3.9/5  rDev +2.6%
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.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip
A: Pale orange with a tall 2+ finger head
S: sweet malt, sweet fruit esters and some Belgian yeast
T: Again sweet malt, fruity, a bit of banana, clove and yeast
M: Medium-bodied with pleasant, sweet carbonation
O: A solid, straightforward example of the style. Bonus points for the beautiful label. My only preference would be slightly less sweetness

3.86/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A-a light golden color with three fingers worth of rocky white head

S-pale bready malt, spices, yeast, and citrus

T-taste is similar to the smell, pale bready backbone with citrus, spices, yeast, and slightly bitter

M-medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall not the funkiest of Saison's but still very nice. I like the barrel series that Long Trail is doing.

Pours a hazy straw with a small head with good lacing. Floral yeasty smell, not as intense as other saisons I have experienced but nice. The taste is subtle but consistent. Backing up the yeasty floral aroma with a slight citrus finish. All in all a solid beer, nice packaging and very seasonally appropriate. Nice job long trail.

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

A: Poured from the bomber-bottle into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is clear golden with a 1-finger white head. Some lacing.

S: Yeasty, bready and lemony. Touch of fruit.

T: Cereal grain foundation, some ripe fruit (grapes and apples), slight earthiness and a lemony finish. Modest heat from the ABV is felt at the end of the sip and lingering on the back of the palate. Lemony bitterness remains in the aftertaste, attempting to cut through the sweeter flavors.

M: Medium in heft with good carbonation levels. Hint of slickness at times.

O: Too sweet and not dry enough to be the type of Saison I prefer, but it's not bad.

I'll have to say this didn't drink to it's size. That's not a negative, just an observation. In total not as fruity and refreshing as I tend to like my saisons and not as dry either, but having stated that, it still was a fine beer for a very nice evening.
Quite cloudy and a fair amount of lacing, often showing drink lines. Cloudy and more towards gold. At first showed a sweetness and some herbal. As it warmed this went away and the wheat and spice showed up. Became drier as it warmed to, not being that dry at all at first and somewhat later. Did have a bigger feel which probably reduced it's quenching qualities.
I enjoyed this. Good and solid.

Serving type: on-tap
