750ml corked and caged into chimay chalice
Pours a hazy gold with deep creamy meringue-like head which lasts the life of the beer and leaves generous sticky lace.
Nose is pears, banana, lemon, a lovely sweet / sour yeasty belgian funk and a bit of peppery spice.
Flavors include banana, pear, lemon and a hoppy and spicy bitterness toward the end finishing with that belgian yeast sourness. Dry finish.
Biting carbonation with a light thin mouthfeel and an astringent finish.
Drinkability is excellent and the alcohol presence is very well hidden. Wish I had another bottle.
This pairs brilliantly with comte cheese incidentally.
I must get more of this beer.

4.04/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours with three fingers of bubbly white head. Active carbonation is huge. Color is a light straw yellow. Sticky lacing left behind as head very slowly dissipated.
Smell: Pears, spices, bananas, and semi-sweet bready malts greet the drinker. There is some very dry pepper, and ashy notes on the body. Earth and dirt mesh with some light hop notes on the back end. Wow a lot going on here.
Taste: Touches of pepper and airy spices hit on the front first. Bread, sweet dough, and some salty hops show up on the body. More sweet malts ride through on the finish and some lingering spices go well together.
Mouthfeel: Bright carbonation with pleasant transitions of spice and sweet malts.
Overall: A great American saison. The pepper and dryness is heavier then I expected but this overall is a slow sipper that is easy to enjoy.
