The aroma is very faint and nearly indiscernible. However, hints of grain and yeast are detected.

Flavor

Mouthfeel

Its feel is crisp with a dry finish. Medium body and nearly high carbonation.

Overall

Its appearance fails to inspire and its aroma is barely noticeable. The palate is nice with its blend of hops, spices, and esters. And a peppy feel keeps it moving. Above The Clouds may only be a satisfactory Saison, but it’s still an enjoyable brew.
