A - pours a hazy pale straw color. A thick over four fingers worth of mouse like snow white foam on top. Excellent retention a is slowly fades leaving webs of lacing against the glass.
S - the nose is crisp and bright. Lots of intense citrus notes mostly bitter orange peel, sweet orange pulp and lemon zest. Sweet yeasty bready notes and hints of ripe banana peel. Notes of hay and dewy grass underneath.
T - plesant mix of dough and toast up front. Bright fruit esters enter quickly. Lots of banana peel and pulpy orange. Most citrus character lies mid palate with more instense bitter orange peel and acidic lemon pith. Tartness is a strong undercurrent to this ale which intesifies and lingers long after the finish.
M - medium bodied with a slightly watery texture. Very high carbonation but still within the realm for the style.
O - one of my favorite holdiay beers and one of the best saison style ales. One everyone should try.

A large, off-white head crowns this bright orange brew.
An array of light fruits and must flow out of the glass. Deeper inspection reveals more fruits, including orange, lemon, pear, and white grapes. Complex is as complex does. Rotten rind, peat, and faint spice complete the perfect circle.
Fruity (more orange, lemon and pear), spicy, full-bodied, creamier than expected, and lacking nothing I can think of. Has a bit of grain and yeast to finish. Vanilla is noticed as it warms. Alcohol hits and dissapears quickly.
Fabulous example of a "big" Saison.
