I didn’t notice much of the sugar from the description. Tastes like a normal saison, with some ester notes - especially banana. Not the best, but a unique take on the style. Worth trying at least once.

Clear gold with a white head. Nice meld of saison yeast and a light woodsy/maple flavor. Finishes lightly dry with an earthy/peppery flavor.

Aurelius (4065) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Foggy honey color. Tight white head. Pleasant, belgian fruity-yeasty aroma. Funky, woody, boozy, green apricots , pretty mature after you get into it. Medium body, slippery mouthfeel. Biscuity aftertaste, spicy, fruity finish. On tap, Brass Tap. Warming.

jandd1983 (2505) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Sampled at ESBLS. It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of grass, light fruity notes, pepper and light syrupy sweetness. The taste was of fruits, dry yeast notes, pepper, earth, and some light lingering sweetness. Nice.

kerenmk (2199) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks zvikar. Hazy gold-blond with white head. A little funky, dark maple syrup aroma, a little sour and mildly bitter taste. Full-bodied, tarty finish, quite carbonated.

Banana, candy, bubblegum, and some Belgian funk in the aroma. Flavor starts smooth, sweet, and fruity. Some maple sweetness, spice, and alcohol in the finish. A really good summer beer.
