22 oz. bottle served in a Pretty Things wine style glass. Bottled March, 2013. Thanks to dazedandconfused for the glass and beer!
A: Pours a hazy apricot color with a pure white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a bubble ring that leaves some sticky lace down the glass.
S: Great yeast presence up front. Some clove with a mild banana note. Some fruity esters with a little peppery bite. There's a touch of lemon sharpness as well.
T: More malty in the taste than the nose. Lemon pith, slightly bitter, with some heavy doses of peppery yeasty. White pepper is the main flavor with some cracker malts and a touch of sweetness. As it warms there is a slight funk on the back end.
M: Medium to light bodied with a medium high carbonation level. Nice and crisp.
O: Pretty solid saison overall. Nothing otherworldly, but I would have liked a more assertive hop presence on this American style and maybe a little more funk to the yeast.

1 PT. 6 FL.. OZ. bottle
Served in a tulip glass
Bottled April 2013
A - It is pale yellow in color and hazy. There are small particles of yeast suspended in it. It is topped with a couple inches of white head.
S - It has a nice fresh lemon scent. I also detect a little must.
T - The taste has some lemon and grass flavors. Then some bitterness sets in. At first I thought the bitterness was too much for this beer, but after half a bottle the flavors are meshing well.
M - Medium.
O - This is a refreshing saison. It hits the spot after working in a near 90° day. The bitterness is more than I care for in this style, but it is not overwhelming and compliments the lemon and must, so I won't complain.
