This is a great beer to have on a warm summer day.
A hazy yellow color, it has a small white head that left a bit of lace.

Nice aroma of grapefruit and lemon. Some sweet malt, a little bit of spice.

Not quite as tasty as I expected from the aroma. Lemon and grapefruit, but muted. Bready.
Some peppery spice late.

A very drinkable beer. I would have liked a little more out of the taste.

750 mL bottle purchased at the original location. Served at 50F in a HF wine glass.

A: Sightly hazy golden-orange body with a creamy whit 1.5" ead thst folds on for 2-3 minutes leaving thick lacing in the glass. Medium swirlinh revives the head. Medium size bubbles in the carbonation.

S: Stong scent of lemon and citrus over an earthy/bready base. No hop presence and malts are jst above background levels. Hints pf pepper and lactic acidity.

T: Citrusy lemon balanced against the sweetness and bitterness of grapefruit. That sounds counterintuitive, but it's a fresh, bright grapefruit flavor...alomst fresh squeezed. Hints of barnyard and classic earthy saison round out the flavor. Lingering touches of grapefruit nd a slight residual (non hop) bitterness associated with citrus peel. I like that, but some may not. Finishes dry.

M: Light bodied, this is a great summer beer for beach, post lawn-cutting or just sipping all aftenon with good friends. Medium carbonation (slightly low with respect to Belgian styles). Not cloying or slick, this beer leaves you wanting more.

O: A nice Amercan twist on a classc Belgian style. NS has done very well with their fruited beers and this is not exception. I'm told this will be a year round offering. Es, please.

A-Cloudy yellow, nice carbonation and a three finger fluffy head

S-Wheat and grass than an odd mix of artificial lemon, not much grapefruit.

T-No balance. Starts wit the artificial lemon then has some wheat and grass. THe grapefruit isn't really there.

M-Medium bodied, with nice carbonation.

O-Poor balance, slightly artificial, a definite miss.
