a real nice light saison. wheat malt driven, with a great yeast strain happening. pours real cloudy and pale light orange, with a dying off white head and good lace. I smell grazing cattle and white wheat in equal proportion, nothing out of the ordinary, but some real creative stuff here too. almost a Belgian triple, with candy sugar and spunky yeast. I taste wheat malt on the lighter side and a flocculated yeast that just adds tannic funk and coagulated protein density to a beer that should be real delicate otherwise. not a brewers error, but a critique nevertheless. great carbonation and a medium body that would be heavy if it didn't work so damn well. overall a great first beer from this crew, and something I am real eager to get back into. special stuff, and being American made makes it epic compared to its peers. worth your hard earned shrappy!

12oz bottle from the Potsdam NY IGA for $3.50

Appearance - Slightly hazy yellow colour with a large size fizzy/frothy white coloured head. There is a high amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes.

Smell - Breads/grains, clove, lemons

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste breads, grains, and citrus juice/zest. There is also some clove and a dry spiciness and a bit of a funk.

Overall – Very drinkable and enough flavour to keep you interested. I actually really enjoyed this one and will be buying more the next time I see it. I also really like the smaller format in 4 packs.

Pours a slightly firey golden with a white head. Aroma is spicey, some ripe banana, pepper, atouch of lemon and grassy. Flavor is spicey,, lemon, a touch of toasted bread, pepper and a touch of some earthy hops. Again a little alcohol comes through, which detracts just a little. A crisp active mouthfeel. Overall, solid saison that I am really happy to see in Colorado. One I will buy again.
