look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- Pours up a good amount of head which seems to be receding rather quickly. The head is a pure cotton white while the body is a hazy, pale amber which appears as cloudy, golden straw when held up to the light. Some lacing is left behind.

Nose- Nothing overwhelming but still quite nice. Notes of apple surface first, followed by some banana and cloves, a little bit of Belgian yeast. There is also a subtle perfume/floral quality to the aroma- it reminds me a bit of fresh laundry. These fade with apple and banana being left behind as the dominant notes. Subtle but nice.

Taste- Fairly strong taste of Belgian yeast- complete with spice, perfume, and floral characteristics. Lots of cloves. The banana and apple of the nose get really buried- this beer is much more of a phenol bomb. Some pepper and other spices on the finish. There isn't much of a linger- the finish is pretty dry. Some citrus (mostly lemon) starts to appear after subsequent tastes. Some melon and peach notes seem to mix with the overarching clove profile. Seems to be a decent saison but I do prefer much less clove. An above average beer but a mediocre saison. Slight astringency to the overall flavor profile. Doesn't really detract though. Fairly enjoyable beer- it simply seems lesser in comparison to the great saisons out there.

Mouthfeel- A light more than light bodied with a slight tinge of syrup. Light carbonation. A bit of a dry finish.

Drinkability- Pretty easygoing once the cloves start to mellow. The price was pretty reasonable (I think)- 2 to 3 bucks a can? I could see buying it again.

Overall- Above average to good beer. Nowhere near best in style but definitely with in the parameters. Worth a try, especially if you are looking for a budget saison. Though, I might try out Stillwater for that. Could see myself buying this again.

wonderful tall 11.2 ounce can. Appearance is is straw with good carbonation and moderate white head. Lots of small carbonated bubbles. Aroma is fruity/flowery/boozy. Love the mouthfeel as it seems like the carb continues or maybe even increases. Flavor moves from citrus tang through warming clean dry crisp finish.

Pours a very cloudy, dark golden orange color with a half finger off-white head that immediately fades. Poor retention with minimal to no lacing.

Slightly earthy, musty aroma with a blend of peppery spice, bread/yeast and light fruit esters. Farmhouse funky yeast with grass, straw and barnyard along with pepper, clove, banana bread, and apple. Opens up nicely after warming to an appropriate temperature.

On the lighter end of medium bodied with soft carbonation and a zesty, peppery spice presence that lingers over the subtle funk, yeast and light fruit notes into a slightly dry finish. Strong spice character up front with pepper, coriander and ginger flavor which is nicely complimented by sweet citrus rind toward the finish. Slightly dry and earthy farmhouse presence with grass, straw and very subtle funk. Decent bready yeast character with banana and minimal bubblegum flavor. Sweet ester-y light fruit notes towards the finish, notably apple and pear along with tart and crisp lemon/citrus peel. Well balanced decently complex with a well masked ABV. Refreshing and very easy to drink. Another solid beer from this under appreciated brewery.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 330mL narrow can into a tulip.

Appearance: murky light-golden hue. Head is a finger of pillowy ivory foam. I think it looks quite nice.

Smell: the aroma is quite light, with a little bit of sweetness and a little bit of funk. There is also a slightly fruity element here. I like the composition, but the intensity is a bit light.

Taste: funky, earthy and a little buttery. Hops are apparent here where they weren't in the aroma; earthy and almost minty. There's definitely a lot more flavor here than the aroma would suggest, but I find it a bit muddled and imbalanced. It's not bad, but it could be better.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big, well-integrated carbonation that yields a nice, mouth-filling creaminess. Good stuff.

Overall: this beer has an interesting flavor profile, but I don't see myself going back to this well anytime soon.
