On-tap at the brewery's Wilderness Pub. This the second time this beer has been on the pub's "Brewmaster's Special" list.
Saison arrived with a cloudy peach hue. The beer was drawn within a 1/4" of the rim, so there wasn't much headroom. The head that was there was small and tight, with an eggshell tint. It fell to a thin film and left decent lacing.
Round two with this beer was better than round one. This batch had a nice lemon sourdough aroma out front, plus healthy doses of coriander, straw and cut grass. In the mouth, a pear and green grape sweetness comes through. Bitterness is well balanced and carries a pepper and grass theme. The alcohol is well masked in the flavor, but adds a nice warmth going down. The grainy body has nice density, without being to thick. The carbonation could stand a little extra vigor.
Overall, this is a very nice offering from Boulder. They've been toying with Belgian styles quite a bit lately. Perhaps some new beers are headed into their lineup?
