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.
