look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a bright, cloudy gold with a thin, creamy white mousse.

S: Aromas of earthy, nutty spelt, wheat toast, lemon, vanilla, and cream fill the nose.

T: Notes of lemon, heavy cream, vanilla, and earthy, nutty grain wash across the palate. A subtle, bready yeast backtaste develops around mid-palate. The finish is very smooth with cream, vanilla, and wheat toast notes reminiscent of a huge witbier.

M: Medium-to-full in body, smooth, and creamy. Carbonation is unobtrusive. Alcohol presence is pronounced.

O: Calling this a saison is most likely a bit dishonest because there is little, if anything, that identifies this beer as a saison. An unspiced double witbier is more likely what this is. Don't get me wrong, it's pretty tasty and appealing in its own way, but if you're expecting an authentic Wallonian-style saison full of earthy, spicy funk, you'll likely be a bit disappointed.
