4.03/5 rDev +25.2%
A: Pours a hazy golden with a white head.
N: Nose is fairly typical of a saison. Notes of wheat, orange peel, coriander, cardamom, nutmeg, a tiny bit of Belgian yeast funk, and some fruity Belgian yeast esters.
T: Taste is pretty much the same, cardamom, nutmeg, fruity Belgian yeast esters, funky Belgian yeast, wheat and orange peel.
M: Medium bodied, and smooth for the style.
O: Recommended. This is a solid example of the style. Definitely worth a try, as is anything from this brewery.

Heavy carbonation off of the pour. Eggshell white foam. Light golden in color and it you get plenty of light coming through. I get some of the Saison yeast in the aroma,but it is quickly followed by a bit of corn. Adjuncts in a Saison = not cool. Mouthfeel is light and smooth. I don't get the trademark slickness of the Saison yeast. I actually get almost a faint bit of a flavor that is similar to coriander and it is pretty strong.

12 oz. bottle poured into a NB snifter.
A - Beer pours a light, clean golden, creating a big three-finger head of eggshell white fluffiness that takes its time to dissipate. Held to a full-spectrum light, the beer is a rich golden-yellow and cloudy, with a thick column of bubbles flowing up the middle. Wide, delicate broken lace around the sides.
S - Esters of lighter fruit, like ripe pear and cantaloupe, mix with bubblegum. Yeasty, light grain breadiness sits underneath. There's a very subtle spiciness that has a clearing effect on the nose, so the esters are favored along with notes of golden wheat and wild grasses. Nose is rather soft.
T - Light whole grain bread with a touch of dark honey. Some yeastiness mixed in, with hints of banana taffy in the background. A touch of white pepper shows up in the profile in the last half of the glass. Light floral hops appear in the finish for balance.
M - Fizzy and crisp. Nice, tight carbonation that's moderate and refreshing. Light-moderate body that's integrated. Short finish that's clean with just faint echos of the taste profile lingering.
O - A refreshing, enjoyable beer with a relatively straightforward construction. A touch sugar-forward, but light throughout, there are just enough bittering hops to provide good balance and a clean finish, making this a good summertime option.

Pours a straw yellow color with a decent sized white head that stays around for a time.
Smells like hay, freshly mowed grass, and a hint of citrus.
Citrus starts out strong at first, then gets a bit grassy and finishes with a strong hops note. Leave a bit of lingering bitterness.
Feel is ok, can really feel the carbonation on the tongue.
Not a bad beer, but seems to not be very coherent. It could use a bit more balance and complexity to it, while refreshing, has a bit of an odd flavor note that keeps it from being one of the better examples of the style. I mainly bought this because i like the packaging and the label, but not one I'll be likely to have much more of in the future.
