A- Hazy golden straw color with a huge white head with good retention. Yeast flecks stay suspended for quite awhile.

S- Belgian yeast, banana, slight clove, some spice; quite nice.

T- Belgian yeast, phenolic funkiness, finishes with a lemony tartness.

M- Crisp with carbonation bite. Relatively light body.

O- Great beer, refreshing with a lot of yeast spiciness. Great example of the style.

A - Poured from a 375 ML bottle into an oversized wine glass. Slow pour immediately results in massive foamy head, which retains quite well and left a couple nice rings of lace on the glass. Massive carbonation aids the head retention significantly. The beer is a cloudy, golden straw color. There are some small flecks of yeast that fallout eventually.

S - Wonderful aroma. Nice yeast characteristics of banana and clove. Little bit of breadiness. Some nice herbal hops.

T - Follows the nose, but a bit more subtle and subdued. Flavors progress from hops to yeast to mild breadiness. Also throw in a touch of pepper spiciness.

M - Soft and medium bodied. Nothing exceptional, but very nice all the same. Small tingle on the finish.

O - Great beer, no question. Unfortunately at $6 retail for the bottle that I purchased, the value is not here on this one. Only slightly better than some more reasonably priced Saisons that I have enjoyed in the past.

Pours a clear gold with a frothy two-finger head. Earthy bread, hay and grape fill the nose. Those tastes, along with a bit of fruit and barnyard funk predominate the taste. Medium mouth with a fair amount of carbonation Crisp. This isn't my favorite saison, but it's very enjoyable.
