750mL bottle, picked up at Total Wine in Alexandria, VA. Poured into an Alewerks snifter...keeping it Virginia.

A: The body is a slightly hazy orange-brown with a rocky head that dimities in 2-3 minutes to a thin film on the surface. Small amount of lacing on the glass.

S: Belgian yeasts and sugary scent, layered with banana, bubblegum, and a grassy scent. Some spiciness, but not dominant.

T: Balanced but very complex flavor profile, tasted better than expected from the aroma. Starts out with the expected sweetness form the aroma. Bubblegum flavors up front, the sugars come out right behind the bubblegum, and then transition to a clear and crisp earthy note. The Belgian sugar flavor diminishes as the beer finished with a clear bitterness, and slightly hoppy flavor.

M: The body is wonderfully smooth, with a crisp feeling. Not too oily, not to dry, and a balanced carbonation to the body.

O: This is not as much like a saison as I expected. Seems to fall down between the saison and Belgian pale ale styles. But, that is not an issue, this beer is a very crisp, and presents a subtle complexity that makes it enjoyable to the end.
