Bright saison with dry cracker malts, honey and citrus sweetness, and earthy herbal bitterness. Has hints of spices and pepper on the nose. Feel is smooth yet crisp. Rides up the palate during the taste

Not sure how old this bottle is - it's been sitting in my fridge for awhile after being gifted to me by a friend who received it from the Shelton Brothers themselves. Last review here is well over a year ago, so I'm guessing this is not a youngster.

A: Poured from the bottle into a Palm tulip. Body is straw-yellow/light golden with a half-finger of bright white head.

S: Modest yeastiness, some florally scents and ripe fruits - think white grapes, primarily.

T: Surprisingly clean - white grape skins, modest grainy foundation and a touch of lemony bitterness at the finish. Well-balanced.

M: Light in heft, solid active carbonation - feels like a Saison should, notwithstanding all the time in the bottle.

O: Quite good. Pleasantly surprised.

Golden blonde with lots of effervescent bubbles floating up to the 1/2 finger of head.

Clean aroma with pepper, honey, and belgian candi sugar.

Flavor is clean as well with lots of nice peppery notes, coriander, honey, pale malts, and a finish of pepper and lemon.

Feel is very carbonated, with a nice dry saison finish.

Dead on accurate Saison with class and a little sweetness. Highly recommended.

Pours a clear, sunny-amber color, with a huge froth head on top.

Smells of wheat entangled orange peel, spiced up by black peppers and coriander. Offers a soothing wet grass quality among toffee malts and a whiff of rock sugar.

Has a higher, lively carbonation, although the beer's overall soft and creamy mouthfeel prevails, while adding a nice refreshment to it.

Tastes of bitter cardamom and equally bitter lemon peel accompanied by white orange zest, hay and a rock sugar peak. Unusually refreshing with blood oranges and a note of black peppers together with a soft aqueous quality. Finishes with a world class creaminess, while a perfectly dosed, bubbly carbonation cuts through along with sweeter spices, and a still recognizable bitter counterpart from the beginning.

Fantastic beer overall, offers a unique twist while sticking to the style, perfected by its balance and supersmooth mouthfeel.
