Poured into a Gavroche tulip. Pours a medium golden amber with active carbonation and a big three finger white head with good retention and pillowy lacing. Aroma of earthy camomile, apple juice, summer herbs, saison yeast, peppery and earthy. Flavor starts with bitter camomile and coriander then quickly develops a soft semi-sweet light stone fruit and pear juice element before finishing semi-dry with residual herbal bitterness, somewhat medicinal from the camomile. Light to medium bodied but nice peppery carbonation. A really nice flavor progression from the expected saison semi-dryness of the start with light fruit flavors developing reminiscent of a light dubbel. There are a lot of pleasant herbal flavors in the middle and finish. The camomile is distinctive but adds an interesting bitterness to complement the more typical Belgian spices. I really liked this saison and look forward to other varieties from Perennial.
