I usually do not like saisons at all. This one beats most for me (so maybe it's no good for a lover of saisons.

Right off the bat it hits you with a great yeast flavor. Complex, rich and somewhat malty.

It tastes more like a lot of wheat beers and that's an improvement. The burp is yummy. I will continue to avoid the style, but I don't regret geting this one.

On tap at Capone's.

Poured a medium and cloudy yellow color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of yeast, some citrus, and 'musty'. Tastes of citrus, a little fruity (bananas), and spices. Refreshing and drinkable.

12 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer quickly. It is a hazy golden straw yellow with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Pepper spiciness, vanilla, pilsner malts, apple, pear, powdery yeast, and a

Taste: Same as above. Nice and traditional and no one flavor overpowers the other.

Mouthfeel: A bit smooth, medium to high carbonation, a little dry, medium bodied, a little spicy, and a little chewy.

Overall: Pretty awesome saison. It's been awhile, but I'll enjoy more in the near future.
