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

a. See through yellow on the pour with a huge head that settles but is at about 1 finger throughout the beer.
s. Pepper, wine (fermented grape), orange
t. blended well - orange, pepper then a bit of bitter at the finish
m. Smooth and very easy drinking. The killer carbonation does not get in the way.
o. Overall this beer is very, very good. Do not usually like this style, but everything is well balanced. No coriander taste to the yeast.
