Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold with a small frothy white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is a strong clove yeast and pepper. Thin mouthfeel with a light spice and honey with sweet finish. Easy to drink, a good saison from Spoetzl.

2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
While this is a spicy and tasty farmhouse style, it lacks some of the robust character I would expect of the style. While this spring seasonal isn't quite robust enough to stand up to the still cold spring days by the fire, the warm hints of an oncoming summer that tease from time to time match we'll with this spicy brew.

Poured from a bottle, clear and golden. Had large head that dissipated quickly. Aroma not as strong as other farmhouse ales. Taste is smooth with a balanced body. Not a bad saison.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Almost a finger of head on a hazy, orange/golden colored body.
The aroma is nice: banana, grain, lemon and nectarine.
The taste is watery with hints of banana and lemon. Too mild.
The texture is soft with moderate carbonation.
Not a bad beer but the taste could have more to it.

Bottle. Golden pour with white head. Has a banana, clove and Belgian like aroma. Flavor is nowhere as vivid as its aroma. Boring.
