Tulip glass.

A: Pours a light straw color, good clarity with a bit of haze, with a finger of sparse, soapy head. Some fine, champagne-like bubbles. Very good retention but minimal lacing.

S: Pale malt, subtle floral and lemongrass aromas, earthy yeast, a bit of vanilla and honey round out the aroma and add a touch (though not a substantial amount) of complexity.

T: Malty with a bit of lemon, spice, and a moderate twang, citrus, and a touch of must. Finishes off dry.

M: Effervescent and lively but a bit mouthcoating/creamy. Medium-light body and medium carbonation.

O: This ale is clearly the culmination of travel, and insight, of friendships and explorations, and of realizing a sense of one’s place. Would drink again; among saisons, this is good but not to the level of most Fantome stuff.
