Can. Pours hazy brownish orange with a large off-white head. Pleasant aroma of wheat, orange, spice and earth. Flavor is just as complex, with wheat, some honey, orange, spice, ginger, and perhaps some cocoa. Complex, yet well balanced and refreshing. Excellent stuff.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Can, thanks OSLO and Guerde) Pours amber. Hops and fruit in the flavour with tones of herbs, mostly coriander, orange peel, lemon dishwashing liquid, apricot, white pepper, fresh ginger, clove and nutmeg. Undertones of honey, flowers, toasted malt and yeast. Spicy, light fruity and hoppy flavour with tones of orange peel, pepper, coriander, mild grapefruit and apricot. Discrete maltiness. Light sweet with a rather high bitterness for being a Saison. Quite soft, juicy and clean mouthfeel. Lingering bitterness of citrus and herbs.

Hah. loved the description. Looked a little deceiving as to what was really in the can. Somewhat spicy scent and bite in the taste. Nothing really amazing, but a good tasting breaker or something to just have and enjoy. Wish it was easier to get more of this here.

Can- Pours a slightly hazy golden color, white foamy head. Nose is beautiful, hard to believe this came out of a can. Straw, earthy, some black pepper comes through, wonderful nose. Soft on the palate, spicy, good ester charachter. Saison in the can, very cool, very very cool.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can shared with and courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy orange-amber with an average size somewhat-lasting creamy off-white head. Very nice aroma of yeast, lots of fruit (peaches and more), honey, pepper and other spices -- quite impressive really. Flavour’s yeasty and spicy along with some fruit and honey to sweeten it and has a big bitter finish. HogTownHarry mentions "almost a charred linger" and I’m getting that as well. Medium bodied plus. I’m not the biggest Saison fan but I love this! Surly never disappoints.
