Pours clear with a deep golden amber color. The pour produces a frothy two finger head with good retention. Spotty watery lacing.
The aroma is faint but a blend of yeast, clove, hints of banana, and a light caramel malt are detectable.
The taste is similar to the aroma with a blend of barnyard funky yeasts, light clove, hints of banana and some sweet caramel malts. Flavors seem a bit muted and not as bold as most saisons that I have had.
Light to medium body with medium to high level of carbonation. watery mouth feel with a dryness on the palate.
Overall, an enjoyable beer, but seems to be lacking in bold flavors that normally accompany this style. The flavors are good, just muted, but still an enjoyable brew on a hot day.
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver.'" - Jack Handy
