I had this beer on-tap at WABL Belgianfest 2013 in a snifter taster glass.

Appearance: light golden yellowish hue; pale, with a little bit of haze and an indiscernible effervescence. A little bit of head is present. Not too bad, but not outstanding in any way.

Smell: aroma is sweet, perhaps a little fruity, but perhaps nonexistent. The beer isn't too cold or anything; the smell just basically is too light to really tell much.

Taste: like the aroma, the flavor is a bit on the mild side, but at least here we have some actual character. Little bit of pear and apple, a little grassy, but very little in the way of saison character. In general it appeals to me, but it's too light and not really to-style.

Mouthfeel: light body with an alright carbonation and an alright creaminess. Nothing really fancy here.

Overall: this beer has some good points; it is light in flavor if that's what you're looking for, and the flavor you do get is decent. However, it's kind of boring and not really saison-ey. For the most part, I'd give it a miss.

A: Poured a hazy straw yellow color with great carbonation leaving a frothy, two finger head which fades leaving a light amount of lacing

S: A little bretty, baby diaper, straw, orchard fruits and a light dash of spice

T: Immediate pear and light red apple presence with a little baby diaper, barnyard which leaves a small spicey note. Finish is dry, a little spice and fruity

M: Medium bodied, well carbonated, creamy

O: Not to bad. I would go for this again.
