Lighter saison style. Nice mouthfeel. Slightly sweet. Nice lingering saison flavor. Not as dry as advertised, but good. Not spicy as I would've expected.

On tap;pour is clear golden with a modest white head that retains on the average side. The nose is slightly fruity, with a hint of baked bread, and a light spice note is present. This brew is slightly bitter, with a dab of honey for sweetness, finishing light and crisp. 574deadzone (1419) - North Central, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2012
On tap at Bell’s. Pours a slightly hazy straw color with a light cream colored head. Nose involves some light dust, citrus notes, flowers, and some melon: very pleasant. Taste is lightly sweet with a touch of bitterness: not big but in balance. Palate is crisp and light, almost pilsener-like. A nice light refreshing beer with some different character compared to other similar types of light beers. The Lady liked this one quite a bit. kbutler1 (1381) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Draft at Autumn Brew Review. Pours a straw yellow golden color with a white head. The aroma is that of biscuity, wheaty, and malty. Honestly, it might just be me but it smells like a strong pilsner. Medium/light mouthfeel. Sweet malt upfront taste with a lingering bitterness from the hops. Some toffee type taste as well. Overall, not bad. neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
On tap at the the Bell’s Eccentric Café in Kalamazoo, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear yellow-golden with no head. The nose has notes of apple and fruit, along with spice, yeast and a hint of earth. The flavour is somewhat lagerish with straw, pale malt, popcorn and delicate herbal hops. The finish is cleanish with some citrus and a hint of spice coming through. On the palate, it is light in body with a watery, slightly dry, texture and flat carbonation. Overall, this is a rather simple Bière de Garde with some pilsner qualities. Not a lot going on in this one. 2011-08-14
