ST: 12oz poured into a chalice.

A: Pale and hazy orange with a half-a-finger-nail white head.

S: Lemon, banana, earth, and funk.

T: Lots of bright citrus lemon joins with sweet malt and mineral earth. The finish is lemon peel.

M: Medium and smooth.

O: A very impressive offering. Wonderful flavor, complex, and enjoyable to drink. It goes well with food to boot. I highly recommend if you enjoy saisons or unfiltered beers.

A normal pour (stopping near the end to agitate of course) delivered a finger and a half of pearly white, and very fizzy head. This broke down to just a topcoat in a minute or so, and was down to a ring soon after. The body is a very murky light gold color, with very fine dissolved sediment floating around.

Smells very wheaty. Yeast strong as well, with a hint of spice. A very American take on the saison.

Wheat, yeast and biscuit make up most of the flavor. Some real good spiciness combined with a nice light refreshing grassiness on the end.

Light to medium bodied. Flows easily over the tongue and refreshes. Very high carbonation, tart and dry finish.

Poured from 12oz bottle to tulip. Bottle date 3/1/12:

Pours a hazy pear gold with a lively, noisy few fingers of white head. Plenty of beading, lacing is rather weak.

Super estery... wet grass, white grapes, black pepper, lemon zest... pretty inviting.

The taste offers a lot of the same dynamics as the nose with the addition of some milder sweet malts. Green apple, more grapes.

Smoother than some low ABV saisons I've had. Can't complain there.
