750 ML bottle purchased from Binny's in Champaign IL. Poured into a Prairie Artisan Teku Glass.

A: Pours a beautiful, vibrant and hazed orange color. A billowing white head forms with excellent retention and rings of lace left all the way down the glass.
S: I get big black peppery aromas on first whiff. Which makes me pull back a little, as this breaths and warms it becomes much more nuanced. Musty basement cellar, lemon and citrus rind. Lightly estery fruits like bananas and peach. Maybe a touch of pale malts. Fantastic.
T: Follows the nose with a big black peppery spice. Earthy, basement cellar like musty flavors. Fruity esters, once again the yeast and Brett character here is out out of this world. Lemon, citrus, light grapefruit. Actually grassy and grapefruit hops build towards mid palate. Banana like esters are stronger in the finish. Again, maybe a touch of pale malts, but the yeast is the entire show for the most part. Love it.
M/O: A light body that is really spritzer like. Perfectly effervescent, with that firm crispness that is also ultra smooth. Beautifully dry as well. I get just a touch of heat on the back of the throat. The alcohol is a little stronger than I would like for the style, but so incredibly enjoyable to drink that is more than forgiven.

Every time I have this, it is a treat. I am glad I was able to find a bottle for myself to enjoy, instead of smaller pours at shares. Like I said before, they make the best Saisons in America.

Very different, unique beer. Pours with a beautiful large white head and hazy. It was a gusher. Very fruity and sweet upfront before it takes a dramatic turn to finish very dry and crisp. Taste is funk, melon, and pear. Very enjoyable.

Look: Gorgeous beer, first glass poured almost completely clear, with a nice thick head. beer is a light golden color and some lacing on the glass.
Smell: Tart and slightly funky, smells like a sour beer (not sure how else to describe)
Taste: A little peppery, sour, and tart. Slight medicinal taste that I usually get in sours. It also finishes with a slight herbal/grassy finish. Not sure if it is from the yeast or hops.
Feel: Perfect feel, a little thick, with a good level of carbonation
Overall: A really enjoyable beer. Glad they are distributed to MA now. I live in CT and I am looking forward to trying some of there other beers. This beer is good, but I am not sure I will buy many more at the $13ish price range.
