superspak (4989) - Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2016
Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 5/6/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, orange, peach, pear, apricot, apple, peppercorn, light clove, biscuit, light honey/toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malt, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, peach, pear, apricot, apple, peppercorn, light clove, biscuit, light honey/toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Moderate yeast spiciness and light herbal hop bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, peach, pear, apricot, apple, peppercorn, biscuit, light honey/toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malt, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from yeast spiciness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/creamy/sticky, and fairly crisp balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol for 6.5%. Overall this is a great saison. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malt, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, easy, and fairly crisp/clean to drink. A bit on the malty side for the style; but still stays spicy/drying enough to feel like a saison. A very enjoyable offering.

Pint can. Spicy Belgian yeast aroma with notes of pepper, clove, floral hops, apricot and peach. Pours clear golden colored with one finger of off white head that has excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with spicy Belgian yeast and clove flavors with a good amount of pepper as well. Finishes smooth and dry with sweet apricot and peach flavors as well as some floral hops. Pretty good saison.

George999 (442) - Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2016
From can, the pour is a bright golden rod, clear, good carbonation and thick white head. The aroma is yeast (possibly Belgium strain?), green apples, a light note of bananas. The taste is crisp apples, slightly sweet, and a nice ale overall flavor. The finish is a little bitter , sweet and good level of malts. The mouthfeel is medium.
