Poured into cuvee from 750 ml
Bottled 4/2014..........Best by 4/2016

L-yellow straw colored. fairly clear, nice carbonated bubbles rising from the glass, big foamy white head that just sits at the top of the glass..........good retention..........no significant lacing as the foam slides down the glass

S-faint aromas of saison yeast, herbal spices, banana, pear, clove, lemon..........

T-none of the flavors shine bright for me on this one..........notes of lemon, some of the yeast, esters seem muted, getting some of the spiciness, faint pear........ a bit of a metallic taste that lingers and coats the mouth

F-light bodied, crisp from carbonation, dry finish

O-somewhat disappointed in this one today as I had this beer before and thought it was great but just not living up to my memory..........maybe the palate is off today.........does improve with each sip but something just isn't working for me on this one

Moderate to high carbonation. The head is white, thick, and holds up well. moderate lacing. Pours turbid. Golden in color. Sexiest beer I've encountered thus far. Citrus, light bodied, and flavorful.
