A very nice clean dark copper pour with 2 fingers of frothy off-white head which dissipated slowly and left behind lots of nice sticky lacing.
Aroma of farmhouse peppery saison yeast is dominant, grassy hops, wheat bread.
The flavor profile is very tame, which isn't a bad thing. There's a nice grain bill present.. Lots of barley but also getting a hint of rye, maybe some wheat. The hops give off a nice citrusy flavor (grapefruit) albeit very subtle. The yeast again is dominant and very nice - peppery with a subtle Bretty tone.
Medium body beer with moderate carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and sticky on the lips.

I saw this sitting for the past few years on shelves and never bothered picking it up. It's been hit or miss with new holland beers, but it seems like the price was just right for my thirst. Picked up this year's bottle and I am very glad I did so. This is a wonderful, yet subtle, display of a Belgian IPA.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/14/2013. Pours lightly hazy orange amber color with a nice 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of orange zest, lemon zest, orange rind, grapefruit, pear, apple, clove, banana, pepper, caramel, floral, grass, light pine, light bubblegum, and floral/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop, malt, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of orange zest, grapefruit, orange rind, lemon zest, pear, apple, clove, banana, pepper, caramel, floral, grass, light bubblegum, light pine, and floral/yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, clove, banana, pepper, caramel, floral, grass, light pine, bubblegum, and earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of hop, yeast ester, and malt flavors; with a great sweetness/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian IPA. All around great balance and complexity of hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
