Pours straw gold with 3 fingers of rich, rocky, thick head.

Smell is typical of the style, tropical fruit, coriander, hint of bubblegum.

Taste is on the slightly bitter side, but not offensive. Hints of sour apple (I'd certainly hope so in a sour apple beer), grass, and horseblanket come and go. There's a bit of alcohol warming goin on, something I've never experienced in saisons before, but not altogether unwelcomed.

Mouthfeel is nice and soothing, coats the palate, but light and airy enough to keep it intriguing.

Overall, a pleasant beer. Worth seeking out.

Clear pale yellow/straw colored pour with a minimal head. Aroma has a good bit of yeast and spice and a little grain. Flavor is a very basic saison...yeast and clove are the dominant flavors. There's also a very light tart apple flavor and a touch of ginger. Finishes with a lingering clove flavor. Expected more.
