Hazy yellow, slight head stays until near the end.
Floral smell. Poured in oversized wine glass and everyone in room appreciated smell.
Taste herby and follows nose. Dry finish.
Simple kind of tasty. Enjoyed with French bread and Irish cheese.

Pretty standard saison here. Nothing stand out about it. It has nice farmhouse notes, and doesn't over do it in any particular way. Certainly no off flavors like phenols etc. Lacks tartness, body, and malt flavor

Slightly hazy bright yellow, white head. Aroma has sweet malt and floral perfume. Taste follows with yeast esters, sweet wheat malt and floral notes. Fresh and fizzy.

First offering from this brewery and it is a delightful introduction. I was going to save some of this large bottle to share with others at a meal, but I was so intrigued by it that, well, I left very little for the others. I will give it a full review on a second tasting.

For this tasting, five words according to format: pretty, floral, Sweet, soft, food.

And a suggestion.... The chamomile oils coating my mouth went away once I ate some food. Save this to share with others at dinner.

10/27/17 retaste on tap at the just-opened taproom at the Beer Temple. Refreshing after exercise, but didn't have this with food as I planned. So, I'll have to buy a bottle. No change in rating until I have it with food.

6/8/18 This saison made an excellent meal extraordinary. I had a spring fix prix menu with a strawberry theme and this delicate ale was a great complement to all four courses. A delightful culinary experience. Another saison does its job well.

welcome to MN, Perennial. On tap, into a tulip. Pours a very hazy pale yellow with a crown of lacy white head, modest retention, modest lacing. Nose is of chamomile (as advertised) and coriander...and oddly, a hint of ripe banana. Taste: follows the nose, though I get more fruit...in addition to the ripe banana, I also get some peach. The sweet fruitiness kind of battles it out with the more earthy floral and slightly bitter notes. In terms of feel, it is fairly well carbonated, almost creamy, with a little spritz and floweryness that starts midway and builds toward the end.
