Rating no 125 for this beer, I’ve had the pleasure of working through a fresh sixer of cans. Most noticeable in the nose is the heavy cardamom, but there are other lighter spicy and floral notes as well, over a yeasty golden ale base. Pours lemon yellow with a creamy bright white head. Taste also strongest on cardamom, medium bitterness and low sweetness undercut by the herbal/weedy overtones and mild astringency, love the aggressive spiciness and toned-down mouthfeel (not overly aggressive carbonation, more of a medium body). Some lemony citrus and cream notes, smooth and mildly yeasty finish. Alcohol not a big factor in the flavor. Has good repeatability, really enjoy it as a daily saison.

From can. Floral and fragrant, spicy with cardamon and allspice notes. Orange and orange peel with a little vanilla. Medium golden clear with thin white lacing head. Medium body with heavy carbonation. Starts sweet and spicy with cardamon and bitter orange peel. Bitter spice and hop finish with carbonic tang. Lasting bitterness with orange zest sweetness. coolfunnj (374) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2013
aroma leaves a peppery and spicy impression with a little funky yeast as well...cloudy yellow with half inch white pillowy head leaves some lacing not too much...taste..would be perfect on a 90 degree evening if we ever get another one around here..lemon cough drop,pepper,a hint of mint..light bodied and like seltzer water on the palate..overall..i like saisons especially as hot weather beers so im a bit partial but this tastes good to me zvikar (6149) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - APR 24, 2013

12oz can. Pours a hazy golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma of lemon, grass, Belgian yeast, and light spices (cardamom and pepper). Taste is lemon peel, grass, funky yeast, cardamom, and black pepper. alobar (3778) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2013
Pours straw yellow with a white foamy head. Aroma of menthol, lemon, banana, and bubble gum. Bubble gum, lemon, and banana flavor with spice, and menthol. Creamy and well-balanced-a very nice beer. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 13, 2013
On draft. It pours a light yellow with a white head. The aroma is very floral with menthol, lemon pepper, clove, a little banana and gum. The flavor is the same. Lots of menthol. Nice one. mrmartin (780) - New York, New York, USA - APR 13, 2013
Clear straw with big quickly disappearing head. A Strongly spiced nose. Light sticky body. Tons of spice. Way too much spice (cardamom?)

On tap at Boneshaker. The "Spring Saison" is over-the-top spiced.
Light golden pour with little head. Nose is way too floral, lavender, corriander up the nose. Sweet and Flat throughout. Light body. If the spices got turned down a bit it would be a lovely saison but as is its way to much...
Bottle->tulip. Translucent yellow with large white head, quickly dissipates leaving no lace. Aroma: strong herbs, yeast, spices. Taste: heavy spice, bread, funky yeast. Decent sweet and sour saison.
