Pours a fairly hazy golden color with a thin, foamy half inch ivory head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving spotty lacing.
The aroma begins earthy and minerally, with the sweetness of confectioners sugar, soft fruit, and must adding intrigue. It's fairly perfumey. Apricot emerges as it warms.
Flavor is more bold, with pear and a wine-like background matching up with hints of lime, mangoes, and grainy malt. The finish is slightly dry and bready.
Body is moderate, with spritzy carbonation that helps lighten the mouthfeel.
Overall, a nice change of pace from the stouts and winter brews associated with the season.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
