Fruity, medium to thick body, earthy to funky, banana, pears and apricot flavor. One of my favorite Saison, hint of pepper, but amazing Saison. Top 5 for your palette in this catagory for sure.

Cloudy yellow appearance, minimal head. Aromas of yeast and maybe orange peel. Lots of carbonation, with a mouthfeel like that of Champagne. Slightly tart, but not too much so, not like some of the true sours I’ve tried, with notes of yeast and citrus, and a finish like sourdough bread. Light body, very drinkable.

Served in a balloon glass at 50 degrees

Pours a cloudy straw color with a thick white head with moderate carbonation. Smells of tropical fruits with some Belgian yeast. Tastes of Belgain malts, fruits, and farmhouse funk, with some dry undertones at the end. An overall complex brew and rare saison avaiable in a 6- pack. A perfect summer beer for those looking a for a take on a classic Belgian style.
