Poured into a Gavroche tulip. Pours a cloudy light straw amber with a huge white head; a careful pour produced a half glass of foam. After settling, left massive, pillowy lacing. Mild aroma of saison yeast, apple, pear and light stone fruit, mild citrus, spicy. Flavor is also subdued, but reveals interesting flavors gradually. Starts with light stone fruit and apple, light Belgian yeast, coriander, then dries out a bit revealing more coriander, floral light fruit and light citrus. The finish is light fruit, moderate spice bitterness and a bit of caramel that is surprising in the semi-dry finishing flavors. Light to medium bodied with nice peppery carbonation. A subtle, but complex hybrid of light Belgian ale and saison; both yeast styles seem to show their presence during the taste. Fruit is mellow, but complex with apple and citrus family fruit all in the mix. Very nicely done and a pleasure to drink. I buy saisons with trepidation because some are too wild yeast forward and tart for my taste, but this is the kind of brew that convinces me to keep trying. Excellent. I have really enjoyed everything from this brewery and look forward to their other ales.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, grass, and yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with earth, grass, and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a high amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a fairly intense hop bitterness that I wasn't expecting for the style.
