Poured from champagne style bottle into a wine glass. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a thin white head. Floral smell, great Belgian saison taste with a semi-dry finish. Light bodied. This is a great summer brew.

My first PAA beer.

Turbid straw appearance with a fluffy two finger white head. Smells of grain (mainly bread and cracker), white pepper and earth. Flavor profile comes across very clean on the palate with grainy bread, Weiss beer estery banana, pepper and lingering yeast. Feel is spot on for the style. Nothing profound here but it is damn refreshing and easy to drink. Probably best suited for a hot July day.

Hazy yellow, slight head stays until near the end.
Floral smell. Poured in oversized wine glass and everyone in room appreciated smell.
Taste herby and follows nose. Dry finish.
Simple kind of tasty. Enjoyed with French bread and Irish cheese.

Pretty standard saison here. Nothing stand out about it. It has nice farmhouse notes, and doesn't over do it in any particular way. Certainly no off flavors like phenols etc. Lacks tartness, body, and malt flavor
