750 mL bottle shared at the January 2012 Sante Cruz tasting at Sante Adairius. Pours an orangey gold with a thick white head. Lemony, grassy, peppery aroma. Very German malt profile, reminds me of a helles lager. Flowery notes and light stone fruitiness round it out. Solid beer.

Served on tap at Funkwerks in a snifter/tulip hybrid:

A - presents a light orange golden with half finger of decently creamy head.

S - banana, clove, sweet caramel, cotton candy and stroung yeast. Pleasant.

T - strong banana and clove. Finishes a bit hoppier than expected, with floral and citrus notes.

M - medium bodied crisp and dry. Nearly ideal.

D - overall, a very good saison. Drinkable and high quality.

Lots of active fermentation on this one. 3 fingers of stable head, a crystal gold color.

Fruity aromas, pepper, clove, banana, apricot, and metallic cantaloupe.

Flavor is much of the same, as if I took a slice of pineapple and put some pepper on it; some metallic harshness, bright fruity notes. More coriander, some clove.

Feel is pretty carbonated, a starchy dryness.

Overall it's pretty decent. Still not as great as Sofie or Colette though.
