Notes/Commercial Description:
Medium strength, dry, golden ale brewed with our farmhouse yeast, and, as its name suggests, an abundance of noble, European hops. Thoroughly hoppy, yet elegant, dry, balanced, and drinkable.

Pours an opaque lemon-orange with a frosty 1/2 inch head from a 750 ml. Musty citrus smell, hoppy, Dry taste, bitters, lemon peel, oily citrus tastes. Very nice carbonation, thin, subtle bubbles. For an IPA, it warms well, with the dry hops, pine, semi-sweet citrus flavors more pronounced.

Pours out a slightly hazy brass with a thin, frothy head that dissipates quickly. Smells of cerealy grains, a bit of toast, and some noble hops. Some tropical fruit and stone fruits from the yeast comes out in the nose as well. Flavor has more fruity yeast character up front than in the smell. Works well with the earthy, floral hops. Sweet up front with a bit of dryness in the finish. Solid bitter rounds it out. Mouthfeel is lightbodied. It's lacking a bit of carbonation, though. Overall, this is a really tasty beer. My only gripe is the carbonation, which must be off. Will have to try again on tap and compare. As good as it is, I'd take a Petit Prince over this almost any day.

a - poured a big, fluffy, white three-fingers head into a tulip glass that left great lacing and a thick sheet throughout that billowed nicely. the body was a bright orange color.
s - floral hops, lemon, grassy hops, and wheat.
t - lemon, grass, and herbal flavors with a spicy kick.
m - bubbly and medium. really dances.
o - really nice take on a saison. well done and i love the hops with this.
