Tried this one at the brewery in Santa Rosa. pours very light and clear golden colored, with a small white head. Aroma includes pears, spice, honey, hay, apples. The flavor for me comes off very much like Witbier. Light pears and spice, subtle hay and grass, honey sweetness in the background, a bit of yeast funk. Light bodied with medium carbonation that is pretty refreshing overall. Solid enough to have again.

A: Pours a hazy straw yellow with a foamy white head.

S: Funky Belgian yeast, cardamom, nutmeg, lemon and citrus peel.

T: More funky Belgian yeast, more cardamom, more nutmeg, lemon, orange peel. Basically the same as the nose.

M: Medium bodied and smoothish.

O: Not the best saison out there, nor is it the best Belgian style ale from RR, but it's pretty good. Worth a try if you can find it.
