Poured into a Piraat tulip: cloudy with a thick white head. Smells yeasty and saisony. Not anything fantastic. Taste like white wine was mixed into the batch, which seems out of place considering the low abv. Taste does improve as it is drunk. Overall, interesting beer, but there are better saisons for the price.

A: Pours hazy, very light amber color. White head, pours not too big, not too small, good lacing.

S: Nice clean grassy saison smell

T: Great refreshing clean taste.

M: High carbonation gives off fine bubbles in my mouth complementing the clean flavor of this saison

O: This is the best Saison I've had. I've tried this on-tap and was very impressed and it is just as great this time out of the bottle.

I was quite excited when I poured my first glass. The aroma was spot on and it poured nice and clear with a pale to golden color. The aftertaste in the mouth was pleasant. What let it down was the taste. The was an overriding bitterness which was unpleasant and it lacked body.

A thick color of liquid gold & a fluffy head you could rest your noggin on. Poured with some sediment for a glowing opacity. Light fruit & alcohol on the nose, some light green, mossy notes. Big, expansive carbonation, some banana & bitter orange zest. An off-dry medium bitter finish with a hefty mouthfeel and a light heat that comes in late.

Overall - short, dry, & to the point, like an unseasonably warm early spring day.

Cloudy orange amber color, white head, orange and pineapple on the nose. Taste is dry, funky, bitter, hits a beautiful note somewhere both in the attack and aftertaste, mango maybe? Mouth feel is slightly buttery, thick and slimy but in a subtle and acceptable way. Very unique.
