It's not really the saison buffoon from radical brewing but a very nice saison nonetheless. Perhaps a tad too much body, so more sugar might help, and less aromatic malt. The ginger add a really nice distinctive but complementary note to the saison yeast. I recommend the WL yeast blend - it doesn't stall like the du pont strain.
