Chilled in the fridge, served at 50deg F exactly. Poured into a hill farmstead stem.
A: from a mild pour this beer gives forth a mild reaction forming a 1cm white froathy head. Tightly packed Co2 bubbles, cloud like. The second pour was more reactive and gave forth some nice big frog eyes! The color of this beer is dark for what you would think a regular saison would be. the sankt hans beer here now dominated the color. It is amber, clear yet cloudy.

A: MMM citrus melon right up in the front nose followed by a strong white wine waft. The saisons take the back end of the nose giving forth their individual qualities, and if I had time I could pick them apart. This smells fantastic, and yes I really pick up the mimosa/juicy qualities in this aroma.

T: its like a lighter version of juicy. A wet splash of melon/citrus fruit followed by the individual components of the beer. Out of all beers involved I pick up sankt hans and juicy. It does have a subtleness like clara however and I would not downplay the involvement. This beer has layers and depths.

M: Crisp, smooth, perfect level of carbonation. Initially you get a nice wave/wet splash in your mouth followed by a clean crisp sensation.

O: I loved this beer, more so than the others in the series due to the involvement of the fruiter qualities mixed with the wine barrel flavors. I thought that all the individual saisons gave forth their proper qualities and would have loved to do a formal tasting involving all partners in this beers make up! A+
