The aroma in this beer is great. The problem starts after that. Once I get to the taste the saison flavor is really laking with a very water finish. It is ok for a saison but the good ends there

Bottle. Belgian yeast, nice bready malts, peppery hops. Spicy citrus, and I think part of that is the rye. Crisp and tasty, a very "traditional" saison, meaning much in the style of Dupont, and as such, one of the best I have had in American in that vein.
