A: Poured from the bomber into a Stella Artois glass on Thanksgiving Day 2012. Body is hazy golden with a big (2-finger) white head that retains well.
S: Wow - this is a very nice nose. I get the lemony Citra hops paired with a Belgian-type earthiness. It's both clean and slightly funky at the same time. A nice trick to pull off.
T: Not quite as exciting, taste wise, though it's really good stuff. Slight wheat tang, some earthiness, a hint of spice and then a clean lemony finish. Overall impression of "lightness," which I'm hoping will pair well with dinner - in this case, a heavy feast that could benefit from a lighter beer that won't weigh me down.
M: NIce palate-cleansing fizzy carbonation that reminds me of the better Belgians. Body is light-to-medium in heft, but drinks on the lighter side.
O: Good stuff. Really good stuff.

3.99/5 rDev -1.5%

Pastel honey color with a massive two and a half finger head of off-white. Almost meringue-like foam consistency.
Bright and lightly tangy farmhoues yeast in the nose with powdery spice notes, accenting the white sage, hints of pepper, and dry basil. Hints of lemon and chalky pale malts and slight tartness.
Very dry and very powdery. Almost champagne-like in carbonation and somewhat in flavor. White wine, dry white sage, coriander, yeast cake, soda crackers, hard water salinity, and apricot skins. Perhaps, a touch of grains of paradise.
Medium body with a medium piquant carbonation. Feels good.
Cellar Door is a tasty saison with a good deal of complex flavors and unique textures.
