Rare tick, thanks Mac!

Tons of head up top. Super malty/bready aroma, banana esters initially too. Fades to a more spicy, yeasty, traditional aroma. Strange.

Not much in the taste to separate it from other saisons. Intensely bitter yeast in the finish. A decent saison, I suppose, but nothing special.

750ml bottle poured into a 2013 Raleigh Beer Tasting snifter

A~ dark burnt orange with lots of head and nice lacing

S~ lots of yeast, herbs, and Belgium. (yes it tastes like the country lol)

T~ here's where it really opens up, light tartness, lots of pepper, citrus, apples, pears, you name some flavor in a saison its probably got it! funk and yeast on the finish.

M~ lots of carbonation, little bit creamy and goes down smooth leaving you with the tartness all the way through.

O~ very good, what i would call a Belgium saison, definitely would drink again but would prefer a stand alone HF saison. still working my way through their saisons/wilds and hope to try them all (hahah yeah ok...)

EDIT: second batch is way better than the first. a lot more lemony tartness and the amber and saison aspects are very well balanced!
