Pours a hazy orange with a white, light foamy head. Loads of bubbles in the body. Smells of crackery grain, pale malt, grassy, earthy hops, and gentle Belgian yeast. Tastes of soft malts, honey, yeast dough, a touch of grain, a hint of yeasty spice, tea-like and floral hops. Dry with a lingering bitterness. Smooth carbonation, light, prickling, moderate mouthfeel. Excellent saison.

Sampled on tap at the Craft Beer Market in Calgary. This was an extremely bright a fruity Saison, so much so that I intially wondered if our server got the order correct. Upon further tasting, I found more of the pepper, honey and peach. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer and would love to have another run at it. It is crisp, bright, and easy to enjoy.

Pours a big, bubbly head with a golden yellow, clean color.

Has aromas of crisp citrus with unripe orange among slightly spiced wet grass. Peppery spices get a mild, dough touch to them, due to a distinct, slightly tart, lemony, yeast foundation. Reveals a convincing interplay between gentle, floral hops and mild, spiced yeast.

The taste mirrors the nose to a certain degree, with a fruity, lemony beginning, revealing clove, cardamon and pepper, together with orange zest. Mouthfeel is outstandingly smooth, all flavors get coated up by a mellow yeastiness, which provides a pleasant complexity to the refreshing, slightly sour fruits. Has a crisp spiciness with a biscuity, dry hoppy finish, and a metallic hint added from the high carbonation. Very round, refreshing and versatile, while staying at lower abv, perfect example of a traditional saison.
