4.08/5 rDev +4.3%
Poured into a 3 Monts tulip. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a huge four finger white head that dissipates quickly to one finger of persistent foam with massive lacing. Aroma an unusual blend of tropical and stone fruit and spicy saison yeast, quite floral. Quite complex and inviting. Flavor starts with dry saison yeast, Brett, citrus and citrus rind, faint mixed fruit, very slightly sour; quickly dries out even more, finishing bone dry with lingering bitter Brett, almost astringent. The floral quality oddly reassert themselves in a long lingering aftertaste. Light bodied with very active, peppery carbonation. While I almost wish for more of the interesting fruit flavors of the aroma to assert themselves in the taste, I think the brewers created what they were intending, a relatively complex, dry saison with assertive Brett finish. This is not my style and somewhat more Brett than I like, but I still enjoyed this well made saison. The good balance won me over, with a light touch for sourness, and at first for the Brett.

Drank from my To Øl chalice.
A - Pours a slightly hazy straw colour with a large two fingered head that stay the distance.
S - Phenols of grass, yeast and plenty of citrus. Very pronounced
T - Really nice full flavoured with plenty of yeast and citrus. The finish has no sweetness and is a nice balnce of bitter and spice.
M - Medium body with light to medium carbonation.
O - Another quality brew from To Øl. This stacks up well, even against Fantome and Dupont.

330ml bottle. Goblet glass. Brass color & foggy appearance. White foam forms a close crown that leaves a lasting layer on top while dissipates. Brett aroma, hints of smoke, sour on the back, green bay leaves & spices to the nose. Sweet malty upfront cut by sour touch. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Funny palate. Oily texture. Sour/sweet finish & acidic notes on the aftertaste. Delightful. Great job !!

On-tap 9/20/2013 at Julian’s in Providence, RI, served in a tulip glass.
A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma is faint but contains Belgian yeast, hops, caramelized malts and some citrus.
T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of Belgian yeast and a hearty malt character. Then a strong but not over-powering hops bitterness comes in. There is some mild caramel and citrus sweetness providing some balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly hoppy.
M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Very tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, very good representation of style, this is a nice flavorful Saison to drink for a long time.

Remarkable is it how much complexity can be crammed into such a small beer. With a ton of yeast character and not holding back on hops- this lighter bodied Belgian Pale Ale resembles Saison with its effervescent spice and accelerated bitterness.
But to start, the ale billows with a light and fluffy foam column that rises to the rim with ease. Its bone-colored head retains remarkably well while lacing with intricate clumping patterns. Its body beneath is a blend of copper, peach and orange and glows with a yeasty diffused haze.
Void of any sweetness, the malty scent comprises raw barley grain and straw. Fruit impressions abound with oranges, grapefruit and apricot- but do so in a very unripe character. The fruit character bleeds into a highly spicy note of fresh-cracked peppercorn, cumin, cinnamon and an overall earthy leafy scent.
To taste, its once again shy in sweetness. Instead the pang of carbonation gives the palate an instant spiciness that invites the fruit-derives acidity similar to citrus peels and rinds. Again, the yeasty, peppery blend takes hold on the middle palate and further reinforces the taste a dry grain, wet hay and straw. Spicy with peppercorn and earthy cumin once again align with hop bitterness for a pithy and sharp bitterness in finish. The beer's aftertaste is short-lived and leaves a slight cork-like musty wood taste in memory.
Light in body, the evading sweetness and sprite of carbonation pulls the moisture from the mouth and provides a dry prickling sensation early and often. Its warm and spicy finish seems to vanish right off the tongue before having a chance to swallow. This makes the beer highly refreshing and drinkable. Even with a mild grain and hop astringency, the beer has so many positives that its minor flaws are easily overcome.
Where the beer sides with earthen spice and complementing hops- it begs for rich complements like crispy pork belly or foie gras.

Pours a cloudy golden/orange color with a massive straw colored head. Laces moderately and retains head in a huge way (in a glass with no etchings!)
Smells grassy, lemony, with some candy sweetness and a hint of fresh grain.
Light caramel malt with some lemon, pine, and grassy notes, which give way to a light candy sweetness. Lingers with a bready sweetness and hints of lemon.
Glides over the tongue effervescently, this beer is perfectly carbonated for the flavors it brings forward.
I initially approached this beer as a saison, and then I found To Øl's release describing it as a table/pale ale aggressively hopped and fermented with brett. Its not really a true saison, but it comes out as a fantastically complex summer pale-like ale. I love the way the taste lingers on the tongue with just enough of the sour to remind you its there. This turned out to be one of my favorite random liquor store selections and I will be seeking out more beers from To Øl.

Poured into a Chimay goblet from a 750mL.
Pours a hazy peach/gold with almost an inch of head, decent lace retention.
The smell is pretty amazing. Smells like walking through an orchard of mixed ripe fruit. The floral, fruit and earthy notes are out of this world!
Light and crisp, yet complex and flavorful. Grains, fruit and grassy/earthy hops mix well up front with the Belgian yeast. Dries out with a hint of tartness in the middle. Dry, crisp finish.
A little pricy, but very nice Saison or Belgian Pale. I'm tempted to cellar!
