look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12.7 OZ bottle.
Served in a pint glass.
Amber color, darker than most saisons I've had. Minimal head.
Smell is typical saison with sweetness from the mandarin oranges. Notes of banana.
Taste is caramel, spice, then orange in that order. Very pleasant, would have again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look - Murky orange body with thin white head

Smell - orange, honey, ginger, coriander

Taste - comes in a bit better than the smell - oranges upfront, ginger, coriander and honey to round things out

mouthfeel - medium plus body, high carbonation, citrus upfront from the orange, spices come thru after that, dry finish

Overall - very enjoyable Saison that I found to be refreshing yet full of flavor. I would re-visit this in a heartbeat. Recommended

Price Point - $3.50/ 12.7 oz corked and caged bottle
