Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours cloudy orange with a slight reddish tint. Smells of wheat and fruit, especially banana. Tastes of wheat, banana, and slight cranberry, nice sour aftertaste. Beer is light bodied and very easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a very good beer.

From a can, pours as a hazy gold with a thin white quickly dissipating head. Aroma is like dried fruit perhaps cranberries. Taste is predominantly tart and cranberry-like. Some hops bitterness at the end. Decent carbonation and lasting flavors, but the absence of malt and yeast flavors makes this more of a novelty beverage rather than a beer.

Poured from can into glass. Looks light brown with a slight pinkish tint. hazy and almost opaque. thick head with decent lacing. smell is spicy (peppery?) from the yeast. taste has a little bit of spice and funk. cranberry is muted and almost disappointed there wasn't more cranberry in this -- tended more to the grapefruit. feels light to medium bodied, easily drinkable, and could be a year-round brew. Overall was not quite what I expected but still pretty good.

Tartness, from the berries, takes over this beer, erasing any floral/spicy elements that may have been there. Color borders on more of an orange, aroma hints at coriander. Taste is the hijacked by the berries, finish falls flat, and bone dry. Nice idea, but subtracts from the saison experience.

Pours a hazy light copper color. White head dissipates to a thin layer with good lacing.
Aroma is of tart fruit - apples maybe?
Taste follows the aroma - tart fruit. I don't get a lot of the cranberry until the beer warms. Then, just enough cranberry. I think any more would make this beer too tart. A light fruit taste lingers.
Mouthfeel is light. Good carbonation. A dry finish.
Overall, I liked it. A good saison - light, tart and dry. Taste improves as the beer warms. Would be very good with rich food (orThanksgiving turkey dinner).
