Pours a hazy golden yellow. A simple head sits on top, off white and lingers for a bit for good rentention though not much lacing.
The aroma is lighter in this saison. It has a pale malt smell with hints of yeast, cloves and spices, all of which are lean and sutle.
In the taste I get some biscuit maltiness, tart lemon juice, pepper, yeast and spices.
It drinks clean dry and crisp on the palate.
A good saison. It's light and very drinkable.

The color is a light yellow in the glass. The head is white with lots of carbonation visible. The overall smell is of citrus with a hint of spice. There is a lack of lacing on the glass. On first taste, you have citrus, bread and a hint of spice. The taste is dry and crisp. The overall mouth feel is very soft and smooth to the mouth. This is a beer that would be good for after a hot day of work. It pairs well with light food, fruit, cheese and bread.

12oz bottle into a tulip.

Pours a clear straw yellow with a one finger fizzy white head. Decent head retention thanks to the plentiful carbonation but very little in the way of lacing.

Very bready aroma with orange, clove, and bubblegum. Quite zesty and very appropriate for the style although it does lean quite a bit towards the yeasty/bready side.

The flavor had lots of orange and tangerine up front with yeast and bread. Some lemon and spice in the background before it all fades to a moderate and very dry finish. Seltzer-like carbonation aids in the drying in the finish.

Overall, a decent saison although a bit on the pricey side and lacking the depth of some of the better known Belgian examples. Worth picking up on occasion but would not become a regular staple of mine largely due to the price.

Bottle from BrewDog Edinburgh. Pours a light hazy gold colour, unfiltered with suspended particulate, with light whispy film and lacing.

Smell is full of apple and yeasty lemon, some of the ginger definitely comes through. Quite a fresh grassy floral nature to it, with a slight spice prickle.

Taste is full of lemon, hay, barnyard yeast, slightly funky apple pear fruits with some good yeasty earthy bite to it. Very nicely balanced and tasty.

Mouthfeel is light, easily drinkable with a good firm yeastiness to it and citrus character.

A very nice light saison, lot of citrus fruit character with the american hops, and the spices mostly work and dont throw it off kilter. Some earthy and yeasty character comes through, nicely balanced and drinks quite well though it doesn't have the same depth of complexity one would expect from a top class beer of this style. More about refreshment and that is what it provides rather well.
