I smell and taste grapefruit, malts, spices, a touch of yeast, hops... and I possibly taste pears? This is a very good drink. Its also not going to corrupt or weaken the palate. Overall it is worth getting a bottle.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Poured golden/orange hue with a white head. This was quite spicy and insanely dry. Some malted sweetness that meshed with citrus and floral/grass and more yeast-like spices. A bright saison for sure.
