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

A: Cloudy pale gold with a nice head of foam stacked on top of the beer, dense and creamy.
S: Highly fruity aroma with some light clove notes.
T: Definitely on the fruity end of Belgian yeasts, this is packed with ripe grape and pear notes. Phenols are fairly light, as is hop bitterness. Somewhat sweet finish.
M: Lots of carbonation, as expected.

Saison is a pretty open style, but I generally expect more phenols as well as more hops. All the best examples have that.
