Lots of active fermentation on this one. 3 fingers of stable head, a crystal gold color.

Fruity aromas, pepper, clove, banana, apricot, and metallic cantaloupe.

Flavor is much of the same, as if I took a slice of pineapple and put some pepper on it; some metallic harshness, bright fruity notes. More coriander, some clove.

Feel is pretty carbonated, a starchy dryness.

Overall it's pretty decent. Still not as great as Sofie or Colette though.

Aroma is complex and fruity. Peaches, nectarines, oranges. Chamomile with some bubblegum. Fresh, floral hops. Peppery phenols.

Hazy gold/yellow with a somewhat thin white head. Good lacing, ok retention.

Full juicy fruits upfront. Apples and hay. Nectarines, white pepper, bubblegum. Fresh flowers. Light, crackery malt. More fruit than spicy.

Medium high carbonation. Spicy alcohols. A hint of creaminess. Very dry with lingering fruits and spices on the palate.

Really nice. With the fruit character, could pass as a Belgian pale, but a minor complaint.

Aroma is dry, with citrus, banana, clove, pepper and somewhat musty. Taste is similar as described above with maybe a little more earthiness and a fleshy fruit backbone. While dry and effervescent, there is a lingering component that causes me to barely detract from the mouthfeel.

Overall, a very well executed, textbook example of a Saison.

A classic slight hazed yellow pour with a white head and streaking lacing. smell is slight tart and funk, taste follows nose with classic funk and lemon spritzes wet hay and malt, high medium carbonation with a slight lemon barnyard finish. A classic American rendition of the style.
