Notes/Commercial Description:
Our interpretation of the rustic Wallonian Saison style is a harmonious blend of rustic grains, spicy yeast and unique sauvignon blanc tones. Inviting lemon grass and gooseberry meet peppery spice and fresh grain aromas. Spicy Belgian yeast create a complex yet dry and refreshing canvas with splashes of citrus and stone fruit with a bright tropical white wine finish. Hop bitterness is assertive yet harmonious rounding out slightly tart and refreshing.

Picked up a bomber at BevMo in late April for $5.99. Bottled on 3/7/14.

Beer poured golden with a beautiful white head in the classic Belgian style.

Nose is grainy, apple, white wine like.

Taste is grainy, peppery, some apple and grapes.

Mouthfeel is heavier than expected for the style but nice and lively.

Overall this is a tasty brew and a nice representation of the style.

Serving type: bottle

Really nice saison-style ale. Really good flavor and not too much bite at the end. It goes down well and is great for any everyday beer. It also packs a nice little punch as you can't really feel the alcohol but it's certainly there. This one is great for a summer bbq.

Serving type: on-tap
