22oz poured into goblet. Bottle number 3460 8?

A-Golden straw body with nice clarity. Just shy of being perfectly clear. A light fluffy head formed that leaves nice lacing and had decent retention.

S-Clove and dough first come to mind then a slight mint/herbal presence with banana peel/mild spice character finishing it out.

T-The taste is herbal, estery, sweet mixed with clove. Lots of flavor coming from the yeast just as a saison should be. Not a particular fan of this yeast though.

M-Medium bodied saison with decent effervescence. Finishs with an herbal dry finish.

O-A beautiful looking saison that just does not do it for me in smell/taste. Yeast is the main driving factor of any saison and I just do not prefer the flavor profile developed by the yeast. The hops add a nice herbal/earthy character to the flavor/aroma and the malt bill keeps the hops in balance with a dextrin body. Happy to have picked this beer up and would like to try this beer fresh.

From the 2014 batch. Sampled on March 28, 2014.

This has a slight foggy pale yellow pour with a short-lived white head. Decent carbonation.

The aroma is wonderfully traditional for the style with its Belgian biscuit malts, Belgian yeast, coriander, clove, and slight citrus backdrop.

The body is light to medium.

The taste is much like the aroma with the same yeast, malts, and spice character but the peppery finish and grass kick in to give this a modest, bitter finale. This is worth trying once.

Poured out of a 1.6 ounce bottle into a tall wheat beer glass served cool

Somewhat cloudy straw gold body with a nice thick sticky white head

Spicy clove front some floral some earth smell

Spicy herbaceous front flavor. Fruit lingers near the end some slightly medicinal aftertaste

Light mouth feel

A nice enjoyable beer some enjoyable complexity might be a little bit too strong and alcohol
