Poured from bottle with wrapper dated 1 5MEI 2010 to a NBB globe. The beer pours a hazy golden straw color with a billowing 4 finger bubbly white head. Decent retention and leaves gobs of lacing. The nose is light and crisp but also complex. Hints of pilsen malt base along with a tart fruity character. Sweet pear, apple, and a hint of citrus. No alcohol detected. Yeast is not overpowering in the least but rather brings everything together. Very nice. The Flavor builds upon the nose. Sweet with some tarty fruitiness and hint of sour tones. Begins crisp but ends smooth and creamy. Light and airy with a mild bitterness. Finishes with a slight lingering bitter with a fair amount of fruit on the tongue. Sweet but not overly so. Very approachable and drinkable. Lighter side of medium boded and well carbonated. Overall, this is a very good saison. Very drinkable. I had shed away from the price tag at $16.95/bottle but finally took the plunge. Glad I did. Excellent.

750 ml crown capped, paper wrapped bottle.



Appearance: Pale yellow with a slight haze. Huge white rocky head with great retention, ultimately leaves some floating piles of whipped cream. Sheets of sticky lacing. 4.5



Smell: Sweet pale malt, lemon, a little pepper and other spice, a hint of tartness. Spicy, herbal hops. Quite good. 4.5



Taste: Very hoppy with a snappy lemon flavor and some tartness. An almost clove like flavor near the end a long hops bitterness. There's enough sweetness from the malt and ester fruitiness to balance out the hoppiness. 4.5



Mouthfeel: Very soft and creamy feeling in the mouth, but the finish is clean, dry, and refreshing. 4.0



Overall: This is really a great saison. Highly hopped, but still loaded with complex saison aroma and flavor elements. Delicious. 4.5

Wow. Sooo nice. For me this was the best of 11 solid beers I tried today in a series of flights. I liked this one so much it was the only one I did a repeat on. I need to go back and have a full pint of it because I don't know what exactly I was tasting. It was sort of a honey taste but less syrupy and sticky than a honey taste. It was like honey more floral and focused than simply sweet. It was just delicious. If I could ask for anything it might be more of a back end, a little something more robust in the back of the throat to exhale through, but I'll take this any day. Beautiful to drink on a beautiful day.

Was this the winner of the night? I thought so.

L: trouble, whitebeer look, because of the wheat (?); good top;
S: you can keep on smelling this beer; it differs every time, flowery, orange, dried yellow fruit;
T: this is also an exploration; flowery, nice bitterishness;
M: just very nice, great alcohol and aftertaste;
O: almost perfect beer!

Picked this bottle up at State Line in Elkton, MD. Served in a Mikasa tulip.

Pours a nice straw color with a good white head and a bit of lacing. The nose carries some light lemon and citrus plus some hay and wheat. Faint earth and spice there, but not quite as much as the citrus component. Good wheat and some sight citrus in the flavor. Light body with good carbonation and a dry finish.

Pours a cloudy light hay color with a fluffy 2 fingers of white head. Massive white lacing.

The nose is very tart smelling and has a good amount of barnyard/horse blanket to it. There is also a sweet fruit scent noticed.

The taste is indeed sweet. Similar to a lemon in taste. Following are some pretty sour and tart notes that then develop into the barnyard funk that makes this brew tasty. There is a wheat like aftertaste.

The mouthfeel is light-medium with a pleasent juciness to it. Pretty damn nice. Carbonation levels work just fine.

Overall, this is a mighty fine sour that is super drinkable and with just enough sourness and sweetness for balance. Good stuff
