Brought this bomber back from New Belgium. Poured into a New Belgium chalice.
A: Pours a golden hue, clear, and a light 1/4 finger worth of head. A good amount of carbonation coming off the bottom of the glass, light lacing as it recedes.
S: Nose is of green apples, Lemongrass, a very light acidic note, and in the end I'm getting some Belgian yeast (although I know it's French yeast).
T: Taste is a bit tart, albeit very minuscule. Tartness is smoothed over by earthy yeast and citrus notes. I'm not keen to the passion fruit/prickly pear in this saison, but I'm definitely picking out some citrus and pear notes.
M: Medium- bodied, light and refreshing, as well as perfectly carbonated. Great hot summer day drink, but at 8.5% ABV, it was well disguised.
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
