750 ml bottle, with Batch #438/439 printed on the label. A new saison style beer to me from Pipeworks. Expectations are high based on this knowledge.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a nice golden / burnt sienna orange colored body with three fingers of bubbly off-white head. Good head retention with some thick fluffy lacing. Adequate carbonation streaming up from the etching at the bottom of the glass. Looks very nice.

S - The smell of citrus hops hits me as soon as the beer was uncapped. Citrusy, floral, and lightly peppery. Smells very fresh and delicious.

T - The taste is comprised of bready pilsner malt, juicy citrus / floral hops - grapefruit, lemon, oranges, & spicy / earthy / peppery yeast presence.

M - The feel is smooth & creamy. Medium-light bodied with good active carbonation. Very easy drinking.

Overall, a very delicious, solid & inspired example of a traditional saison from the boys at Pipeworks. These guys have impressed me yet again.

Pipeworks North & Western ---4/5.

Pours hazy burnt golden in color with a big finger and a half white head that retains nicely.

Smell has traditional saison aromas forward with notes of black pepper and spice along with a big amount of hops with herbal notes along with pine and a lemon zest.

Taste follows nose with some Belgian spice flavors forward before some crisp lemony citrus hops come in with an herbal piney mild bitterness. Sweetness is moderate and lasts into the the exhale.

Mouthfeel is sticky from the malt and hop oils. Big carbonation helps cut the body.
