Growler poured into a tulip

A- A hazy golden copper color with a three finger white head.

S- Peppery, floral notes, bready malts, some pineapple, pear, hint of funk.

T- Beardy malts with nice tart pineapple and fruity flavors, peppery finish, touch of funk, well balanced, the pineapple is there and is not overwhelming.

M- Smooth, crisp, fairly dry, good carbonation.

O- Very happy that I have a 1/2 gallon to drink. This is a solid Saison with a nice twist of pineapple. Would liken to see this bottled.

32 oz. growler filled at Vista bev., south Salem, NY

Pours clear lite straw, off white head, leaves a delicate tiny bubble film, and nice looking fields of low sheeting and plenty of fine lace

Nose of tropical fruits, grapefruit and pinapple.

On the palate I get spicy citric and floral notes, with a slight sour bite greatly adding to the interest and complexity. Saison yeast strain also meshes nicely with the citrus and spice bite. Fresh tasting and flavorful. Highly enjoyable offering, happy to get to enjoy this one with some goat cheese and salad.

The beer pours out in a hazy golden yellow color with a light white head.

The aroma immediately hits you with some faint pineapple, a bit of that candy pineapple. Then there is lots of that saison character with lemon, wheat, grass, a bit of funk, biscuity malt.

The flavor follows again, with that pineapple there, but not in a strong way. It still sticks as a saison. It has that citrus, bready malt, a bit of funk, and then a tinge of pineapple in the back. One may not pick that flavor out without knowing it was there (had this beer during a blind tasting).

The beer is pretty tasty with an interesting extra flavor. It's a bit weak of the completeness of the flavor and a bit light on the back end of flavor.

Poured into a plastic 20 oz cup at a minor league baseball game. Pours a cloudy amber with a small white head. Smells of pineapple and wheat. Tastes of fruit, primarily pineapple with a wheat backbone. The beer is carbonated correctly, goes down smooth, light/medium bodied, extremely drinkable. Overall, a very good beer.
