16oz can. Pours a translucent yellow gold with an inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is yeasty and funky with some cloves, coriander, lemon and lime. First sip is mostly the bready yeast as well as coriander and cloves. Some grassy hops later on as well as lime zest and honey. More of the Belgian yeast at the finish with some pepper and funk. Medium body with a well hidden ABV. Not the typical beer you'd expect from The Alchemist, and for that reason alone it's worth a least a try.

Pours a straw golden body that is heavily hazy. Nice fluffy white head that sticks around a bit. Aroma is pepper, lemon, bready malt, typical saison aroma. Flavor has some light tartness (unlikely from lactic bacteria) and a continuation of the pepper from the nose with some creamy wheat based mouthfeel. Not as crisp and dry as a traditional saison, but nice none the less!

What a beautiful beer. Bready, fruity, tons of pepper, nice funk. Hoppy for a saison, but that's what makes it special. What more could you ask for.

Best saison I’ve ever had. Excellent all around, and I wish I could have bought more. Crisp and clean.

L -- Pours a clear straw colored body with a dense, three-finger white head produced with moderately aerated pour. Definitely less retention than traditional saisons, but still pretty decent. Good lacing as well
S -- Pilsner malts, sundried tomato, floral notes, doughy yeast, lemon, a touch of citrus, honey, and rosemary
T -- Quite sweet honey-like malt profile. Also getting yeast, garden-herb hoppiness, and a touch of lemon
F -- The sweetness makes the character a little cloying. Fluffy, medium carb, medium mouthfeel
O -- The sweetness could definitely be turned down a notch, but otherwise a pretty interesting take on a saison. It's The Alchemist, so of course there's some hop character, yet it doesn't overwhelm

79/100

Look: Straw, hazy with two inch head. Low carbonation.
Smell: Lemon, pepper, and banana.
Taste: Lemon, pepper, strawberries, real refreshing.
Mouthfeel: Crisp easy drinking.
Overall: A good saison. I enjoy higher alcohol saisons more than lower ones.

Generally I am not a saison guy, however of all saisons I have tried this is one of the better options. the best thing about this saison is the clean aftertaste.
