Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Samuel906 on 03-05-2014

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.

A - White bubbly head over crystal clear pale blonde body. not the best retention or any lacing.

S - tangy citrus fruits and caramel

T - like the aroma, nice tiny citrus fruits with yeasty dough and bananas.

M - medium light body with moderate carbonation. Slick and very drinkable.

O - this was great nice and fresh and clean.
