Nice aroma is herbal and yeasty along with some light citrus tartness and peach. Flavour is herbal, citrusy and yeasty along with some light spices and fruit. Spicy bitter finish. Medium bodied. This is a great Saison!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice and refreshing, well balanced, but quite different than my gold standard of this style, Saison Dupont. On tap, it was low in effervescence. Pale gold with a little haze. Little bit of vanilla in the aroma. Wet mouth feel with nice subtle peach flavors up front, followed by a nicely balanced hop astringency. Yeasty flavors are there, but not especially prominent. In the end, I’d say it’s a little closer to a Belgian blonde, but hey it works for me!
