Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.

The beer is pale yellow with a thin ring of white head. the aroma offers grainy, herbal teas, light spice. The flavor is a bit odd and muddled. Grainy with some malt and earth tones. Fairly light in body. This was ok.

Poured on-tap at the brewpub and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a pale, yellow-gold coloring with a thin, sparse, filmy white surface coat. Nose of herbal and Belgian spice, with a heavy roasted grain character, as well as nutmeg, coriander, and clove spicing. Toasty backbone, with a heavily spiced forward flavor. Dark, old world fruit mixes in with some funky notes on the palate. Smooth and balanced, making the beer very drinkable. Spicy blend into the aftertaste, with a clean finish. Very drinkable.

Enjoyed at the BBF. This beer is according to the guys at the booth (the ones who added this beer to the database), a different beer from Le Saisonneire.

A - Wow! Pours an awesome straw coloured crystal clear hue with a big billowy head that fades to leave sticky lacing.

S - Great saison notes here with good belgian funk and lemongrass, along with light floral hops and light belgian yeasts.

T - Just like the nose there are really nice, pleasant barnyard funk along with bright floral hops and some light pepperiness. Light sweet malt as well.

M - Just excellent mouthfeel. Great carbonation and so crisp and refreshing. The low ABV makes this super sessionable!

O - Yeah, we all came back time and time again for some CBC brews and this was a favorite of the ladies of our group. Great saison and definately worth buying a pint of at the brewery if available.

Served in a tulip. Poured a hazy, orange-gold with a quarter inch, bright white head. Delicate strands of lacing present during the session and exhibit excellent retention. Nose expresses citrus, coriander, clove and a trace of grass. Taste follows nose with the addition of a trace of candi sugar and a suggestion of diacetyl. Mouthfeel is light in body with a lively carbonation that leaves a residual bite at the back of the throat. All and all, I have to say that I was quite impressed by the tremendous amount of flavor present in a 4% abv beer; however, that aspect also detracts from its sessionability in that the spice and buttery character gets to be a little much. If those aspects could be pared down a little this beer would be really quite fantastic.

Had on tap at the brewpub.

Huge fluffy pillowy head fades slowly with lacing, over mostly clear golden straw color.

Nose has some light toasty malts, straw, wheat like, lemongrass, light spicy and lemony and floral hops, hint of Belgian yeast fruit, and very light spices.

Taste starts with a creamy malt, light straw and toasted wheat, touch of sweet pale malts, some lemongrass, light lemony hops, light spices, mild grassy and floral hops as well. Bit of a chewy like farmhouse straw. Finishes a bit sticky and malty, straw, decent bitterness, little sweet still, and a taste of pure malted fresh pale malts.

Mouth is slightly lighter bodied decent carb, little sticky finish.

Overall pretty good, would have liked it a bit drier and maybe more spices, but light, easy drinking and pretty tasty, nice hop character.
