On tap at Irish House in New Orleans, Louisiana- NOLA Hurricane Saison has a thick, fluffy, slightly off-white head and a hazy, golden appearance, with lost of thick lacing left on the glass. The aroma is very much of green grass or a freshly-mowed lawn (St. Augustine grass). There is some sweetness and malt as well. Taste is of green grass, sweet & resiny hops, sugar, candy and loveliness. Mouthfeel is medium, and NOLA Hurricane Saison finishes semi-dry, clean, and smooth. Overall, this is a wonderful draft beer. A must-try!

1. I had this on draft from a fresh keg at a local casino.

2. There was a great amber color with a thick head that lasted the whole beer.

3. There was a great malty smell with low hop bitterness.

4. Nice thick mouth-coating feel.

5. Overall I would love to buy a 6 pack of this to take home and enjoy. I am new to the Saison market so not having much experience with others of the same kind I can't say how it compares to Brand X but I will be looking for more Saisons in the future.

Appearance: Beer has a clear dark golden almost orange color with one finger of fluffy white head with good staying power. Patchy lacing throughout.

Smell: Very floral aroma with this beer. Hops give it a sweet presume like smell.

Taste: Sweet floral and fruity flavors. Sweet lingering flavor left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation gives the beer a bubbly but medium mouthfeel.

Overall: First time trying a Saison beer. Very distinctive flavor with some sweetness from the hops. Nice sweet lingering finish. I will try this type and brewery again.
