Hazy golden color with a big, fluffy, white head. Good head retention. Floral smell. Some yeast and spices as well. A bit subdued on the nose though. Thick Belgian mouthfeel. A bit dry, with some bold flavors. Clove, lemon zest, and a bit of a floral hop taste. Nice.

One of the best saisons I've had, though I have admittedly tried very few.

Got a 4 pack at Specs in Round Rock for around 10 bucks.

Poured a cloudy, honey-straw colored gold in my New Belgium goblet...a huge billowy head, great lacing throughout...a very attractive looking beer.

Belgian esters, pepper, lemon...nice crisp scent.
The same Belgian yeast flavors with a tart lemon finish...a bit of bread, caramel, and hops as well...wow...nice combo!

Medium body with generous carbonation...a ton of bubbles in this one...super easy to drink.

Gotta say, this is a pretty damn good beer. A nice change of pace from my typical staple of IPAs and Imp Stouts.

Bottle poured into a chalice

Pours a huge, billowy, frothy , white three finger foam cap. Giant bubbles , very good lacings. Golden yellow, hazy with carbonation

Aroma of grass, pepper, spices , cloves

Grass and spice firmly , squarely placed in the center of the tongue, citrus notes, tart apples.

Crisp, dry mouthfeel, gentle carbonation. Tart aftertaste

Great beer from a great brewery
