750 ml pours a hazed peach hued body with a medium sized vanilla head. Attractive spiderweb lacing.
Aroma is dominated by white grapes with notes of black pepper, floral hops, and a faint hint of apricot.
Mouthfeel has a medium body and carbonation. Smooth and dry on the palate.
Taste is dominated by a chardonnay character which becomes a bit tiresome. Black pepper is subtle but about where it should be. There is a vague fruitiness, more like melon than apricots. Actually, I don't pick up any apricot at all. Floral hops provide a nice bitterness to balance the slightly sweet bready malt. Chardonnay comes on strong at the finish and dominates the aftertaste.
More of a chardonnay saison than an apricot/pepper one. Enjoyable and tasty but nothing like a classic saison. Very interesting, but I wish the apricots were in play.
