Pour from a can; straw color, slightly hazy, big white head. Bready sweet aroma with a hint of sour and almonds (i.e., mild nutty aroma). With the first sip the initial sensation is the carbonation, which quickly gives way to a pleasant lemony sourness. The finish begins with a hint of hopyness and quickly changes to dried sour fruits. Coats the mouth and results in a very lingering finish (for me that was 5+ minutes). Very nice saison.

Light yellow color with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is huge and piercing. Lots of perfume, spices, yeast, and grass. Smells like a bouquet of flowers. Flavor is sweet at first and finishes earthy and yeasty with light malts. Very different and pretty good overall.

12 oz can pours light, clear yellow with small head. Yeast and spice in the aroma. Tastes like a spiced version of the classic Belgian farmhouse ale. This is earthy, clean and refreshing. This should be a summer seasonal. Great Saison!

Can. Pours a clear pale yellow with minimal white head. Aroma of Belgian yeasts and cardamom. Taste is a bit sour up front, light to medium body, with a tiny bit of bitterness and spiciness in the finish. Pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This starts with a sweet bready malt aroma, with hints of cardamom. It pours a hazy light straw with a full white head. Nice earthy bitterness to it, very light on the palate. Not a bad saison, although I’d still probably prefer this on a hot summer day.

Can: Pour is hazy gold with a fast fading medium white head.
aroma is strong cardamom and clove spice. Ginger and lemon as well.
Flavour is lemon, slightly yeasty. white pepper, cardamom spice. Earthy biscuity malt. Body is a touch on the thin side, but overall I enjoyed this very spice forward beer.
