32 oz. growler filled at Vista bev., south Salem, NY

Pours clear lite straw, off white head, leaves a delicate tiny bubble film, and nice looking fields of low sheeting and plenty of fine lace

Nose of tropical fruits, grapefruit and pinapple.

On the palate I get spicy citric and floral notes, with a slight sour bite greatly adding to the interest and complexity. Saison yeast strain also meshes nicely with the citrus and spice bite. Fresh tasting and flavorful. Highly enjoyable offering, happy to get to enjoy this one with some goat cheese and salad.

T: Interesting saison. Very little pineapple. Some sweetness.

M: Nice level of carbonation, you can really feel the bubbles.

O: Ok, good, but different.

Poured on tap at Pizza Paradiso Dupont in a sampler flight.

Real nice brass lemon gold body, with good thin pinhead carbonation always present. Soft creamy white head is present and a whipped up collar to match. Body is a little cloudy maybe even slightly hazy also, and there's some thin lacing while consuming.

Nose is particular focused on Belgian like sucrose sweetness, with only a little farmhouse sense coming out at all. Lots of thick sugar, and not particularly fruity at all.

Palate finally brings some pineapple but it's very mild, with some little slight funk and bitterness. Juicy to thick palate feel. Very large hop floral aromatics on the finish, leaving a large garden mellow bitterness on the swallow. Mouthfeel seems to weaken strangely as time passes which seems odd.

Overall where's the pineapple? That being said it's still makes a drinkable beer, but not an ideal saison for myself.
