Poured into a tumbler glass. Pours a clear, very light straw wit a big, stark white head. Head is slow to drop, leaving some chunky lacing.

Aromas of lactic sourness, peppery yeasty spice, and grainy malt.

Flavors of honeyed malt, peppery spice, mashed grain, mild bitterness. Finish is short, with honeyed malt and black pepper spice lingering.

Mouthfeel is light, dry, carbonic bite and yeasty bite. Good level of carbonation.

Overall a different take on a saison. Honeyed sweetness makes a nice touch.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #46 (Nov 2010):

Hazy pale-yellow color, decent lacing wrapped around the glass. Fresh herbs, nutty yeast, ripe pears and plums, and some fresh-cut grass is the collective of a very complex aroma. Crispness struggles to snap though the moderate body, which finally yields. Lemony, herbal and floral ... from bite to phenol to pleasant. Mild tartness is short but has enough muster to stand up to the malt. A little wet and malty in the semisweet finish. Pretty damn amazing, from a brewery not known for Belgian styles.

Thanks JMBH for a spot-on saison. Opaque fruity colour, modest head. Spicey saison, very drinkable and nicely malted.Some yeast more fruit including berry. Good balance, with significant taste.Only minor drawback was a bit much carbonation.Also a bit sweet bannana.

This beer has a light crisp flavor. Color is perfect. Reigning Australian Beer Cup winner beating out the Saison from Europe. The refreshing flavor adds to the delight of drinking this summer beer. Great way to beat the heat. The Saison is my favorite farm house style beer that Twisted Pine has offered.

Poured into a balloon glass.

An orb of light golden straw underneath a foamy white head. Bready yeast and faint pepper mingle with some banana aromas. The taste copies the aroma well and the cracked pepper emerges a little more, adding a nice spicy element. The beer goes down crisp.

Overall, a very tasty saison.

First had: on tap at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids & Solids, Longmont, CO

Poured a murky, bronzed yellow, bubbly, with a fluff of white head that retained well and left some patchy lace. Yeasty aroma, citrusy, with a good amount of spice and some grassiness. Drawing a fine line between a saison and a hefeweizen. Spicy yeast on the tongue, bready, fruity notes--banana, apricot, perhaps some blueberry--pepper and clove, grassy hops and lemon zest providing a snappy, dry finish. Medium bodied and complex. Very tasty and drinkable.
