Poured a cloudy orange-amber color with a small head of white foam. Good yeasty aroma with banana and apple notes. Banana, apple and a nice caramel backbone. Some yeastiness, too.

Pale gold in color, this fizzy, clean tasting saison has aromas of green pepper and candy. The taste is very clean, with a bit of lemon, and an almost salty quality. Great summer sessionable beer.

On tap quick review:
Looks quite nice, hazy yellow gold with a large amount of white fluffy head.
Smell seems farmhouse-ish in nature, little green grass notes.

Taste is interestingly strange. I partially seems like a watery, but somehow decent session PA. There is a clay like base that hits me after a mildly lemon taste, upon which build an herbal, earthy bitterness that grows to the end, but never very strong. Somehow, though, the ending is quite enjoyable.

Very interesting brew. I'm still wondering how much I like it.

The beer pours out into a Duvel glass a lightly hazed light yellow color with a 1/2" white head that soon recedes to leave a small island of foam on the surface and a ring around the glass. Sipping creates scattered small patches of lacing.

The aromas include some light citrus, some spices and a bit of malt.

The flavors are peppery and spicy with bit of citrus and malt.

The mouth feel is on the light side of medium bodied with a modest amount of carbonation. The medium length finish begins with the fading of the spices to allow a bit of citric bitterness. There's a slightly prickly feel in the ending.

A nice easily drinkable beer and I'd be willing to have another. While I'm glad I had a chance to try this in the future I'll probably picking a few other Saisons in preference to this beer.

Great Saison - flavor of earth, spice and funk. Drinks easily definitely worth picking up or give a chance. Smooth - Would say just under medium to light light body.

Funky but not overpoweringly so. Interesting mix of flavors, well mixed and none dominate. I really like this beer.
