Light color with lots of carbonation bubbles. To me this has the scent of a Belgian Tripel, a bit funky with some spice. Quite a complex range of flavor, there's beery maltiness, some spice with a tripel yeast finish. It's flavorful and yet very much still a beer. Very carbonated and creamy. Well done. The slightest bit of heat on the end.

12oz bottle into Libbey tulip
no date code
L- hazy ice tea color, with huge fluffy white head, and great retention
S- farmhouse funk, coriander, orange peel
T- sweet, spicy, funky, in reality a real nice blend of spices and its hard to pick out indivual ones, but really nice all together
F- smooth and creamy with 'tight' carbonation
Overall a great aromatic beer with even better taste. the spices are real nice and subtle contributing to but not overpowering this well crafted brew

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Cloudy yellow color with a rich and foamy head and great lacing. Fragrant and fruity smell, very pleasant. The taste is classic saison, fruity, lemons and spice. Very nice beer!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Look - Nearly clear, gold in color with a big fluffy white head. Lots of visible carbonation.
Aroma - Coriander, slight hay, white pepper, orange, grass
Taste - Biscuity malt, bitter spice, grassy hops, pinch of orange, musty, clean dry finish. The slightest wimper of alcohol after the finish.
Feel - Medium body, Loads of carbonation. Goes perfect with the taste and makes an incredibly refreshing beer.

Overall - All of the flavors compliment each other extraordinarily well. One of the best beers I've ever had.

Poured into a tulip from a 750ml bottle with a best by of 1/2018.

L- A hazy gold with thick and fairly well sustained head. There is a considerable amount of yeast in the bottom of the bottle and the brewer even cautions to pour slowly.

S- Yeasty with the scent of wet grass and a slight funkiness.

T- Peppery with a hint of citrus peel pith. Moderately hoppy but balanced and refined with a clean, dry finish.

F- Very effervescent and light on the tongue. A rich full body, very crisp and light.

O- This Saison achieves a nice balance of complexity yet maintains the spirt of simplicity of a true farmhouse ale. One of the best I've had.
