Note: 12 oz. bottle. Pours with a rich pillow of snow-white head with a bead as tight as shaving cream. A swirl of the goblet sends the foam into a little galactic spiral. Lazy cling, o.k. lacing. Beer is peach chrome in color with honey-colored highlights and enough yeast haze to make the carbonation just barely visible. Smells involve peach pie filling, cinnamon sugar cookies, beeswax and clover. A twist of saffron and the perfume of shredded violets round out a cool, floral, humid nosefeel. Fresh ginger flavors dominate over the sweetness of ladyfingers in the front palate. Must, straw, and alcohol are incorporated into perfectly level transitions between fruit and spice before ending with a well-hopped, bitter finish of fruit pits that sticks the tongue to the roof of the mouth. Burps of red delicious apple appear by the time I'm reaching for my second bottle. Mouthfeel is lightly viscous with a calciferous, magazine-paper slickness and a sharp, tingling POW! of carbonation high on the tongue. At room temperature, drinkability soars... knocking off a 750 should be a piece of cake. This is like drinking a summer picnic out of a glass.

Pours a hazy yellow with a big foamy head that lasts for a bit. Moderate lacing. Big aroma of grapefruit and citrus, with notes of yeast. The taste follows the aroma, along with a fair amount of sweetness and spice. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. This is such a good saison. It leaves me thinking of warmer weather and hoping for another glass soon.
