Look: It pours hazy orange with a bit of yellow tinges in it. It has an off white head with moderate head retention.

Smell: There is a good deal of barnyard elements with some spice. There is a bit of lemon and coriander as well.

Taste: The flavors feature barnyard and leather with some spice. coriander is the most noticeable spice. There is a bit of lemon to it as well.

Feel: It has a moderate body and has a very dry finish.

Overall: A quality saison with plenty of Belgian elements to it.

Flavors are well melded together and the brettanomyces is a nice touch.
