On tap at the Toronado. Poured into a 13 ounce tulip.

A-Pours a slightly hazy yellow. The bartender filled the glass to the rim which results in a minimal almost white head. A few visible bubbles can be seen rising.

S-Sweet fruit stands out. Lots of green apple. It also has a lot of bread aroma. Not much funk is coming out.

T-Tastes very sweet. The fruit, particularly apples, pineapple, and pears, are strong. The bready flavor is very strong in the aftertaste. Not very funky tasting. In the back there is a little spiciness.

M-Medium bodied and sticky. It has some prickly carbonation.

D-A decent beer, but too much sweet fruit for more than one. Would like it to be a tad more dry and funky.

This was my first time having this on tap. I had a bottle a few years ago that I remember being funkier. Time to revisit a bottle of this.

GLASS: Leffe over-sized wine glass
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 45 degrees

Excellent, crystal clear, overly golden or extra-light amber is how I'd describe this one. Medium-sized head that leaves a nice, thin, foamy layer. Chunky, sliding lacing. Very beautiful.

Fresh grass notes. Slightly sour funk. Light citrus notes. Very light maltiness. Nice presence of spiciness. White peach, banana, and clove.

Green apple peels, peaches in honey, and a nice spice level. Earthy graniness.

Nice, crisp, and clean mouthfeel. Not nearly as creamy as I like my saisons to be.

Very drinkable, especially as a day-to-day kind of brew. When I want something special though, I grab a bigger bolder saison.
