Served in a Bruery snifter.

Hey, I've been to that intersection! *massive cartoon-y thumbs-up!* This stuff pours a hazy golden topped by a bit over a finger of white foam. The nose comprises lemon zest, cracked wheat, light coriander, sweet flowers, and a light blanket of mild Belgian yeast. The taste ramps up the yeast-borne spice and mild funk, whilst still maintaining the components of the aroma. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, a nice hoppy saison, one whose hoppiness and yeastiness aren't in competition, but rather in cooperation. Right on.

Poured into a Pipeworks snifter from bomber - batch 46

A - One of the creamiest this lustrous heads I've ever poured, lots of residual lacing. Hazy pale yellow in color.

S - yeast and bananas with some fruit, dark fruits as the beer warms.

T - Citrus, spices, banana, yeast, and hop bitterness

M - medium bodied, lightly carbonated

O - a really fine offering, plenty of complexity in flavor, not a style I purchase typically, but this was enjoyable enough that I would recommend it to anyone whether they enjoy saisons or not.
