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.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 11/13/2014. Pours lightly cloudy golden amber color with a big 3 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with insane retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with tons of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Beautiful looking brew. Aromas of big lemon zest, pear, apple, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, floral, grass, herbal, light funk, and earthy yeast spices. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast esters with some light malt. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, floral, grass, herbal, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus, light fruit, pepper, clove, wheat, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast esters with a light-moderate malt balance; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely incredible saison style. Fantastic balance and compelxity of fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; and extremely smooth and crisp to sip on. One of the best Saisons I have had.
