3.68/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

this ale pours well with a bunch of carbonation so easy on the pour guys and girls. Best served in a tulip glass to allow the bouquet of hop aroma stand out.

A- Hazy almost like a hefewiezen with a very low clarity, Straw gold in color so an srm reading of under 5. A creamy long last bright whitehead that last a good while. the foam is so puffy you cant help it but grab a spoon and eat the dam thing lol. great lacing left along the sides after every sip.

S- WIth the help of Yeoman and Target hops this saison has great bouquet of citrusy lemon zesty, and a delightful grassy and earthy spices like coriander and curacao peel(spicer than orange peel and more astringic ,puckery). THe yeast also produces the overall esters and sour notes( Belgium strain).

T- Thanks to the Belgium yeast you get great sour note that is well balance by the hop bittering finish. esters and earthy herbal, grainlike zesty lemon with a sour and spicey taste. very refreshing saison. Acceptbale sour note well balanced by hop bitterness and spice.

M- Well carbonated yeast is similar to a champagne yeast but less bubbles and more puffy like whip cream over sweet potato pie. Medium bodyed flavor and texture with a crispy dry hoppy finish that is acceptable for even your everyday pilsner enthusiast.

O- Slight mouth drying sour well balanced by the high alpha acids of the all putpose and bittering use of hops (yeoman bittering, Targets all purpose) the ibus are low but presentable.

pww- I would pair this guy with the same foods you would pair an expensive sauvingnon blanc. great with light bodied seafood dishes and salads and suhi and a classis german sausage like a wiesswurt

thanks guys for reading and now go get one and cheers my friends and if you like this style I would recommend a less sour ale like a hefewiesen which leans towards banana and clove aromas and flavors.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

750 ml bottle, 2014, poured into a teku

A- A hazy golden color with a four finger white head.

S- Floral hops, some citrus, lemon, light fruits, slightly funky yeast, some bready malts, touch of peppercorns.

T- Citrus and floral hops combined with hints of lemons and a nice sweet bready malt backbone, finish is better, earthy, hints of pepper, slightly funky. Very nice balance between the Saison flavors and the hops.

S- Smooth crisp, dry medium body.

O- A great beer, very happy I was able to find this. As a fan of both Saisons and hoppy beers, I love what it is going on with this beer. This is a most try for anyone likes Saisons and IPAs.

4.19/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: The beer features a slightly cloudy, pale gold body topped with a fluffy white head. The head sticks around for a respectable amount of time, and as it drops it leaves sheets of uniform white lacing.

Smell: A hefty dose of lemony citrus gives me a bit of a surprise, but I realized that I wasn’t paying attention to the label and the fact that this year’s dry hopping addition is challenger hops. The nose is filled out with white pepper and what I would call a traditional saison yeast scent.

Taste: It is certainly more hop forward than the traditional Saison Dupont, and I am now regretting not having purchased one of those so I could engage in a head-to-head comparison. The citrus continues to make things interesting, the white pepper sticks around and is joined by coriander, and a slight funk shows up. It’s not full-on funk, more like a hint of grass and earth. It finishes fairly bitter but clean.

Mouthfeel: This one is relatively highly carbonated and, despite the big hop profile, feels quite light in the mouth.

Drinkability: Quite high, and perfect for a summer day.

2014 Cuvee. 750ml bottle purchased at Shadyside Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh, PA on 7/7/14. Poured into tulip.

A - Hazy golden hue with wonderful rocky head on pour. Head dissipates slowly, lacing is superb.

S - Very mild yeast characteristics of banana and cream balanced with a light citrus/lemon note.

T - Light but full malts and a nice balance of saison funkiness complimented by vegetal hops and finishes very dry from both the high attenuation and challenger hops. The hops become more evident as the glass warms, interesting twist on a great saison.

M - Zippy carbonation lightening a full body, refreshing and satisfying as a saison should be.

O - Nice variant of a good beer. I may borrow this idea for my own house saison next year.
