10/02/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum. I've avoided this brew as it's branded a saison which is such a wide open style. This is a fine concoction. Experience shows through. Great balance. Careful w/the ABV as this could catch you up.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. A cloudy golden yellow with a white head that starts large but quickly settles down to a comfortable half-finger. Very malty, fruity, spicy aroma: Fresh apples, hay, light grapefruit, breakfast cereal, pungent coriander seed, white wine, and just a touch of funk. Palate is correspondingly fruity yet quite dry. Robust rich malt backbone coupled with the fruit and spice notes mentioned above, subtle nutmeg and cardamom, citrus (lemon and grapefruit rind), shortbread, and a hint of rock candy sweetness. Body is thin to moderate, with carbonation on the low end. Quite a wonderful saison, not as tart and bitter as some, lacking that dry "burlap sack" note, and yet redolent with yeast phenols and esters plus added hop bite.
