Poured into a tulip. Bottled 2012 B: 09-23

A refreshing beer. Maybe not a session beer, but easily a great beer of which to have at least one on a hot day. I have now had all three versions of this beer, with the Victory and Stone versions coming in February and March of this year. This bottle was lost in my cellar, but is no worse for that time alone. Each brewery was supposed to use the same recipe but I want to say this DFH version is a little different and maybe the best version by a nose. Not sure if there are plans to brew this Saison again, but if I see it I will stock it.

A – Pours a pale orange color with a huge off-white dense (slightly rocky) head, which dissipates slowly to a constant layer. Some Belgian lacing.

S – Clean spiciness with some lemon. Can smell the rosemary and thyme faintly.

T – Crisp, clean, refreshing, faint sweetness, medium bitterness, slight tartness as well as some citrus (orange, lemon).

MF – Well carbonated, light to medium bodied, sharp to start, smoothing out in the finish. Hides ABV well.
