So I finally tried this beer after letting it bottle condition for a few weeks, and I have to say that I was pretty pleased with it. My tasting notes are as follows:
A: Pours a clear, straw yellow with a couple of fingers of head that very quickly dissipate.
S: Lots of jasmine aroma up front along with a sweet candy sugar smell as well as notes of pear, banana, and ripe fruit in general.
T: Again, jasmine, and Belgian candy sweetness up front that fade into some notes of toasted grain, and then hints of pear, and nuttiness.
M: Dry, crisp, lightly effervescent. The body was quite light as well.
O: Good flavor transitions from sweet to dry, and seems to match the saison style pretty well.
I think it went pretty well for my first foray into gluten free brewing, and I'd probably only make minor modifications to this recipe in the future. Maybe a touch more hop character, or a little less dry, but not much.
