Pours a hazy dark straw color with a white head. Aroma is fruity, with citrus, unripe banana and clove factoring in. In the taste, unripe banana and lemon upfront; herb, pepper and a bit of malt sweetness round it out. Not really bitter and virtually nothing there to balance the malts. Too sweet, not at all as spicy, earthy or tart like great saison style beers. Light body with a medium carbonation. Overall this was an ok wheat but falls short as a Saison.
