Bottled 1163 so bottled April 26, 2013

A: Pours a lightly hazy yellow color with 2+ fingers of head that slowly bubbles down to a cap

S: Light Belgian yeast, lighter fruits, a definite lemon note, and some wheat malts

T: Starts off with a very light Belgian yeast and spicy note and then goes into some fruitiness and lemongrass notes. Finishes with some more light lemon notes and light malts

M: Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation

O: The champagne yeast definitely makes this saison unique, as well as the fact that it's a single-hop beer. It's very easy to drink given the 7.6%. Great summer brew, but it would work any time really. Good value and worth picking up

Had it fresh at the Brewery, priceless.
Bright amber yellow color with a thick head with medium retention.
Delicious citrus lemon sorachi type of aroma (off course!).
Superb flavor of "je ne sais quoi" in case you had never tasted Sorachi hops before. Tons of pineapples, lemon, herbs and green apples. Notes of Belgian yeast, white pepper and resins.
Dry, bitter and lemon acid aftertaste.
A bit astringent with a mild sourness.
Light body with decent carbonation, sparkling type. 7.6% ABV, no f...way, they are liars or magicians.
Excellent beer, very flavorful, original, pleasant to drink with drinkability at its best.
