look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Light golden with not much of a head and some lacing.

S: Lemony, grassy, clove

T: Spicy, banana, lemon, some subdued citrus, slightly phenolic, very slight tartness

M: light - medium bodied and fairly dry finishing with a lingering bitterness

O: This is a nice saison. Definitely on the clean side for a saison but a nice spiciness to it. Not the best I've had, but very good nonetheless. Try it out.

From the 2014 batch. Sampled on March 28, 2014.

This has a slight foggy pale yellow pour with a short-lived white head. Decent carbonation.

The aroma is wonderfully traditional for the style with its Belgian biscuit malts, Belgian yeast, coriander, clove, and slight citrus backdrop.

The body is light to medium.

The taste is much like the aroma with the same yeast, malts, and spice character but the peppery finish and grass kick in to give this a modest, bitter finale. This is worth trying once.

Poured out of a 1.6 ounce bottle into a tall wheat beer glass served cool

Somewhat cloudy straw gold body with a nice thick sticky white head

Spicy clove front some floral some earth smell

Spicy herbaceous front flavor. Fruit lingers near the end some slightly medicinal aftertaste

Light mouth feel

A nice enjoyable beer some enjoyable complexity might be a little bit too strong and alcohol
