I love saisons. They are in my top three styles. I love the variety in in abv and complexity that is found here and it is always with pleasure that I consume well done versions. This one brings immense satisfaction to the tongue, heart, and soul. A strong pour generates a healthy head of creamy colored, lightly yellowed, off-white foam. A slow fade leaves a wispy covering and light lacing. A surprisingly clear, darkened gold colored fluid. Nose offers a banquet of olfactory sensations. Lemon, pepper, grassy hops, all sit atop a lovely malt breadiness that showcases a superb yeast. Notes of bubble gum along with a very hefe like clove and mild banana really make this one work for me. It's soft candy sugar cookie dough scent reinforces the Belgian heritage of this one. Taste is a smooth highly drinkable encounter with the excellent vision of the brewers involved. The front is soft and bakery cookie sweet. Middle offers up a bouquet of bright citrus orange and lemon. Peppery spiciness kick in to start the transition.Finish flows into a mild hop drying more than bitterness. Bits of mint and light hop oil make this a crowd pleaser for the IPA crowd while being a low hop beer. Grassy and clean it leaves a lovely crispness that makes this a wonderful food beer that will work with anything but chocolate. Feel is smooth, mildly crisp, with a velvety drinkability that is beyond numbers. Quenching in a way that makes this a dangerous beer when you're thirsty as it is very easy to go through many glasses quickly. This beer seems to combine two of my three faves when it comes to style. Hefe and Saison. The yeast qualities along with the low bitterness that still allows the spicing and hops to shine make this a real treasure trove for enjoyment. Go Get Some Of This!

Without much of a clue about "lemon myrtle" or "pepperberry", the employment of these exotic Australian spices along with a down-under brewing edge, a Belgianesque saison emerges. Where the spices are evident, its firm, bready and almost hefeweizen taste and texture are the first thing that strikes the senses as having any uniqueness in identity.

Its hazy goldenrod pour is creamy and somewhat lavish, layering upon the nose with cookie dough and baking bread. Confectioner's sweetness is candied and soft, pressing delicately on the early palate, just ahead of a strong perfumy spice.

The middle simply blossoms as bright orange, banana and lemon offer a creamy but tangy character simultaneously. As its sweet and bready texture wavers, the perfume turns peppery, delivering glimpses of clove, white pepper and lemongrass on the back of the tongue.

As its playful acidity grows, its malty texture and sugars release, giving the finish a bright and winy taste and feel. But still, its hop character is delightfully grassy and mildly bitter and is careful not to interfere with the subtle vanilla and mint flavors to develop in a rolling aftertaste.

Regardless of the Ausie influence in this farmhouse-type ale, it seems that greater influence was borrowed from those classic Bavarian wheat beers and their heavily yeast-reliant fruit and spice medley.

Serving type: on-tap
