4.14/5 rDev +5.3%
Bottled 03/07/14, poured into a tulip
A- pours crystal clear bright yellow-golden straw color with a big foamy and sudsy white head that retains long after the pout, as carbonation bubbles continue to shoot up the glass, some short lasting lace left behind as it settles
S- peppery spice is immediately noticed from the yeast with aromas of lemon-grass and fresh grain. Stone fruit and other fruity tones kick in, before ending with earthy, musty and earthy aromas
T- fruity and peppery up front with notes of cellar must and yeast. The addition of dry hopping adds just enough bitter hops to provide a complimentary balance, slight tangy note on the back end that actually gives a vinous character, finishes dry with citrus peel, grain and lemon grass
M- medium body with moderate spritzy carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp-yet-dry finish, just a hint of alcohol lingers
O- another winner from FW, super-refreshing saison that hides the abv quite well. The dry finish leaves you wanting more

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.

Taste: golden apples, Sauvignon Blanc grapes, Belgian spices, pepper and hay
Mouthfeel: sweet start with a dry bitter finish, light bodied and high carbonation
