3.86/5 rDev -1.8%
22oz Bottle dated 3/7/14 - so pretty fresh - especially for east coast.
Poured in Achouffe tulip. Pours a golden color - lots of carbonation and thick which bubbly head. Aromas of peppery hay and bready malts with a fruity finish. Taste is malty, peppery, but very fruity and almost sweet. It tastes more like a Belgian Strong Pale - Duvel like...good but not as classic saison as I like. A nice touch of hop and white wine in the finish. I would like to see a bit more dryness in the mouthfeel but overall its a pretty good brew. While maybe not the best Saison ive ever had, its still good .

Bomber bottle w/ a 3-7-14 bottling date
Pours lightly hazed darker golden. Off white head, that leaves decent bits and irregular bars of lace.
Pleasant tropical fruit nose
More tropical fruits, including melon on the palate with light pepper.
Nicely done, highly enjoyable and well crafted. Helped wash down some BBQ in a palate cleansing and fat cutting manner.
Go get some.
