Caged, corked and in bomber bottle - an easy off cork compared to many of those I've had recently. One easy twist and the beer was mine!

Huge creamy head that takes up better than a third of the glass, pillowing up in the middle and receding at the edges, white with hues of tan and orange. Slightly hazed golden.

Like wild flowers and fresh air, with a the hops being pretty reserved. Grassy and some lemony citrus too. Some skunk as well, but I cannot speak to the freshness of the beer.

Relatively dry, characteristically saison, with all of the farmy, citrus and hoppiness you might expect. What separates this from others is the balance achieved with each of those - not one of them overpowers the other. In the same respect, it is somewhat boring. Subtle skunk comes through here as well, but I'm not sure I can distinguish it from the farm.

There's a pop of carbonation on the tongue, delivering a mild burn - a bit too much for my taste.

No doubt a good beer, but after the marked hype around it being world class, I'm not sure I can agree.

2012 vintage...

A: Pours a light cloudy lemon straw with one and a half fingers of pure white head. The foam takes a bit to settle, and there is some decent lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is funk, light citrus, slightly salty, and little peppery. I get some barnyard funk, stinky feet, and quality cheese out of it as well.

T: It starts out sweet with some citrus tartness. The get a big kick of barnyard funk in the middle where it gets a thin veil of pepper bite. The finish is bitter and a bit stinging.

M: Light bodied beer. Sweet and watery to start, but the yeast drives to the end, where it's bitter and ultimately, a bit dry.

O: This is a decent beer, but I have had many other Saisons that I enjoy much more. I don't think I'll be returning to this beer in the future.
