From can. Hazy bright yellow color with off-white head. Aroma has sweet wheat and vanilla notes with some floral yeast. Taste is sweet at first, somehow milky, yeasty, slightly bitter and astringent on the finish. Medium body, soft mouthfeel. Quite nice beer overall, seems like a combination of a witbier and a saison.

16oz can. Served in a Alchemist arome glass. Pours a hazy golden-straw yellow body, two finger thick white head, appropriate retention time which is not too long by any means, wispy lacing. Smell is cloves, esters, light cracker, candied sugar, a bit of zest, minerals and mild floral hops. It smells like a cross between a hefeweizen and a hoppy pilsner. Works for me. Flavour is zesty, candied sugar, touch of cracker and fair bit of cloves; light fruity ester, touch of breadiness, finished with a bit of lavender and floral bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy, very drinkable with the fruity esters lingering on the finish. A very well executed Belgian-style saison, which showcases the yeast. This is more on the hefeweizen end of the spectrum than the sour, tart AWA end of the spectrum.

Belgian style Saison. Golden in color. Hazy in appearance. Banana, clove, white pepper, coriander and lemon peel. Wheaty malt profile. Fairly bright. Medium bodied. Shorter, clean finish with a hint of bitterness. This is good.

Moderate pour yields a one inch white head over a hazy, pale golden body with nice lacing. Nose of Belgian yeast, pepper, and a slight floral-fruit-funk. Tastes of spice and slight fruit and oh so refreshing. Very nice feel and overall a great beer! Brewed with Pilsner malt, Saaz hops, and fermented with Baston yeast.
