Even a slow, careful pout fills the glass with foam, bright white and fairly dense, as it slowly dissipates leaves a solid ring around the glass like a bathtub stain. Clear golden liquid, on the dark side, hyperactive large bubbles appear to swirl around as much as up. The nose has some table cracker and pepper burst at first, grassy but also develops a sweeter side with apricot, banana, yellow apple fruit, pink bubblegum and a touch of rose petals, accents of lemon custard come and go, genially insistent overall. Full-bodied and on the creamier side, the carbonation massages more than tickles. Spicy with the black pepper eclipsed by ginger, coriander to cumin spices. Balanced out well by florality, bubblegum and croissant elements. The lemon to orange citrus is soft and sweet. Apple, pear, apricot fruit can at times add a tart twist. Does dry out some and get more herbaceous or earthy at the end but nowhere near any super-traditional Belgian saison. Very likable and approachable and nothing about it suggests exaggeration.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Three Floyds pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and a solid finger of white head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A spicy and fruity Belgian style Farmhouse aroma with a scent of spices and dried fruit. Belgian yeast with a spice scent of clove, peppers, coriander, and farmhouse funk. Fruit scent of banana, pear, apple, lemon, and orange. Sweet scent of bubblegum and candied sugar. Malt scent of grains, biscuit, and cracker. Hints of earthy hops. A very nice aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a spicy and fruity Belgian Farmhouse taste with notes of spice and dried fruit. Belgian yeast with a spice mix of clove, peppers, and coriander along with farmhouse funk. Dried fruit notes of banana, apple, lemon zest, and orange. Sweet notes of bubblegum and candied sugar. Malt notes of wheat, grains, biscuit, and cracker. Earthy hop notes of grass. A pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp and fairly drying. Very smooth.

Overall: A very good take on a Saison. Good mix of yeast driven spice and fruit notes.

22 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled on 3/21/2017. Pours hazy medium golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big lemon, orange zest, peach, pear, apricot, apple, coriander, peppercorn, clove, banana, light bubblegum, honey, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, spices, bready malt, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, orange zest, peach, pear, apricot, apple, coriander, peppercorn, clove, banana, light bubblegum, honey, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Moderate yeast spiciness and light-moderate herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, orange zest, peach, pear, apricot, apple, coriander, peppercorn, clove, banana, honey, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, spices, bready malt, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitter/spiciness and carbonation, increasing though the glass. Medium-plus carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy/bready/sticky, and fairly crisp balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol for 7.4%. Overall this is an awesome saison! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, spices, bready malt, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the balanced spicy/drying finish. Was expecting a more hoppy saison due to the brewery, but this was very balanced and pretty traditional tasting. This has an Abbey yeast, and not the usual saison strain. A lot more fruity/banana than expected, but is still plenty spicy with adequate dryness for the style; despite being fairly malty. A highly enjoyable offering.
