Thanks to orangesol for sharing a growler of this one. Sent eastward by the caring hands of NickD.
A-Hazy golden yellow with a thick bright white head that slowly reduced to a thin cap and left spotty lace.
S-Earthy, spicy, musty. Bit of white pepper spice, clove, hay, lemon zest and fresh tilled dirt.
T-On par with the aroma with a plethora of spice, earth, must and herbal notes. No one flavour dominates and all mingle and meld rather seemlessly.
M-Medium-light bodied, quite soft and creamy with an easy drinking profile.
D-Nothing crazy going on here but the sum of the parts equals one mighty easy drinking brew. Would like a bit more citrus zest and a little less Earthiness but these are minor and personal "flaws". A solid example of style for sure.

A: Pours a light golden with a foamy white head.
S: Funky Belgian yeast, cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg in the nose.
T: Sweet and sour like a oud bruin, with some funky Belgian yeast, fruity Belgian yeast esters, lemon, cardamom and nutmeg.
M: Medium bodied, typical saison carbonation.
O: Pretty good. Not one of their best Belgian-style ales, but definitely worth a try if you can find it (I'm assuming tap-only).

On tap at O'Brien's Pub in San Diego, CA.
Pours a clear yellow-orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, spices, and yeast. Taste is much the same with a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
