The beer poured into the chalice lightly hazy pale golden with an off-white and frothy tall moussy head which fell slowly to coat the glass.

The aroma was fruity with a light citrusy component and an earthy hop presence. The spice presence was a nice pepper compliment to the fruit. Also notable were peaches and a light bit of a corn note. As it warmed a bit of cinnamon spice aroma came forth.

The flavor was nicely bittered with an earthy presence. The flavor was never sweet but seemed a bit so on the palate through the substantial bittering. The flavor contained a nice spice character of mainly pepper. Some of the hop flavor was lightly citrusy and a bit grassy. The flavors all worked well together to form and interesting and complex meld. The citrus and spice were excellent.

The finish was dry with a lasting bittering, spice and light bit of corn pleasantly into the aftertaste and beyond. The body was medium and with a fairly high carbonation level and a creamy mouthfeel. Farmhouse character was just beginning to form, but this beer is still one to seek out. Awesome job!

750 ml corked and bailed bottle. Thanks Brian!

Bottle purchased at the Foodery, Northern Liberties, Philadelphia. Best by date 11/13/14.

Hazy golden body, crowned with a creamy foam head. Very good head retention and lacing, eventually dissipates to a cap and ring.

Very pleasant aroma of light malt, green grassy hops, some tropical fruit notes, brett, and spice.

A very fine tasting saison, with bready malt, lemon and tropical fruit, and interesting yeast flavor, with a strong element of brettanomyces yeast with flavors of band-aid and a little copper penny. It is strongly hopped with notes of green grassy hops that linger in the long finish, and turns progressively bitter, finishing up like orange rind. There is a lot going on in this beer that is hard to describe, but it is definitely complex, interesting, very well balanced, and tasty.

Body is medium and the carbonation is moderate, giving this a slightly creamy mouthfeel.

A saison that is defined by a good yeast strain(s) that is interesting, complex, hoppy, and well balanced. Love getting all this flavor in a brew that is 7.5% ABV--could drink loads of this stuff, but this was my last bottle.
