3.81/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

22oz poured into goblet. Bottle number 3460 8?

A-Golden straw body with nice clarity. Just shy of being perfectly clear. A light fluffy head formed that leaves nice lacing and had decent retention.

S-Clove and dough first come to mind then a slight mint/herbal presence with banana peel/mild spice character finishing it out.

T-The taste is herbal, estery, sweet mixed with clove. Lots of flavor coming from the yeast just as a saison should be. Not a particular fan of this yeast though.

M-Medium bodied saison with decent effervescence. Finishs with an herbal dry finish.

O-A beautiful looking saison that just does not do it for me in smell/taste. Yeast is the main driving factor of any saison and I just do not prefer the flavor profile developed by the yeast. The hops add a nice herbal/earthy character to the flavor/aroma and the malt bill keeps the hops in balance with a dextrin body. Happy to have picked this beer up and would like to try this beer fresh.

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

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

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.

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

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.
