750ml brown bottle with no freshness date though there is a suggestion of cellaring this beer for no more than 2 years.

Look: Perfectly clear pale golden color, amazing display of froth and lace

Smell: Asian pear, fresh baked pita bread, dragon fruit, slightly earthy, nutty yeast, herbal, peppery phenols, very aromatic

Taste: Dry malt backbone, smooth, slight juiciness, chalky yeast, grapenuts, spicy, crackers, hay, light pepperiness, very dry finish

So flavorful with out being over the top, truly a well honed Saison that seriously rivals many of the originals from Belgium & France.

750 ml bottle from Rare Beer” club. Pours hazy golden with long lasting, foamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of fruit, spices and yeast. Body is medium and crisp. Funky yeast, spices, apricots and floral hops fill the mouth. Finish is long and spicy. Delicious brew.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into cervoise.
A: Pours a clear greenish yellow with high carbonation producing a 3+ inch bubbly white head with excellent retention (head settles down to a 1 inch rocky white and stays that way for a while). (4.25)
S: Asian pear, soft minerals, light toast, white pepper, and soft citrus (orange especially, but also tangerine). With warming, a nutty vanilla note emerges. (4.25)
T: Crisp peppery citrus...fresh, light, and yet biting. Orange (more juice than peel), white pepper, and sweet lemon. With warming, vanilla, clove, and almond emerge. Very nice! (4.25)
M: Light, fresh, and crisp feel. Solidly sweet throughout (think orange juice). Pleasant effervescence. (4)
D: A solid saison...nice example of style. A nicely complex, refreshing, and sessionable brew (hard to find all of those in a single beer). Seek it out! (4.5)
