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

750mL bottle poured into my Tired Hands saison glass (large tulip glass that is reminiscent of a wine glass.)

A-A nice golden body that is quite cloudy. No large particulates or yeast sediment in the glass. Head was over three fingers width. Bright white in color with great head retention and nice lacing left on the glass. As the head recedes back into the beer I can hear the bubbles crackling.

S-Floral and defiantly pick up the yeast. The yeast gives off that clove aroma. The rest of the nose is full of grassy barn yard aroma with orange rind. Traces of lemon and banana peel can be pulled through the bouquet that turns out to be very enjoyable.

T-The yeast is right upfront for the taste as well. Those fruits found in the smell are there helping to balance out the yeast. On the palate you get a dank malt complexity mixed with those citrus notes. At the end you get a slight peppery taste with the citrus notes still in play.

M-Enjoy the carbonation on this beer alot. Perfect for a saison. Medium/high in the body. Finishes not as dry as I was expecting.

O-A great saison. Love everything about it. The nose and taste are very complex and make it hard to decipher exactly what you are experiencing. Extremely enjoyable however and easy to drink.

poured into Crooked Stave tulip glass.

750 C&C bottle; vintage 2012.

Appearance: cloudy straw yellow bodied beer with 3 fingers of bone white head. Head has some great staying power and stays around for a long time. A rocky and uneven cap remains during the entire drink.

Smell: Citrusy, floral, and yeasty nose. Wheat malts and a mild fruity sweetness. A hint of mustiness.

Taste: Starts with a mild lemon tartness and tropical fruits. Wheat malts and lots of yeast notes that are bready and fruity giving just the right amount of sweetness to the beer. Maybe a hint of banana. Hint of black pepper and cloves. Musty funk and a touch of barnyard flavor. Finishes with a mild floral and grassy hop that is mildly bitter. Also green apples, lemon zest, and more wheat malts.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. The carbonation is really fantastic; its honestly carbonated perfectly. Clean and crisp; really really lively beer. Nice dry finish. The head of this beer it has a silky feel and it contrasts with the feel of the body of the beer as described above really interesting effect.

Overall: Really great saison. Love the look and feel of this beer the most. A benchmark beer for the style! Its a must try beer. An $8 shelf beer in a large format bottle. Great value and a well crafted brew walk together hand in hand.

P: 11.2oz brown bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Hazy gold with orange highlights and a two finger white head. A little sediment in the glass but you have to hold it up to the light to see it.

S: Smells like a barnyard with some wonderful sweet floral and tart fruity notes. Earthy as well. I find it to be very inviting for a Belgian, I want to taste this beer.

T: A nice light grainy malt base with some tart fruit in the finish. There's a little yeast at the end after the other flavors have faded. Refreshing.

M: Very light and very carbonated with a dry finish. Super easy to drink and it's a smooth as can be.

O: This is a really nice Saison. It hits on what I'd expect from a one, barnyard, tart fruit and flowers, dry and easy drinking, it's all there. This is a very refreshing beer that I'll gladly seek out in the hotter months. I love Belgian's and this is one of my favorites.
