From notes on September 6, 2012.
From a 750 ml bottle to a tulip.
A-The brew was hyper-carbonated and difficult to pour without wasting beer or waiting a while for the head to calm. The off-white head was slow to dissipate even after I got the beer into the tulip. The beer is very murky and has a light amber color.
S-The smell was kind of funky and grassy with a little bit of alcohol spice and sweetness. There was a slightly citrusy kick as well (oranges and lemons).
T-Taste was slightly sweet with light malts and a touch of funk...not that different from the smell. The alcohol is also noticeable, but not in-your-face. I also picked up a slightly herbal, grassy flavor...again, not that different than the smell.
M-Feel was lighter to medium bodied with lots of carbonation and a slightly dry finish.
O-I enjoyed this saison. It has a nice mix of grassy, herbal flavors and sweet, spicy citrus. A good summer brew in terms of flavor profile. The mouthfeel was great, lots of carbonation but easy drinking and crisp finishing. I will look for this again next spring/summer.
