Poured from the tap at the brewery on September 8th, 2012.

It had an orange/pink-ish, cloudy hue to it, with an off-white foamy head. The smell was very sweet, fruity, floral, and a slight spiciness. The taste was similar to the smell. It had a spiciness to it with floral, honey and citrus flavours meshing nicely. Very great balance with the pink peppercorns, honey, and rosehips.

Would I buy it again? Absolutely.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Bottled on: 4/1/14. Another take away from a trip to the brewery. I don't believe it was available on tap.

A: Cloudy amber body with orange tints at the periphery. 1 finger white head. Ok retention. Minimal lacing.

S: Fruity, floral Belgian yeast. Lemon juice. Peppercorn. Herbs. Rosemary. With effort I can pick out each listed ingredient, but taken together they create a harmonious, cohesive whole.

T: Lightly spicy initially with herbal and floral notes. A mild bitterness and tartness simultaneously develop to a semi-dry finish. A pleasant herbal astringency lingers on the palate. The tartness beckons another sip. Alcohol is light for 8%.

M: Moderate carbonation and moderate body that well suits the flavors.

O: Really nice saison with a bit extra tartness than average. Very impressed with much of Night Shift's stuff. Too bad I only grabbed the one.

Prost!

4 ounce pour directly at the brewery.

Flavor is mild pepper, honey, herbs; Aroma and flavor boast a strong rosemary presence. Body feels light even though it clocks in at 8%. Is there such a thing as extreme floridness? Regardless, very tasty indeed.
