Pour was clean and had very little head to it. Beer is clean to drink and has very little of that saison "funk" to it

Bottle from giant eagle I think. Nose is wine like and has alcohol stank on it. Crisp and apple, grain, and alcohol tastes in there. Smooth and Belgian for sure but not as complex as some saisons. Would do again but may look for others to try.

When i searched for this i came up empty because I tried to make this beer feminine. Im sorry i attempted to emasculate you L"E" Merle. Clear golden yellow color with lively carb. Very traditional aroma comes across a bit too sweet and rich in malt profile and sweet fruits. Apple, pear, caramel malts, white bread soaked in cider. Taste is chewy sweet and spicy. Some kind of bastardized belgian strongish ale that is decent but not my cup of tea.

Petite bouteille partagée par Vincent. Merci! Une saison dorée qui a un col blanc qui s’accroche. Un nez poivré avec du blé et une fine touche de fruits. On est ici dans le murmure parfumé. En bouche, les choses se révèlent doucement. Le poivre me saute sur les papilles. D’autres épices rencontrent des saveurs de fruits acidulés et de houblons. L’alcool arrive à se faire remarquer. Au palais, le corps fait bien le style. Tout est bien mené. La finale est sèche, propre, sans grand remous. Une bière peu stimulante qui a le mérite d’être bonne.

Aroma of sweet grain and fruit. Fantastic head. This beer pours great in a tulip. Smooth, well balanced palate with notes of bread, yeast, and tropical fruit, with a nice clean finish. ABV is barley detectable. Tasted at 40F.

Smakrik och trevlig utan att vara för mycket. Ska jag vara kritisk så är den väl inte så stiltypisk för en saison.

On tap at New England Taphouse In a pint glass for 10 bucks Deep golden color with a smallish white head. Earthy rustic but still with a bready malty orange and tropical fruity sweetness. I’d drink it again if the price were better.

Drank it on a hot day in California and it was delicious. Refreshing, great amount of spices and fruity notes ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Pours a pale gold with a thin white head and lacing. It has a nice aroma of biscuit and bright, tropical fruit. The flavor is bread up front with a slightly fruity and dry finish over a medium, prickly body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tropical fruit hop flavor dominates, some yeast spiciness underneath, a hint of straw, some light banana...this tastes like a cross between a saison and an IPA. Good, but it would be better with a little less hops.
