Had it fresh in the brewery.
Golden color almost clean with a huge thick head with great retention.
Nice hoppy aroma with notes of pines, Saison yeast, cumin and citrus peels.
Interesting flavor with notes of piñacolada, Belgian yeast, citrus and herbal hops, mild peppercorn and cumin (not sure I would have caught this last if I haven't read it in the brewery board), pine, anise and banana. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with mild carbonation
Above average Saison with good complexity and a behaved but very present hop kick.

On tap at the NOLA tap room

A: An opaque golden with a white one-finger head that stays. Thick lacing.

S: Citrus, oranges, lemons. Sweet. Earthy.

T: Follows nose with a sweet, summery, smooth taste. Very sessionable. A little sweeter than most saisons I've tried. More like Lazy Magnolia's Lazy Saison. Very nice.

M: Light to medium with medium carbonation.

O: Glad I finally got to try this summer sipper. A light, smooth brew for those unbearably humid days.
