4.15/5 rDev -2.6%
Appearance: Quite the gusher and, as with many gushers, the head wasn't nearly what it should be once the volcano settled down; the liquid was a cloudy amber color and there was some dotty lacing
Smell: Fruity (with pear, apple, white grapefruit and banana) with a touch of honey; grassy and yeasty
Taste: Opens fruity, with the flavors detected in the aroma jutting forward; the grassy hops add balance in the mid-palate and the yeast and honey add complexity to the back end with spicy rye tones in the aftertaste; I note the finish is rather leathery and while this isn't the Brett version I wonder whether there might be some Brett in here
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: There is a lot going on in this Saison and even though it sat in my cellar for a few years, the hops are still making an impact; one of the better stateside Saisons I have tasted
