look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Bottle conditioned poured in a standard pint...because that's what I have in this hotel.

A: slightly hazy golden color small head that persists and leaves lacing on the glass as you drink.

S: slighly metallic smell with light apple like jicama or starfruit but not sour like starfruit

T:sweet like a chimay cinq cents with buttery bread feel that fades to a plain wheat bread. Slightly spicy though I'd be inclined to say it's the carbonation.

M: smooth easy drinking saison slight burn from carbonation but not harsh.

O: I agree with ajzbedo in that this would be great to pop the cork on a hot summer day it's refreshing and flavorful in the bread department. It can even at times remind me of caraway ie pumpernickel. I'd say I'm a fan, it's reasonably priced too.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

*12 oz. bottle*
Look: Hazy golden blonde body, 1 1/2 finger white soapy head.

Smell: Tart citrus, spices, hay, yeasty, hints of earthy quality tobacco, mild funk.

Taste: Tart citrus (Lemon peel) wheat and oats, honey, hint of a fruit (pear), sweet and dry and slightly sour.

Feel: Medium-light body, very active carbonation.

Overall: This is very delicious. One of the prime examples of the style. I have no problem drinking a four pack of this all Summer/Fall long. For it being almost 8% it isn’t detectable. This brew is recommended.
