22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is full of fruity notes (tropical fruits), some Belgian yeast and candied sugar. Flavour brings out mounds of tropical fruits (pineapple, mangos), resinous hops, and bitter zesty hops. Full of flavour, especially tropical fruits and zesty resinous hops. Not a traditional saison by any means, but for what it is, its wonderful.
