Pours a hazy yellow to orange-ish color with a light tan head. In the aroma, orange citrus to a a small pine hop and a small earthiness. In the taste, dry pine to dry orange citrus hops, with a small earthiness underneath it all. A hop bite and medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a note of dry orange juice citrus and a small earth in the aftertaste. Nice hops in a nice saison base.

Rich, hazy copper with a solid couple of fingers of off-white head. Excellent retention. Nice lacing.

Bold tropical fruit aromas, pineapple, mango, some citrus, banana,guava, passionfruit. Sweet bready malt and some spicy yeast lay beneath.

Delicious hop-derived fruity flavors. Mainly overripe pineapple with some guava and citrus. Some grainy breadiness from malt. Juicy up front, but finishes dry. Nice spicy bitterness lingers well past the swallow.

Fairly light-bodied with high carbonation.

A very interesting and delicious beer. I had recently brewed a saison using all NZ hops, but obviously not enough, because while I did get similar flavors and aromas from them, I did not get nearly the amount that this beer contains. Highly recommend this one.

A - Pours with a massive, three finger head of white foam full of fish eye bubbles. The body is a hazy, dark copper color with streams of bubbles that support the head as it settles slowly and leaves nice lace.

S - Spicy, citrusy hop aromas with notes of lemongrass, coriander, and pepper as well as some caramel malt.

T - Bready malt and some grassy, herbal hops up front. Notes of black pepper, lemon pith, coriander, and light toffee. Finishes with lemongrass, anise, and musty hops.

M - Medium-thick body, moderately high carbonation, and a very dry finish.

D - Very interesting and drinkable. The hop character is strong, but also very herbal which keeps it in balance with the spicy yeast and the style's overall character. Another nicely made beer from a brewery that time and again has proven to be one of the best out there.

A: this one gushed from the bottle. 3.5 finger slightly off white foamy head on a murky deep gold with amber hues body.

S: you can easily smell this one from two feet away. well rounded yeast, banana/pineapple fruity esters and candied oranges with a subtle herbal note. As the foam settles the hops including grapefruit, pine and earthy notes come through more strongly.

T: Interesting play between the fruity esters and hops. yeast and fruits seem to dominate up front with the finish more of a grassy/floral hop note which lingers for quite some time. Lacks the sharpness/peppery note of many in the genre.

M: medium body and high carbonation.

Overall: One of the best smelling saisons I have had. The flavor is more interesting than it is great but still a nice tasting beer. This one is a must try overall.
