Very, very tasty. Pours a gorgeous hazy golden orange, tastes somewhere between a belgian, saison, and APA. Aroma is the weak point, not terribly pleasant. Soft
carbonated palate, kind of a Michelob aftertaste... But that just prompts another drink.

Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet fruits, spicy hops and yeast, earthy,lemon zest. Medium body. Flavor has an initial sweetness that dissolves into a nice zesty, spicy, earthy tone. Very enjoyable saison.

Kinda of a hybrid of a Saison and a BSPA. Whatever it is, it was very refreshing and wouldn’t hesitate to order again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Clear golden color. Thin white head, dots of lace. Really nice fruity estery nose. Nice lemon peel, orange peel, spice (clove). Zesty, estery, kind of savory taste. Slightly bigger body, smooth lighter carbonation. Some interesting lemony tartness. Mild floral hops. I wanted to be skeptical, but I can’t help but dig it. Spiciness impedes drinkability slightly, but this is still a really nice American saison.

This poured a hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma was of yeast, light spices, and grassy hops, Flavor was a bit off and plasticy, spicey, and some herbal hop notes. Ok.
