This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a burnt light copper color with a finger’s worth of off white foamy head that clung and glistened a little bit before gently dieing off to leave some sly messy lace. The aroma had some sweet grains, light floral bits, dried bubblegum, dried herbal qualities and some hay. The flavor had a dried sweetness about it through the prior mentioned aromas. Subtle dried flroal/herbal/hay aftertaste and finish. The palate was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt as projected. Overall, with so many saisons on the market these days, I don’t see a need to come back to this other than being grateful to my West coast friend for sending this to me.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Murky dandelion yellow hue.

Frothy bright white head head; spotty lace.

Banana & clove nose; hint of citrus.

Medium mouthfeel.

The taste is surprisingly malt forward; banana & clove take a backseat but are present. Not too flavorful but definitely sessionable.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: 2" fluffy white head recedes slowly with moderate lacing. Significant carbonation present. Deep golden color and somewhat cloudy, but less than is common with saisons.
Aroma: clove, banana, warm bread dough, earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: mostly light, fairly crisp, somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: Hops are more forward than expected and mask the sweeter malt flavors (clove, banana, caramel) somewhat.
Overall: very fine, but not great.

A: Pours a hazy golden with a white head.

N: Nose is fairly typical of a saison. Notes of wheat, orange peel, coriander, cardamom, nutmeg, a tiny bit of Belgian yeast funk, and some fruity Belgian yeast esters.

T: Taste is pretty much the same, cardamom, nutmeg, fruity Belgian yeast esters, funky Belgian yeast, wheat and orange peel.

M: Medium bodied, and smooth for the style.

O: Recommended. This is a solid example of the style. Definitely worth a try, as is anything from this brewery.
