Note: 2014 Vintage with Challenger Hops

A: Pours a cloudy medium straw yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass + surface of the beer along with some golden yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy off-white head that very slowly reduce to a full finger thick pillowy layer covering the entire surface of the beer with a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of grassy/hay-like funkiness with lighter aromas of pale malts, citrus/lemon rind, and spices (white pepper and coriander) with the distinct aroma of saison yeast. Lighter notes of floral and spicy hops.

T: Upfront the beer is earthy with a light to moderate flavor of slightly chalky pale malts. That is followed by light flavors of citrus/lemon rind and hay-like barnyard funkiness. There is a moderate flavor of spices (white pepper and coriander) from the yeast and the hops. Light flavors of floral hops add a light amount of lingering bitterness to the finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp and slightly prickly. Hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Very enjoyable and paired wonderfully with my grilled lamb, roasted potatoes, and greens dinner tonight. Earthy with citrus and spices is just up my alley. Looking forward to trying next year's version with a different hop.

This is a fabulous Belgian saison. A hazy golden yellow with a persistent white head and champagne-like bubbles, nice lacing. A sweet tangy aroma with citrus, sweet malt and some spice.. with just a hint of dry hopping. Taste is incredibly well balanced. It has ample body, but is still light and refreshing...my taste buds just cried out for more. I love this beer. It's now my standard by which all non-soured saisons will be compared.

Poured from the 750 ml bottle into tall tulips.
Pours blonde and hazy with generous frothy head, lots of bubbles rise from bottom of the glass.
Aromas are perfect, tangy, yeasty and utterly saison.
taste is lighter than aroma, very quenching.
Mouthfeel is clean and dry, very nice.
Overall, this is an aromatic and quenching saison. Delicious!
