look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of Saison yeast, citrus/lemon, bready malts and some peppery spices.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some Saison yeast, citrus/lemon, floral notes, some breadiness and faint pepper.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.

A beautifully crafted saison, full of flavour.

aroma: artificial banana, bubblegum, clove with some tartness

taste: Bubblegum, clove, orange, spice, honey, artificial banana, slight lemon and a touch of grapefruit. A nice dry tartness to it with a good malt backbone.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: medium gold with a light haze and lots of chunky floaties hanging around. Effervescence is mild and the head is a thin finger of frothy ivory foam. Not too bad, altogether.

Smell: quite sweet with a rather malty aroma and a bit of a floral character, but not much in the way of funk. Decent, but not great.

Taste: sweet and floral with a little bit of a funk and a tiny touch of sourness at the end. Bitterness is moderate, but overall the whole thing is quite balanced. Not bad!

Mouthfeel: medium body with a huge, well-integrated carbonation and a bodacious creaminess. Ba dow!

Overall: this is a bit on the sweet side up front, and a bit on the harsher side at the end, but overall is a quite drinkable and appealing saison. Worth a try if you like the style.
