty, and earthy aroma.
Taste is malty and earthy too, it begins fruity, a bit tart and sweet but then comes some bitter notes.
Hoppiness is at good level, aftertase is bitter but not dry.
Great body and carbonation.

Served chilled into a fluted tulip.
Pours a hazy bronze color with an inch plus of airy beige head that slowly recedes leaving moderate surface layer and lacing.
Very strong earthy, spicy aroma.
Very well balanced flavor profile. Earthy, grassy, hint of lemon with pepper and spices.
Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation that gives it a crisp finish. Earthy aftertaste on the back of the tongue.
Overall, I really enjoyed this saison. I was afraid from the aromas it was going to focus too much on one flavor or another. However, it is very well balanced and pleasant.

375 ml poured into a Delirium Tremens snifter
A: Golden pale yellow with a white soapy head that quickly dissipated o a rim of medium bubbles with a few left over patches of small bubbles in the center.
S: Earthy hay like almost grassy hops on the nose with a gentle sweet malt character in the background. Definitely a hoppy example.
T: Sweet malt comes through then followed by the hops. Not as hoppy as I assumed. Definitely more malt forward with that typical musty farmhouse thing going on.
M: High carbonation adds a nice feel to the sweet malty beer and adds to the dryness. Nice bitterness lingers and is quite refreshing. Definitely feels thicker than a dry 5.5 % abv saison but saison yeast coupled with high carbonation can work wonders.
O: A nice malt forward, yet hoppy saison. Nice farmhouse character, drinkable and sessionable.
