look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Aroma: Lots of fruity esters, lemon citrus and apples. Lots of spicy pepper phenols, clove and banana. Clean pale malts, maybe a little pilsner. Orange shows up after a bit and the pepper and clove spices step up as well. Some bitter and floral English hops.

Appearance: Pale straw. Moderately cloudy. Lots of rising bubbles. Head is clean white and pours very tall. Great retention and lots of lacing.

Taste: Light to moderate floral hops followed by black pepper and yeasty phenols, then the fruity orange citrus and apple. Lots of competing flavors here. Some alcohol shows up at the end. Long bitter and slightly tart aftertaste. Also a bit of sulfur, wonder how old this bottle is? A born on date would be nice.

Mouthfeel: Light and fluffy body. Carbonation is moderate, but is smooth and creamy, not stinging.

Overall: Nice, bold and complex brew. The spice dominates the fruitiness here, again perhaps due to the age of this bottle. Even so this is a good overall saison.
