Pours a slightly cloudy golden amber. There is a layer of off white head. Has a pils like note in the nose along with some Belgian spice. More Belgian spice in the taste along with a pleasant sweetness. Just a bit herbal with a slight bitterness in the finish. Light and quite nice. The carbonation level is a bit high,

Poured into a snifter.

S: Spice, Belgian yeast, citrus.

T: Moderate sweetness and light to moderate bitterness. Spice and Belgian yeast. A touch of hops.

M: Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Crisp and warm going down.

O: Really good Saison. Especially looks and tastes great.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy orange with lots of effervescence and a white two finger head.

Aroma: Yeast, sweet syrup, clove.

Taste: Like a mild Tripel. Nice blend of spices with some apple and pear. A hint of belgian candi sryup. None of the 7.7% ABV present in the flavor.

Mouthfeel: Just below medium in body with maximum carbonation. Easy drinking.

Final Thoughts: An enjoyable Saison. Light in body and mild in flavor. Would I drink it again? Probably not because I'm not a huge fan of the style but I would highly recommend it to anyone who is.

Poured chilled into a fluted tulip.

Pours a nice hazy straw color with an inch+ airy white head that slowly recedes leaving a nice surface layer and nice lacing.

A mild spicy, fruity aroma.

Flavors of pepper, cloves, citrus and a musty earthiness in the background.

A medium bodied beer with a crisp finish and moderate to heavy carbonation.

A nicely balanced if fairly tame example of the style. I prefer my saisons with a little more of that farmhouse funk to them.
