4/5  rDev -3.8%

First pour in a challis. Mammoth head with tons of yeast, pepper and citrus on the nose which I can smell a foot away. Typically cloudy but lighter in color than some other beers in this style.

Very complex. Flavors are all over the place. Savory heat (cilantro or watercress maybe) on the tongue and a bubbly tingle in the mouth. A grainy malt texture blends well with the yeastiness which lingers but doesn't overpower the palate. A superior taste with an even better sensation in the pie hole.

Results from the second pour are almost the same. A little more heat as the beer has warmed up some.

Final pour. I allowed some of the yeast to flow into the glass. I can still taste it after ten minutes. Not the way to go for me. I have tried this before with a 11.2 ounce Belgian blonde and it worked well. So it's the type of beer, temperature or some combination of the two.

Overall I love this beer. It is my favorite saison and one of the best beers I have tried.

Note* I'm not a fan of a big grapefruit presence (probably because I don't like grapefruit) so take this into consideration if you use opinions as a guide.

On tap at the House of Brews. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy light golden body. Huge white head. Nice lacing. Thick collar and some surface wisps.

Smell - Estery fruitiness. Some light banana and clove. Grainy. A bit of apple.

Taste - Grainy and yeasty up front. Apple fruitiness builds. Some banana builds too. Slightly bitter yeasty finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - Solid saison. Not necessarily remarkable in any category, but very good overall.

10/02/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum. I've avoided this brew as it's branded a saison which is such a wide open style. This is a fine concoction. Experience shows through. Great balance. Careful w/the ABV as this could catch you up.

4.05/5  rDev -2.6%

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. A cloudy golden yellow with a white head that starts large but quickly settles down to a comfortable half-finger. Very malty, fruity, spicy aroma: Fresh apples, hay, light grapefruit, breakfast cereal, pungent coriander seed, white wine, and just a touch of funk. Palate is correspondingly fruity yet quite dry. Robust rich malt backbone coupled with the fruit and spice notes mentioned above, subtle nutmeg and cardamom, citrus (lemon and grapefruit rind), shortbread, and a hint of rock candy sweetness. Body is thin to moderate, with carbonation on the low end. Quite a wonderful saison, not as tart and bitter as some, lacking that dry "burlap sack" note, and yet redolent with yeast phenols and esters plus added hop bite.
