look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, high carbonation, gold in color, hazy

Smell: dry white wine, light blueberry, light Belgian saison spices

Taste: blueberry--light wheat, hay, Belgian saison spices

Mouthfeel: sweet and funky, dry, light body, high carbonation

Overall: Amazing blueberry centric beer. The base saison is very tasty--little acidity and very light. The blueberries are present but never over done or cloying. This is an all day or fancy dessert beer. Getting more of this.

This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden orange to yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer. The smell had a bready sweet yeasty blueberry. The taste was basically the same as the smell with a light sticky sweet blueberry blended bready aftertaste. A light sweet sticky wet finish enters in at the end. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. I didn’t find this one too sessionable but it wasn’t necessarily a sipper either. Different, definitely. Overall, I say this was a pretty good saison which is what the bottle said on it. I’d have it again.

Heard about the GABF triumph, had to try this one out. Really happy to see breweries finding their own strains in the USA. Yet another way to push brewing variety further and further. Batch #1.

A- Poured into a large chalice from the 750ml bottle. Semi-hazy golden body with some orange in the middle. Creamy white head forms to a finger but falls to a frothy ring relatively quickly. The ring persists and leave some nice patches of lace.

S- Really ripe fruits jump out of the glass upon pouring, kind of a general berry feel. Upon further inspection caramel, fresh cracked grains, pepper and some classic Saison yeast comes to mind.

T- Quite fruity here too with that nice berry flavor coming through but the spiciness of the yeast catches up and brings upon a nice balance. Like a nice jam without sweetness. Somewhere between the well known Saison and Belgian Strong Goldens people know today. Peppercorns, honey, raw cracked grains, white grape juice, apples, pears, bread, raisin and lemon zest comes to mind.

MF- High carbonation supports the flavor nicely and works nicely with the creamy, silky consistency of the beer. Body is light and nicely dry with some spiciness on the palate in the finish.

I'm sure my interest in new yeast strains plays a role but this beer just feels fresh. The berry jam-like flavors are nice and work well with the other products the yeast produces. Somewhere between a Saison and Belgian Golden for me, but solid even without the classification we strive to create.
