3.63/5  rDev +9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

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.
