4.22/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Brilliantly clear, pale orange with a creamy, light tan head that holds and laces well. Well carbonated and effervescent, with constant streams of bubbles fighting their way to the top.

Aroma is soft and rustic, with a lot of floral notes and orange peels. Hefty amount of tropical fruit esters, with pineapple coming in the strongest. Firm toasted malt base. Hints of medicinal phenolics and yeasty spiciness. Tiny suggestion of vanilla too.

Flavor begins a bit on the sweet side, with a fleshy fruitiness and chewy floral character. Full of pineapple, orange, pear, and apple. Midway, the toasted malt base shows itself, only to be overpowered by a late hit of earthy hop bitterness. Phenolics are present, but subdued. Fair amount of white peppery, yeasty spiciness is consistent the whole way, along with a bright orange peel flavor that lasts deep into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is on the thinner side of medium, but thankfully thickens up a bit with the considerable yeast pour at the end. Somewhat dry finish.

Not as mind blowingly good as their regular Saison, but extremely well done and tasty. Another winner from possibly the best small brewer in the country.

this ones really strong on the aroma. the aromas are really like a garden of many different flowers, some sage. its really really floral, a bit herbal. the taste is a bit less intense thank fully, but its still hard to swallow. not sure about this one, for me anyway

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.75

"...ale with a variety of flowers, including L. augustifolia, A. nobilis, C. officinallis and a generous amount of H. lupulus." After some googling that equals lavendar, yarrow, dandelion and hops.

Gold with a lumpy blanket of white foam on top. Clear to cloudy depending on first or last pour.

Smells like green bananas and must. Tastes very spicy with a burnt agave nectar sweetness which is really, really nasty.

This was a drainpour.
