12 ounce can into tulip glass; no can dating, but is a recent release. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big lemon, orange, peach, pear, melon, red apple, ginger, peppercorn, clove, honey, wheat, white bread dough, light banana/biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, ginger, honey, and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, peach, pear, melon, red apple, ginger, peppercorn, clove, honey, wheat, white bread dough, light banana/biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate peppery yeast/ginger spiciness, and light herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, orange, peach, pear, melon, red apple, ginger, peppercorn, clove, honey, white bread dough, light banana/biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, ginger, honey, and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitter/spiciness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and fairly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol for 5.8%. Touch of lingering ginger spice heat. Overall this is an excellent spiced saison. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, ginger, honey, and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, with the mellowly bitter/spicy/drying finish. Well rounded Saison yeast complexity, balanced bready malt backbone; and not overdone on the ginger. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
