Had on tap at TnN. Nice soft burnt yellow with fluffy head. Dissipated quickly but generous lacing. Straw, funk, banana, clove in nose; nicely full coming from glass. Flavor mirrors scent with funk a bit more evident... but not overwhelming. Gentle to mildly bright carbonation; refreshing.
Based on earlier reviews I think the brew has been improving more recently.
All in all I found it a nice saison that went very well with the unseasoned dry sausage I had. Enjoyed!

A:
Pours a powdery gold with three fingers bone white head, drops to a scant film with a ring around the edge of the glass, wavy lace squiggles. (3.5)

S:
Doughy yeast with lemon rind, pepper, floral aromas, slight clove/banana. (3.5)

T:
Doughy and a little sweet, white bread, clover, honey, pepper. (3.25)

M:
Medium minus body, light prickly carbonation that is a bit fluffy. (3.5)

O:
Decent beer.
It reminds me more of a hefeweizen than anything, but I do prefer a really dry saison, so it might just be me.
It looks nice enough, little retention. The aroma is yeasty and a little floral. The flavor is mainly sweet, but the sticky yeast paste flavor is still there a little. Fairly drinkable. Nice little beer.
I'd have it again probably, but nothing too amazing. (3.5)

Served at fridge temperature. Poured into a large tulip. Lively to pour. Head tapers down to a fine lace rimming the glass after a couple minutes. Lovely light copper orange hue. Faint nose of rustic wheat. At first taste, wheat and banana dominant however this quickly gives way to thin orange/citrus taste but a more possessive strong bitterness which rides out into a long and lingering aftertaste. I like the weight of the beer and its presentation but the taste is a little unrefined. Good effort but could use some refining.
