No canning information.
Appearance: The body is hazy with a pale straw hue. The head is tall and white with great retention and leaving lots of lacing before settling into a foamy thick white coating.
Aroma: The aroma has slightly tart lemon, with a prominent spicy dough presence and hints of floral notes.
Taste: Hints of lightly tart lemon greets the tongue immediately which overlies a spicy and doughy base. The finish has hints of perfume, but the light lemon and mild spicy dough base make up the flavor here.
Palate: Light and crisp, moderate to highly carbonated.
Overall: This is a great saison, especially when it’s available for $7.99 for a six pack. This is on par with many Belgian saisons I’ve had.

So, so happy they’ve decided to start canning this! This rating from a fresh one, #12234 best by 10/23/13. Nose spicy, peppery and floral, pours hazy banana yellow with a soapy bright white head. Taste sweet and yeasty, light wheat, bready malt with clove, black pepper, very bright pale malt, lightly oily medium body with light bitterness. Quite clean and hides the booze well. Doesn’t have the yeast/spice complexity of others, but what it does have is suuuuuper repeatable, no problem finishing a sixer of these in the summer, or a case at a party with friends.

Hazy straw-yellow body with a large white head and soapy lacing. Lemon zest, light grains, peppery yeast. Light bodied, mellow carbonation, a little thin in the finish and lacking a true crisp bite that would make this even more refreshing. Respectable.

Draft at Blind Tiger a few months back. Pours straw yellow in color with a fluffy white head. Lighter in flavor than more standard saisons I have had. The addition of wheat to the barley gives the beer more of a cereal grains character. There is a light spice adding to the fresh lively mouthfeel making this beer very refreshing.
