3.22/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Fairly clear, yellow-hued body with a thin, white head.

Smell: Syrup glazed apricot, pear, and juicy peach, tossed with alcohol, and a sizable phenolic underlying spiciness.

Taste: A light pale maltiness, a hint of hay. Moderate sweetness. Tangy, subtly tart orchard fruitiness gives way to clove bud spiciness and a thin, thin medicinal hint. Slight alcoholic tone emerges as it warms. Drying, lightly bitterish, lightly spicy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Falls under the medium carbonation mark.

Overall: With its tendency towards sweetness, lack of crispness, and a bolstered alcoholic content, it forgoes delivering refreshment, as many American saisons do.
