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.
