22 oz bottle dated December 2014; Pours a pale gold with diminishing head and fine lacing.

Aromas are light and pleasant; yeast, herbs, green pepper, pickle and floral hops.

Flavor is light and dry. The saison yeast is quite tame. It's grassy, slightly floral and carries a touch of peppery spice. The herbal smell doesn't quite carry through to the taste but there are some aged hop flavors and a moderate bitterness. There is a subtle mineral quality that comes across as slightly salty. That's where I am getting the pickle. There is some crackery malt in the finish that takes away slightly from the experience.

Mouthfeel is light with fine, active carbonation.

This is a good beer that is refreshing, relatively simple and easy to drink. I enjoyed it but it has some subtle off flavors and lacks refinement and complexity for a saison.

Just wasn't feeling it. Floral and citrus flavors with a bit of spice but it wasn't appealing my taste buds as it left an odd grassy aftertaste.

Poured a lemony gold with lots of free flowing bubbles. Creamy and bumpy white head, but if was gone pretty quick. Funky apple, sweet and sour aroma; spice phenols really dominate from there on out. Very altruistic and light, semi dry feel. Tart and quite peppery. Sweet outweighs sour. General berry, starfruit, banana, honeydew.
