Batch 25 bottled May 2011. Thanks jctribe25

Pours a beautiful golden yellow with a minimal, perfectly-white head. Head full of tiny bubbles which laces to the glass slightly with he first sip, but less so with subsequent sips. Very difficult to see any fingers on the other side of this obviously unfiltered saison.

Suprisingly not much hits my nose, unless it is competing with the amaryllis next to me and the sage grass out the window. There's a hint of pepper, but not a lot else.

Exquisite. Slightly milky, largely peppery, with an orange / citrus flavor at the back end. This tastes wonderful!

This is superb, feeling exactly as it should to me. Good carbonation, nice and crisp. This just bounces around in my mouth. The crispness at the back is just the capper that goes perfectly with the dry front.

I WANT MORE! And at a "mere" 6.4% I can probably have another. And another. My only fear is that this is so good I may not know when to stop. Fortunately (or unfortunately, rather!) I only had the one bottle to enjoy!

3.79/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear gold with thin fizzy white head, settles quickly leaving a couple of wispy runs. Smell: herbal, lightly grainy and bready, rindy and unripe banana notes. Taste: semi sweet pale, light stone fruit and pineapple, very herbal finish. Long finish eventually dries out but has a residual soapiness. It's alright. Think I've heard more about this one than is deserved. Dec 2013 bottling.
