Deep apricot with a thick white head and virtually no lacing. Apples, pear, barnyard funk, Belgian fruity yeast and some floral qualities. Taste follows exactly. Not as carbonated as expected with a light medium body. Overall this was one I liked in a style I'm not a huge fan of.

On-tap @ Copper Mine Pub in North Arlington, NJ.

Hazy amber color with a small white head. Good retention, slight lacing. Fruity aroma, a hint of cherry, balanced with spicy hops. Medium bodied and effervescent with a very dry finish. A touch on the heavier side for a saison but still so drinkable, as the alcohol is well hidden. Another solid beer from this outstanding brewery.
