Pours a thin head that goes away almost immediately. Lovely amber color and well-balanced refreshing flavor. A strong yeasty aroma and aftertaste, which I normally do not like but I can tolerate in this one. Overall a nice brew that goes down pretty easily.

A: relatively clear; copper in color; 1 finger white head that receded to a thin cap; nice lacing;

S: coriander is front and center with yeast and a touch of orange behind it;

T: coriander and clove all the way; no orange; no bitterness;

M: light bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: refreshing and thirst quenching, but I would definitely have liked an orange component to the flavor;

Overall I tend to enjoy most Heavy Seas beers.

This was one I have wanted to try for a while. Really great pour nice amber appearance with fluffy bubbly head. A rather simple nose, spicy, Belgian yeast, and a bit of grainy scent. The flavor is rather unique as opposed to other saisons I have had. Similar spicy notes including coriander and pepper. A really strange graininess follows like a hefeweizen. I checked the description and found that they do use wheat so I guess that explains the graininess. Last is the nondescript hop bitterness. It's certainly different and unlike other saisons I've had. Overall it was successful for me. Maybe not the best in the class but certainly interesting.
