Can at NHC> Pours a straw color, light haze and white head. Nose has a good ester phenol balance, low fruit and peppery notes. On tasting, crisp with a light body. Subtle pils malt and moderate balancing bitterness. Clean and refreshing. Nice stuff. cheap (5862) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2013
from a can nice foggy pour with a good fading head. lighter yeasty aroma. yes, beldgie yeast is prominent. stronger alky hit with a background of medium astringency. wew, that yeast is so there, almost smacking you in the face. I swear there are some alarmingly volatile fumes reaching my olfactory. finish is all this and a unique kick not had lately. not sure what to think but i’m not impressed.

Pours a cloudy light yellow color with a 3 finger white head that sticks around a while. Aromas of light banana, heavy clove and spice. Taste is simple - banana, clove, white pepper. Thin mouthfeel but very, very refreshing. Pretty good. johnnnniee (4312) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 1, 2013

12oz can via 6 pack from Crossroads. Poured a cloudy straw body with a smaller bright white foamy head. Aroma is probably the best part of this beer, Belgian yeast, spice, dry bread crusts, lemon, bubble gum and some banana skins. Body is slightly watery with lots of big bubble carbonation. Flavor of bread crusts, spice, yeast, banana peel. podey (638) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2013

No canning information.
Appearance: The body is hazy with a pale straw hue. The head is tall and white with great retention and leaving lots of lacing before settling into a foamy thick white coating.
Aroma: The aroma has slightly tart lemon, with a prominent spicy dough presence and hints of floral notes.
Taste: Hints of lightly tart lemon greets the tongue immediately which overlies a spicy and doughy base. The finish has hints of perfume, but the light lemon and mild spicy dough base make up the flavor here.
Palate: Light and crisp, moderate to highly carbonated.
Overall: This is a great saison, especially when it’s available for $7.99 for a six pack. This is on par with many Belgian saisons I’ve had.
