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.

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
