750 ml bottle was poured into a large Duvel snifter.

Appearance: A two finger billowy head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a pale yellow color with good clarity and vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the middle of the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Saison yeast, vanilla, spicy, white pepper, pilsner malts, pale malts, and warm alcohol.

Taste: Same as above. Chewy malts, spicy, pale, vanilla, green apple, powdery saison yeast, and warm alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, crisp, some alcohol, dry, light to medium bodied, and high carbonation.

Overall: Pretty nice BSPA. A little bit heavy on the alcohol, but still good. Will look for more of this on my way through Fort Point.

From a growler. Pours slightly opaque, bright yellow in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is big pear, light peach a good dose of Belgian spices--coriander, clove. Medium bodied, slightly sweet, with medium carbonation...super smooth. Not a style I typically get into, but this is about as good as it gets domestically. Would get this again. Good beer and definitely worth seeking out if you love this style.

22oz bottle poured into a teku

A- pours a slightly hazy golden-yellow color with a small foamy white head that disappears quickly, leaving nothing behind

S- peppery and spicy yeast up front gives aromas of clove, cracked pepper, spicy yeast, must, banana, phenols

T- peppery clove up front, followed by spicy yeast, banana, must, light phenolic notes, finishes dry with more spicy yeast on the linger

M- medium body with moderate-low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish

O- solid example of the style, not many breweries still attempt this awesome style
