i dont know why i always forget about these guys until i see their beer around, the few i have had from them have been excellent. they must not be getting around all that much yet. this beer is as clever as its name, a cardamom saison that is the best of light wheat malt, spicy belgian saison yeast, and subtle but distinctive cardamom pods. it would have never occurred to me to put this together, a real revelation here. pale hazy yellow beer with a nice head and visible carbonation poking up the surface. it smells like a saison first, i almost have to search for the cardamom. the yeast is fruity and a little tangy in the taste, and the malt base is so light that the yeast really comes through a lot. the cardamom is there more strongly in the flavor than in the smell, green and textured on the tongue, reminds me of cookies and muffins i ate in india. the flavor of cardamom is so intense on its own that i wonder how little of it was used, or where it was added in the brewing process, but i am extremely impressed with its authenticity and balance, not dominant like it is almost everywhere else it shows up in the united states. great idea, great execution.

Brewed with cardamom, coriander, and orange peel. Sprightly and tangy Belgian-inspired beer. Color is a hazy amber in the tulip with just a slim mustache of foam. Pleasant fruity aroma.

Taste is on the acidic side but malty with a definite sweetness. Flavors of fermenting pineapple, pears, and spice. The cardamom adds an intriguing note. There is a nice dose of the "meaty" taste as well. Not as much of the yeasty bitterness as a lot of Saisons.

Very flavorful and user friendly, though a sudsier mouthfeel would improve the drinkability. On tap at the brewery in far east Denver.
