On tap at the Perennial Tap Room in St. Louis, MO. Poured into a snifter glass today, 4/5/2014.

App- slightly hazy golden straw body, half a finger effervescent white head with minimal retention. Some lacing, not a ton. Looks like a beer, nothing surprising.

Smell- earthy saison funk and pale malt breadiness. Not particularly complex but a good simple combination. No chamomile tea or floral notes to be found. A bummer.

Flavour- still no chamomile character to be found; perhaps it's contributing to the earthy notes. Some non-descript yeast spices, bready pale malt, small touch of funk. Solid profile but nothing superbly interesting.

Mouthfeel- medium bodied, almost creamy but not overly so that it would be out of style. Solid drinking beer, not offensive on this aspect. Saison funk, earth on the backend.

Overall- a fine saison, nothing too memorable but I wouldn't turn it down if offered to me. Worth a try at least once. But it's rather expensive for a bottle if I recall correctly.

Serving type: on-tap

Enjoyed at Bailey's Range in St. Louis.

This beer arrived a crystal clear polished bright gold in color with a one finger head. It was the second beer I ordered but maintained the white head for over fifteen minutes. The nose featured light Belgian yeast and pale malt. It wasn't overly telling and unfortunately not very aromatic. The flavors however offered pale Belgian malt sweetness, real honey, and honey crisp apples. After the nose I didn't expect that. It is very well balanced. The apple in the after taste is pretty nice. It drinks light in body and doesn't show any of its alcohol. For a beer of the style it is very sessionable. Overall I was quite impressed. This beer was pretty nice on draft. I'd order another.

Serving type: on-tap
