Sampling a cellar temp 22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. The beer pours a clear copper color with a large fluffy and frothy bleached white head of 3.5 cm.
The head fades to a thin edge layer fairly rapidly after the pour.
Aroma is bready yeast with some white grapes and pears mixed in with just a little spicy hop character.
FIrst sip reveals a lighter than anticipated body with very fine and tingly carbonation.
Texture is smooth and silky very easy to drink, enjoyable.
The beer gets a little cloudy towards the end of the bottle poured into my glass.
Flavor is grainy malt and some bready yeast, I also get some sweet fruit. Pears and some white grape again, as in the nose. The beer is amazingly drinkable and enjoyable.
I dont get any hint of the booze and the finish is dry and a little sweet.

Quite a nice beer that is perfect for a warmer day, I would pick up bottles of this again.

On-tap 5/20/2013 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a light yellowish gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains esters, Belgian yeast, wheat, light caramelized malts and some citrus.

T: The taste starts with a touch of sourness and spice that is quickly followed by breadiness from wild Belgian yeast and a thin malt character. Then there’s some mild background sweetness from flavors of citrus and banana. The hops presence is very mild but creates a very good balance. The after-taste is bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a very solid lighter Saison to drink for a long time.
