4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a corked and caged 750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a huge white head of foam. Aroma reminds me a lot of a pilsner, but the taste is definitely more saison-like. The taste is fairly herbal and dry and grassy. Its almost sweet, but its not overly so. Soft carbonation with a definitive grassy and herbal finish. Very good overall.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange golden with big thick white head, some sediment from the yeast. Aroma is canned pears! Sweet breadth wheat, clove, subtle bubblegum and fruity esters and Belgian yeast. Taste is dangerously light and crisp carbonation with a nice creamy full body. Wheat and some lemon. Only a slight hint of booze in finish along with some spices. One of my favorites!

Tap. Very light blond with thick froth. Detectable alcohol in aroma, a bit disturbing as it appears also in the taste. Generally smooth, quite drinkable and overall enjoyable but not as great as I expected it to be.
