A classic, clean example of the saison style, this pours a hazy straw color with a billowy head. Initial scents of yeasty spice, white pepper, bread dough and a touch of fresh grass waft from the glass, with a faint secondary hint of barnyard. The -medium-bodied mouthfeel offers ample carbonation, which keeps the creamy flavors of banana, pear and honeyed lemon lifted and brisk through the spicy, dry finish. The coriander, pepper and yeasty characteristics become more apparent with warming. A well-balanced and complex offering.
