22oz. Bottle. Pours a hazy golden/orange with a very thin ring of head and slight carbonation. Nose is very earthy and malty with a nice balance of floral hops. Slight fruity presence, mainly banana. Mouth is very malty and yeasty. The banana stands out and is perfectly balanced. A slight earthy undertone. There is a slight citrus hop bite, but it is very subtle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden orange with a small white head. The nose is floral as fuck, some citrus and sweet rolls. The taste is heavy sweet and light bitter with just a hint of tart. The texture is sticky at first but dries out. The body is heavy and the finish is long. Not what I would call a saison but good the same.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 22oz. bottle into pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy dark yellow with a light brown tint. A nice 1 finger head that dissipates quickly leaving no visible lace worth mentioning.
S: Big yeast on the tip with a tinge of sweet sugars and nice spices.
T: The same yeast from the nose is present, but the spices are much more present than what I picked up from the smell. There is a surprising alcohol heat finish that lasts for about 1 secod followed by a nice sweet sugar.
M: Medium bodied that is both creamy and smooth. Light carbonation that leaves a nice sweet film over the tongue.
O: I thought this was a decent saison, but its flavors give off more of a tripel vibe than a saison. It was ok, but there are 4-5 saisons Iíd choose over it.
