Pours a hazy yellow with a thins white head. Aromas of yeast and spice. Flavor is spicy with some of the Belgian yeast slightly coming through and some citrus but nothing really dominating the other. Overall not bad but nothing to write home about.

A very light but lively saison, ideal for sipping on a hot porch or at a ballgame. Crisp, beautiful citrus notes with a balance of aromatic aromas. Loved this one, very lively C02 and beautiful pale yellow pour. Swell.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Yoav. Hazy yellow to pale golden. Aroma of sage, a hint of zaíatar, more spices and a bit of yeasty fruitiness. Fruity and yeasty flavor with spices, sage, and a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

This is a very light saison with a touch of pepper and citrus. Just a hint of belgian yeast, but this is more like a classic summer ale with a touch of belgian.

Bottle, as pictured. I really enjoyed this...a lot. Very sweet with nice pepper fizziness. Light and orange/lemon citrus feel to it. Perhaps relies a little too heavy on the spices but I liked it.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Bangers and Lace. Pours hazy yellow. Weak grapefruit aroma. Flavor is mostly grapefruit. Not getting much spice here. Maybe the slightest touch of nutmeg in the finish. Donít really know where they get off calling this a saison. Itís ok. I can see why some hopheads might like this (but probably think itís too weak)

Draft at 33 West Ale House & Grill. Poured Yellow, hazy, nice white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is fruity and floral, some hops in there too. Taste is malty, kind of bready, there are some spices in there too, very sweet with a bit of bitterness towards the end. Nice and very drinkable beer.
