A wonderfully clear and orange copper. A nice half-inch head and plenty of lively carbonation.
The aroma is tropical fruits, berries and just a hint of white pepper.
The beer is dry but not a crisp dry. The flavor is similar to the tropical fruit aroma. There is pineapple, starfruit and passion fruit with the addition of a bit of honeydew melon and peppery yeast esters.
This is a very interesting saison. I love the addition of prickly pear and the passion fruit. I think some brewers would be tempted to overwhelm the character of the saison with the fruit but this is well balanced. However, I think it would benefit from a better saison base recipe.
Serving type: bottle

Had on tap at Max's (from notes)
A: Copper with light lacing.
S: Lots of yeast and farmhouse scents. Wet blanket.
T: A bit of funk with subtle citrus but mostly farmhouse. Subdued odd earthy flavors/aftertaste.
M: Nice and prickly. Coarse bubbly.
O: I think the earthiness came from the prickly pear.
Serving type: on-tap
