A- Huge three-inch white head on a hazy golden/light orange body. Tons and tons of fast moving effervescence. Awesome head retention and above average lacing.

S- Faint bananas and cloves, reminiscent of a hefe.

T- Yeasty. Slight funk. I am not trained enough to know the nuances of parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme so I will just say "some spices present."...especially once it warms a bit. Hops take a back seat.

M- Light on the palate, well carbonated. Dry finish.

D/O- Not the worst saison I've ever experienced but nowhere near the best. Not worth the $4.49 price tag on this 12oz. bottle. Pass, if only due to the price.
