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.

3.81/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

Bottle

Port Bottle Shop
Carlsbad, CA

Unfiltered golden orange with a tall and thick white head that stays around for a long time. Plenty of lacing down the glass.

Grassy and earthy aroma. Simple and pleasant.

The aroma is better than the flavor. It seems a bit like a wheat saison and not as sweet or fruity, or funky, as I tend to like them. A simple farmhouse ale. Better than average.

Medium mouthfeel. Easy to drink.

A terrific, easy drinking, light table beer. Would go great with food.

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

11.2 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a minimal head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing on glass as beer was drank.

Smell: Vanilla, pear, apple, powdery yeasty esters, spiciness, bready and pale malts, and Belgian candy.

Taste: Pear, apple, lemony, powdery yeast, spicy, pilsner and pale malts, some Belgian candy, and lingering mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, a little chewy, a little dry, medium to high carbonation, and enjoyable.

Overall: This Saison is like a light triple. I was expecting more on the spicy and flavorful end, but was left short of my expectations. Still happy that it is a borderline triple.
