Wonderful! Go glad I had a chance to drink this beer!

A - Golden, clear pour, no haze. Slight head that hung out, but nothing more than a quarter inch at most.

S - sour, spicy, zesty

T - Wow. You can tell that Jean tried to keep the character of the respective brewers when blending this. perhaps not the most balanced, but an absolute treat none the less. Typical lambic notes that can be found in Grand Cru, but with more spice and more (slightly bitter) zest.

M - clean.

O - Again, the concept is probably more important than the blend itself. I was extremely pleased with this beer and am very appreciative that it was not for sale. It would of removed some magic from the event to see hoarders line up with their friends and family to collect as many bottles as they could. Everyone at Quintessence was able to sample this wonderful beer, and there was no frenzy to get into the line for this beer.

Draught, Poured in a tulip, hazey golden, with an 1/4" creamy white head.

Nice Belgian funk, light but distinct. Some orchard fruit.

Well balanced saison inspired spice profile, light tartness, some fruit, some sweet, some bitterness. Modest short finish calls one back for more.

Medium to full body, light but potent alcohol, ample carbonation, drying finish.

This was a surprise offering at a local restaurant that has been steadily been improving their beer resume. I enjoyed it with a chicken and Swiss spin on a Philly Cheese Steak. Yea, sure, that sounds like a misnomer or an oxymoron, but who cars, it was good, and a welcome break from Christmas preparations.
