Pours gold with a thin white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, pepper and citrus. Taste is bitter, herbal with lots of pepper and some grapefruit. Nothing exciting but easy to drink and refreshing.

full bottle poured into glass and the body is light and lemon soda like at first. after some few minutes the flavors arrive banana, light coriander and clove with some sweetness, and the body mellows and wheatens. some malt and a soul of flavor as the brew layers. quite a morphing brew.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Green tinged golden liquid with a slim head of fine white foam. Creamy, spritzy feel. Very little bouquet. Mineral, white pepper, paper, earthy. Welcome taste just off dryness. An estery tropical note, phenolic bandage, medium to heavy bitterness in the finish. Lots of character for a little guy but too much bitterness and spice in the way of the saison greatest offerings: rustic simplicity and quaffability.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Always Ron's in Hagerstown, MD.
Clear, yellow-amber with an off-white head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of yeast, fruit, pine, floral perfume and mild earthy hops.
Taste of floral hops, earthy herbs and spice, year and pine. Much hoppier, or at least less malty, than your typical saison.
Medium body and medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Cloudy light gold. Frothy white head. Lots of spice in the aroma. Cardamon, clove, all spice, herbs, toasted grain. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery turning velvety texture, lively carbonation. Dry enough, but the spice tastes forced and infused, making one wonder what they’re masking in order to pull off a 4.5% saison. No nuances here.

355 ml bottle from wegmans in Niagara Falls ny. Clear light golden with a lasting white head. Nice light fruity and spicy nose. The flavour is way over spiced making it pretty much undrinkable. Not a session saison at all. Boooooooooooooooo!
