Pours into a large tulip glass a burnt orange color with a sticky full one finger head atop that settles very slowly,alot of chunks and swirlies in their.Yeasty aromas with a tinge of lemon with a light floral element as well.Flavors start out with the yeast note followed by slightly sour lemon followed by some earthy/black pepper in the finish.It's got some age and the yeast is large but it held up well,well made.

Polarizing and complex, the worlds of America's hops and that of Belgian yeast converge often and with an array of flavors, balances and varying success. But the dry and peppery saison trends hoppy even without the Americanized twist, but the copious additions of floral, fruity and deeply bitter hops kick the style into a brand new gear.

Its doughy haze is cast against a golden-straw backdrop. Its billowing off-white condenses to rocky proportions with the perfume of tropical, citrus and melon wafting about. A tingle of white wine and pepper entices the nose while its supple sweetness of cookie dough is light, grainy and remiss of angel-food cake.

As the flavors develop over the middle palate, the sweetness quickly dissolves and the fruit and spice round into a balanced medley. White grapefruit, lemon, lime, green apple, green grape, kiwi, gooseberry, passionfruit and pineapple trend dry instead of succulent and eventually culminate with a sprite taste of sparkling white wine, equipped with a bubbly vinous twang. White pepper, cumin and lemongrass balance the fruit and offers a complex bitter tandem with the tartness.

Its bitter finish keeps the ale light and dry while its enveloping carbonation pulls the beer from the tongue and forces a quick finish. Bitter, spicy and dry to finish, the ale becomes remarkably drinkable and refreshing with a stern carbonic bite and light alcohol warmth. Its grassy aftertaste borrows from citrus peel and pine and grips the gullet tightly for the long haul.

Golden, lightly hazy body with persistent white head. Spicy wheat, lemon, pepper aromas. Light malt up front with spice, pepper, a touch of citrus and grassy hop notes. A thick, but dry body and great drinkability. A nice, hoppy saison.

A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface.
S: Light to aromas of gooseberries are present in the nose along with hints of yeast.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the gooseberry flavors are a bit stronger and linger through the finish. Only slight amounts of bitterness are noticeable.
M: It feels medium-bodied and dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is an interesting beer that combines the dryness and good drinkability of a saison with the hop aromas and flavors of an IPA (without the bitterness).

A nice dry Saison with a very European hop character. It pours nice and looks lovely (golden yellow with a creamy beige head). It is medium bodied and has a very sweet floral and doughy yeast character. Smooth, velvety, fragrant, dry as a bone. Quite delicious; really it is everything it should be.
