Pours a hazy shade of yellow, reminiscent of pineapple juice. Half a finger of a pure white head.

A nice smelling beer. The first thing your nose is hit with is fruity notes of pear, white grape, and banana. This is quickly followed by an earthiness and generic herbal notes (though I do get subtle distinct notes of what could be thyme or rosemary).

Taste matches the aroma quite well. Fruity up front with a bit of sweetness. In come the herbal notes and it actually finishes quite dry and bitter. Nice balance.

The beer is medium bodied with a medium-light carbonation.

Over all, a nice offering. It strikes a nice balance between being refreshing yet interesting and nuanced, a quality I like to see in saisons. Would be a nice beer with food, maybe some roasted meat and fall vegetables.

Poured from the bottle a hazy golden-orange color with one finger of bright white head. Some sediment in the glass – most left behind in the bottle.

Earthy aroma of horse blanket and yeast with lighter green apple, pear and herbal notes.

The taste was bright and tart with green apple, pear, banana, pepper and yeast.

Medium bodied and crisp with a light-to-moderate carbonation.

A very nice Saison out of Quebec from Hopfenstark.
