*Have had this beer several times now, both on tap, and from a 750 mL bottle.

Appearance: Straw-hay, unfiltered. More in the ‘gold-yellow’ direction than the orange-hued. Vigorous, foamy cream-coloured head.

Aromas: Classic Belgian yeast (white pepper, clove-phenol) with assertive hop presence and light malt. In this case, dry-hopping works well. Fresh bosc pear and citrus (grapefruit zest mixed with lime zest). In many ways the Sorachi hops are reminiscent of Cascade, but way more subtle.
Palate: Prickly carbonation, "saison-like" (that mild ‘farmhouse’ note), with a dry, roasted nuttiness. Complex fruity white raisin-pear-apricot finish.

A ‘classic’ saison that introduces a hybrid touch. North American-style dry-hopping with Japanese hops.
