on tap at devils den - served in chalice
Pours a hazed golden color with a thick, frothy white head. Retains for a bit with bubbly effervescence, leaving a coating of film resting on top and patchy lacing on the glass.
Earthy and citrusy in the nose with hints of cracked pepper and orange peel. Light yeasty funk and phenols with some lingering fruit sweetness.
Orange peel and peppery spice up front followed by touches of clove and ginger. Mild backbone with a soft yeast component, adding a touch of funkiness to the beer. Straw and biscuit with some fruit sweetness. Finishes dry and crisp.
Lighter medium body, well carbonated, extremely drinkable and clean on the tongue. I've had this before and somehow never reviewed it - there's certainly more expressive and innovative saisons out there but this is a refreshing example of a clean, quaffable brew.
Serving type: on-tap

750 ml bottled 6/10/2013. Poured into Lost Abbey Teku, reviewed live.
A - Burnt orange with a slight haze. Small white head that dissipates a bit too fast, but does leave solid lacing while it sticks around.
S - Intense orange peel and fruity Belgian esters. Don't get any ginger that Lost Abbey describes, little to no funk/acidiy.
T - Bitter orange, peppery phenols ov a sweet malt backbone. Earth hops in the background, very slight alcohol presence. The ever so slightest lemon acidity shows up as it warms.
M - Medium bodied, high carbonation, drying finish with a lasting pepper linger.
