This beer pours a clear copper color and a thin wit foamy head. Initial scents are of some fresh fruit; I got some pear, green grape, and melon notes.

The yeast gives a tangy tartness which really complimented this beer.

Really an easy drinking saison that is true to style. Smooth body and light feel makes it a breeze to drink.

Selkirk nails Belgian styles and this is no different.

22oz into a tulip. Pours a hazy pale copper w/ a loose white head, good carbonation.

Aroma is fruity and grassy, delicate; pear and apple, spice, Belgian yeast, floral hops.

Taste is likewise fruity and floral, subtle. Just a touch of grassy funk that increases as it warms. Bready. Not sure if wheat malt was used, but it has some of the characteristics of a wheat beer.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, balanced, drinkable. Refreshing.

Overall a really nice saison with a nice juicy, citrusy, floral twist.

I had this beer on-tap in a Selkirk Abbey pint glass at the brewery.

Appearance: light golden hue with a strong effervescence and a thin layer of white foam. Not bad!

Smell: lightly funky with a nice sweetness which has a good fruity element which almost reminds me of plums. There's a little spiciness too, which rounds out a nice subtle complexity.

Taste: very sweet with a lot of that plummy fruitiness. There's a light funk too; it lacks balance, though. Just a bit sweet for my taste.

Mouthfeel: rich body with a huge carbonation and very good creaminess. I like it!

Overall: good; but a bit sweet for me.
