750ml poured into a tulip.
Hazy gold with 1 finger of white head. Moderate-heavy carbonation.
Pear, apple, lemon, dough, peach and apricot.
Golden apple pulp, bosc pear and drops of lemon juice. Doughy bread, raw grains and spelt. Hints of apricot and nectarine. Finishes with notes of potpourri, dried grass and pink peppercorn. An earthy bitterness lingers.
Light bodied, crisp, dry and clean.
This doesn't have the Saison yeast profile that I was hoping for. There's no funk, only some potpourri and pepper. It's a very Americanized Saison but it's still a nice beer.

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.
