Get lots of peppery spice and lemongrass with some citrus thrown in. Mouthful is thicker then a tipical saison.

Draught @ Albion. Slightly cloudy bright yellow with very small frothy white head, doughy aroma with citrus at the background, low carbonation, sweet starting citrusy taste with little hops influence, medium tart finish. More tart than hoppy.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle purchased at Surdyk’s and consumed in a Belgian snifter glass with commonshawn. Effervescence abounds. Aroma is aligned with a standard saison. Spices and citrus with floral qualities. Light straw golden with a decent froth. Taste is much more full bodied than a normal saison. A nice Belgian yeast funk with a healthy alcohol bite at the finish. Citrus and spices (lemongrass as the label suggests) reign supreme. Pleasantly impressed by this beer. Much like Shakespeare I feel compelled to wax poetic.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big bottle from surdyks with commonmac. Light gold with very thick very bubbly head. Extremely effervescent. Lemon and flowery nose. Oily and good body for a saison. Some citrus peel bitterness, some other fruitiness . Pear or apple. Finish is really nice. Shakespeare would be proud.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big bottle into goblet. Good thick foamy head that has good retention. Aroma of yeast, lemon, and hay. Complex spritzy layered taste - first sensation is slightly tart and hoppy, moving to malt and green apple with notes of citrus and perhaps slightly bananry finish with hints of lavender. Some of the saison funk. Very enjoyable and recommended.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I poured it from the bottle into a chalice. It pours golden with a big white head and lacing. The aroma is banana, clove, spice, and orange peel. The taste is banana, clove, and orange. The aftertaste is boozy. The mouth feel is full with moderate carbonation. The saison label was a bit misleading in my opinion. This was a quality beer though.
