22 oz bottle poured into a tulip. 7.9% abv, Release #27
A: Straw colored body, slightly hazy. White colored head builds fast and quickly recedes to a thin film of tight bubble son the surface, with a white ring and lacing on the glass.
S: Belgian yeast scents abound on the nose: white pepper, cloves, lemongrass, and a hint of green apples.
T: Follows the nose. Slightly malty up front with a quick transition to the yeast flavors of spices, pepper and cloves, that hold all the way through to the finish. The apples are more notable in the flavor than aroma, but not excessive. Finishes clean, with minimal after taste.
M: Light body, with a gentle carbonation. Body is dry. The tartness of the apples is present but again the apple character is not overwhelming.
O: If you never read the label, you'd think this was just a high-quality saison, with a slightly more fruity character. The apple character is definitive, but not overwhelming. It complements and enhances a very high-quality example of a great style. Great beer, maybe even greater because it comes in such small batches you have no choice but to savor every sip.
