look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle marked best by 12/19/14 poured into a Town Hall stemware on 3/4/11.

Pours with tons of carbonated head and fizzy bubbling and 3 fingers of head or powdery white head. Color is a pretty golden honey yellow.

Smells crisp with fruit and spices. Reminds me of summer.

Tastes of spices, and citrus on top of a nice yeasty malt backbone and a wee bit of hop fruit and bitterness.

Mouthfeel is dry and super crisp. Lots of tingling bite all over the tongue, mouth and lips. Finishes with a little resin smoothness.

Drinkability is good but not great. A little to crisp for my taste but I could really enjoy a bottle of this on the beach or on a sunny summer day up at the farm. I don't think I will actively seek this one out but if it falls in my lap I will enjoy it with a smile on my face.

A: Pours a hazy medium yellow in color with heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising pretty quickly from the bottom of the glass as well as some straw yellow + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a three to four finger tall dense foamy off-white head that very slowly reduces to a half finger thick layer covering the entire surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of pale malts, spices, lemon citrus, and floral hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of pale malts with slightly stronger flavors of lemon citrus and spicy yeast. There is a light to moderate flavor of floral hops that impart a light amount of bitterness in the finish which lingers slightly.

M: Light to medium bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp, almost prickly upfront and finishes smooth. Hints of dryness.

O: A very nice saison but one that feels a little bigger than some of the others - alcohol is hidden but slightly present just under the surface which makes it more of a sipping saison than a truly refreshing one. Definitely worth grabbing.

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.
