Nice saison.... golden glowing body. Lots of fast rising bubbles but low head retention. Nose had a little saison yeast aroma. Taste was more noticeable. Very solid saison flavor, bigger body as expected than typical style. Driking this on tap at speckled hen and pairing it up with some seared scallops.

On tap at the brewery. Poured into a tasting glass.

A: Clear straw yellow color. I would have thought this would be a bit cloudy, but I digress. Small pure white head, nice retention and lace.

A: Belgian yeast, light malts, and small citrus. Absolutly no hint of alcohol.

T: Again, much of the same. Yeasty malts, with a small earthy hop profile. The yeast is distinct and welcomed. Finishes dry.

M: Light body, good carbonation. Pretty crisp and clean.

O: Nice, light session strength saison. One that I would love to have a few of by the pool or the ocean. Skal.

World of Beers - UCF, Orlando. Musty yeasty aromas with sweet malts. Pours a hazy yellow orange with a thick white head. Funky malty with citrus notes and sweet bready malts with spicy yeast flavors, coriander and nutmeg with hints of cinnamon. Clean refreshing finish. Great session brew!!!!

Appearance: A frothy pale white head forms atop the hazy amber liquid; clumps of lace stick to the side of the glass on the way down

Smell: Pear and floral perfume, with an herbal spice aspect

Taste: After a toffee sweetened start, the floral and pear elements add additional sweetness that is balanced out, by mid-palate, with bitter, herbal undertones; the finish has both the pear fruit and herbal bitter flavors

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with low carbonation; a bit watery

Overall: A bit sweeter than I prefer but still a nice saison, overall; like the low abv but the body does suffer, as a result

Pours a golden haze, half finger frothy white head, Very Nice lacing

Smells fruity, banana crisp, clean, slight hefeweizen appeal.

well carbonated, light bodied

Light, fruity, slight souring towards the very back of the tongue as the last flavor

Very nice, favorite saison Ive had thus far.

32oz growler into a Weyerbacher tulip.

A: Clear pale gold body with a finger of coarse white foam that settles into a ring. Nice.

S: Light and fresh. Biscuity malt, lively esters, spicy phenols. Dry minerality. Good.

T: Spice up front, followed by some lightly bready malt. Very clean, but this is where the low ABV hurts it - it's pretty watery.

M: Light and lively, full of creamy carbonation. Great.

O: I'm scoring this a bit higher for overall than the average of the other categories, just because I'm so pleased to see a great brewery producing a beer that combines classic Belgian flavors with session-strength ABV. This beer, while clearly lacking the intensity of practically all normal Saisons, nevertheless provides a classic and refreshing twist on the style. I'd gladly quaff a pint of this after mowing the lawn.

Cheers!
