Lot's of peppery, spicy yeast notes slightly overshadowing a fruity under layer. Mouth feel is dry but not astringent. Finishes fairly clean. Slight alcohol warming.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a two finger white head with sustained nice carbonation and great lacing. Aroma of grainy malt, saison yeast, peppery spice, light lemon tartness and a hint of funk. Flavor is wheat and grainy malt with a little huskiness, light apple, pear and lemon, pepper; finishes with light hop bitterness, residual grainy malt; leaning dry, but with a slight sweetness. Medium bodied with sharp peppery carbonation that meld well with the light pepper in the flavor. A nicely made traditional grainy malt saison with pleasant hints of fruit and spice. I was relieved that the tartness in the aroma was only a mild lemon tartness in the flavor, supported well by the malt. The flavor thins out just a little in the middle of the taste, but the lingering aftertaste redeems this with a traditional dry grainy finish with slight sweetness. Well done, I'll look for other styles from this brewery.

On tap at the brewery, Vancouver.
Strawberry blonde with white film. 3.75
Rubber, lots of lemon rind, and some herb on the nose. 4
Crackery malts, Band-Aid phenols, lots of lime zest, some bubble gum, and a touch of Noble grass. 4
Slight clovery leave and numbing linger.
Almost medium, round, fizzy. 4

Solid. Not afraid of the phenols, and doesn’t go the modern, over-hopped route. I wish it was a bit more “traditional” (i.e. weaker) but no quarrels here. 4
