A- large bubbly white head that that has great retention and moderate lacing. The beer is a mostly bright gold color, afew little yeast partials floating around.

S- Slightly skunked smelling with some banana, honey, caramel and spicy aromas. Also hints of lavender and a bit of an alcohol sting.

T- Nice malty sweetness, honey, caramel and hint of corn. Some light banana flavor in there as well as some nice earthy spice. Very good tasting beer.

M- Nice light bodied beer with a slight oiliness to it. Good dry bitter bite in the end.

I love saisons and this is one of the best I have had. The aroma and flavor is hard do beet. An all around great beer.

I saw this staring me in the face at my local beer store and had to give a taste. It pours an amber/yellow partly cloudy. Moderate head. The aroma is spicy and fruity with hints of yeast. The taste does not let me down. So fruity and delicious. I love the spice mix. It's like a piece of bread with cinnamon butter spread on it. I found the mouth feel to be pleasing as well. Not too thick. Seems right for a saison. I think this could easily be a session beer. The abv might get you but it would be worth downing a few bombers.

First pour of the bottle is clear gold with an ample head that lasts, leaving considerable lacing. On the second pour, I kept most of the sediment in the bottle, but it looks a little cloudier.

Spicy aroma with notes of straw, sweet corn, ginger, coriander, fruit, and sugar.

Tastes of sweet malt and fruit--especially pineapple maybe some banana, and spicy with notes of ginger, clove, coriander. A saison with a tripel structure, more Belgian than French. Not pronounced hoppy.

Medium in body with good carbonation makes this really creamy, and while on the sweet side, it finishes light and dry.

This is one of my favorite saisons and I drink it regularly. Interesting flavors and moderate alcohol level does the trick for me. Never have a problem finishing a 750 ml bottle.
