A: The beer is relatively clear golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that has good retention properties and co sisterly covered the surface.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of Belgian yeast are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is rather yeasty and has some notes of spices towards the back end.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. Some hints of fruits are also perceptible.
O: This beer is very yeasty for a saison, but has a nice amount of dryness and is relatively easy to drink.
