Pours hazy amber gold orange with a creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like sweet nutty toasted caramel malts, mild banana, clove, peppercorn spice, tart lemon, orange citrus, some funky hay, apple, pear, apricot, with floral earthy grass and herbal pine. Tastes like sweet nutty toasted caramel malts, mild banana, clove, peppercorn spice, tart lemon, orange citrus, funky hay, apple, pear, apricot, with floral earthy grass and herbal pine. Feels smooth medium bodied, creamy and slick with moderate low carbonation. Overall a real nice saison.

Very pleasant ale to have mid-day with a thin-crust pizza.
Nice-looking in a glass. Earthy, yeasty in the nose. Full taste, then cleanses the palate.

A: Dark orange, cloudy and dense with a fulfilling nature of turbid macro-floaties. Vibrant sense of effervesce, milky and frothy chalk white head of one half inch holds pretty well for its size. Nice thick band lacing.

S: Aroma of fresh wet flowers, sweet caramel malts, fruit of cantaloupe, pear and apple sauce.

T: Flavor was fruity, melon and cantaloupe, oranges, pear and honey malt adds sweetness. Nice floral hops, toasty caramel, spicy with some buttery bread and light butterscotch. Spicy flowery hops, cola, caramel toast nut adds to a really good complexity.

M: Crisp tingly mouthful, creamy malts, light to medium body, really nice.

O: The flavor has a lot of caramel fruitiness, and a very good sense of floral hops, yeastiness, and crispness per style. Really hard to argue against an authentic belgian saison, this is very good all day.

Poured a can of this stuff into a tulip. It is a lovely bright orange but came with a terrible hideous separated load of muck. Maybe the can was a couple months old or kept at the wrong temperature, but it just looks unappetizing. The smell is bright and grassy, straw, some tangerine juice and a touch of fresh algae. The taste is way more mellow in contrast to the more tangy nose. Straw and sunflower seeds are sweet and mellow up front with a light prickly sweet tangerine and green apple finish. The feel is light and easy upfront but finishes unexpectedly dry. Nice tasty Belgian saison save for the dryness and the weird ugly muddyness.

Poured into a tulip glass. Bright, carbonated lacy head fill the glass. There are grassy notes that permeate from the pour. The slight tart/sourness is evident and even some crisp hops come through. A light body makes this an easy drinking ale anytime of the day.

This was from a can and not the bottle.

Pours from the 11.2 oz can a slightly hazy orange with a short lasting head of foam.

Smells spicy with the usual cast of characters for the style but I'm getting notes of green apple, grass, and some pear like aromas.

Yeasty, spicy taste with some green apple and pear, quite hoppy on the grassy side.

Nice different Saison. $17 for a 4 pack could hinder a repurchase..

Pale colour with a lot of carbonation.
The taste is too sour for me and has a strange aftertaste.

Pours a hazy orange tinged golden color. Thin white head stuck around for a bit with some spotty lacing on the glass.

Smell had aromas of grass, hay, fresh baked bread, with some notes of apple and pear like aromas, bit of an herbal hop aroma on the back end.

Taste had some fruit flavors of apple and pear with some mild hay and bready malt favors. Noticeable hop character here as there is some real herbal hoppy bitterness on the back end and finish. Mild flavors of peppery yeast and spice on the finish. Overall a decent saison - lacks a bit of the stronger yeast presence found in other saisons, but nice none the less.

Feel had medium carbonation. Rather medium bodied and appropriate for the style.

Overall a nice Saison.

L: gives a hazy orange color. Top of tick head where half disolver quickly, and half of it stays there. Bubbly with decent lacings.

S: very fruity, I sense light fruits like apples,pears and peaches. I also sense different herbs.

T&F: the first that I sense in the flavours is the sweet belgian yeast mixed with different fruits, in the middle and the finish I taste different herbs and spices. The finish is with hoppy bitterness and herbs. The aftertaste is lasting a while and the bitterness is good balanced with b the other flavours.the mouthfeel is creamy and refreshing.

O: a good, refreshing and enjoyable saison.

Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Hazy, golden-strawberry color. Didn't have much of a head, but that could be due to the pour. Very delightful fruit and malt aroma, with hints of Belgium yeast. Something in the nose tells you to brace for a high ABV taste and mouthfeel that is to come. However - the taste is refreshing and thirst quenching and at once also chewy and satisfying. This is a bold Belgium Farmhouse ale that deviates from the usual 4 or 5% ABV that's typical of the style but I love it because it doesn't knock you out like most high ABV American saisons do.
