At a tasting, thanks, medium stable bubbly head, light hazy pale orange color, aroma of paper with light bready malt, a spicey hint and some honey, sweet biscuity malt and honey flavor, coarse but not too strong bitterness, much too sweet. Not good, doesn’t resemble a saison.

pint 9 shared poured a clear highly carbonated orange color with white head. the aroma was nicely hopped which I thought a little strange for a saison. mild saison nose as well..the flavor was more of the same nice dry hop finish to this one. light and refreshing.
