A: Pours a translucent golden color with a foamy/creamy white head.

S: Spices dominate the nose, particularly cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg, maybe some clove, behind which are sweet candied fruits, dark fruits, figs, plums, raisin.

T: Taste is much fruitier, but still spice-heavy, with cardamom, clove and nutmeg. Some light fruits, some sweet candied fruits, some dark fruits.

M: On the light side of medium bodied and smooth, especially for a saison.

O: Pretty good. If you like your saisons spicy, you'll love this one.

(Served in a globe glass)

A- This beer pours a pale lemon yellow body that is hazy with a thick sticky snow white head of cream that has some nice lacing. There is a swirl of microbubbles billowing to the surface.

S- The hint of pils malt is followed by a soft lemon pith with some slight soapy qualities to it.

T- The dry grapefruit pith flavor is soft with some field corn hints to it and a dry finish that has some sulfur or pepper hints to it. It is a clean but dry finish.

M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a crisp fizz in the finish.

O- This is a nice looking beer and pretty taste but it is a bit dry with very little yeast profile to make it a session beer. Especially if price is a factor.

From Sydney Wine Merchants. fridged. no BB.

A - light straw, two finger head stays nicely. Lines of lace.

S - dry, lemons. Muted and one dimensional.

T - funk, earth, lemons, Belgian yest, spice, saison on the money.

M - highly carbonated, lively, zesty, tho in all that, quite lightweight and just a hint watery.

O - a very approachable Saison, despite light ABV. Very light and refreshing as a drink after a few ales at the club. Smell is less than half the story.
