Aroma is citrus/pine, fresh yeast and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is citrus, malts, tropical fruit, slight spices/Belgian yeast and a sweet/mildly hoppy finish.

L- Straw colored, small lacy head. Crisp and light look. Looks alright.
S- Floral, sour brett aroma, lemon, sweet candy, sugar all compiled together to create an extremely nice aroma.
T-Sour and crisp lemon and lime with even more citrus, brett is very present. Extremely tasty.
F- Crisp and dry. Just the way I like it.
O-This was a very nice saison made by an extremely honorable/respected brewery. Every sip was savored. A very well made saison that I will drink again.

The fairly clear golden yellow beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 1 1/2” ivory head that visibly but slowly recedes to leave a thin irregular island of foam on the surface and a small ring around the glass with a few spots of lacing on the sides of the glass. Sipping creates a couple of arches of lacing and some widely scattered patches, most of which slide back down to the ring around the glass.

The aromas include some citrus—lemon and lime—along with a bit of white wine, some light tropical fruits and some white peppery spiciness.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose there is the citrus, some white wine and, in the background, some tropical fruits. In addition there’s some light sweetness, some bready character from the malt, just a bit of tartness, some white pepper spiciness and a very light herbal bitterness from the hops.

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied and a bit prickly from the moderate carbonation. The dry finish begins as the sweetness and bready malt begin to fade allowing the citrus, the yeast flavors, the light tartness and the touch of white pepper to show along with the light herbal bitterness that in the dry ending after everything else has disappeared.

Overall a very refreshing, drinkable beer that I’ve enjoyed trying and would be happy to have again. The aroma/flavor profile seems to me to be a bit unique for a saison and well worth exploring again. But, all things considered, I probably will not be adding this to my regular rotation.

This is a refreshing, thirst-quenching yet very complex, flavorful and multi-layered farmhouse ale. Hoppy, tart and just a little bit funky. A very enjoyable beer.
