On-tap at Churchkey DC on 20 October 2013. Listed as "Saison Pecore".

Pours a clear orange color. Brought to me with 1 finger of yellowish-white head. Nice retention and pretty deltas of lacing.

Smell is lightly spicy, crisp in a delicate citrusy spicy way. A bit of peppercorn, lime. Light, high in the nose. Crisp and clean, backed by a little bit of grain. That description makes it sound all over the place, but everything fits together like puzzle pieces. The lime is a really nice complement.

Taste is a little rougher. Has some bite, and is kinda sharp on the edges. I wish it had more of the lightness and crispness that comes through in the smell. There's a juicy orange bready thing going on in the finish, making it more interesting. A little bitter there, too.

Feel is quite nice. Medium-light body, but with grinding carbonation late. Delicate but forceful.

A really good saison. The lime and spice in the nose is excellent, and if that came through more in the taste, it'd be even better.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thick white head which gives way to nice lacing. The aroma is very inviting nice citrusy and yeasty notes are present along with a hint of lime and some hops at the end. The taste follows the nose yeasty and citrusy there is a litty funk as well. In the middle and end you get a hop bite. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated. Overall very solid and leaves you wanting more.

Had this at Brewer's Art recently, on tap.

Wonderful aroma, almost addicting. Incredibly drinkable. Hits on just the most minimal amount of Saison funk to make it blend with the style while also going in its own, powerful direction. Smooth, sweet, charismatic.

Less wild, more sublime. Yet another top-notch offering from the fine talents at Brewer's Art.

A hazy orangeish body with a large white head and plenty of good lacing and retention.
The aroma was great, with sweet citrus adn fruits, yeast and mild hops.
Citrus and yeast dominate the taste, but floral hops round out the experience. Quite complex.
Medium bodied, this was a good balance of bittersweet and hoppiness, and the ammount of carbonation was perfect.
I was very impressed since I think of a Saison as a difficult brew to make well; Brewer's Art did a great job; I could (and probably will) order several of these in one sitting.

Luminescent gold with a nice white lace, the aromas here are citrus rind, kaffir lime leaf, and melon. The taste is initially dominated by the lime leaf, but expands to include peach, melon, coriander and a pithy grapefruit finish. Nice medium bodied mouthfeel with lively carbonation. Lovely beer.

Appearance: Arrives at the table with a hazy golden color and a nice head that leaves some decent lacing around the glass

Smell: Very interesting aromatics that contain floral, citrus pith and kaffir lime leaves

Taste: Herbacious floral tones up front, followed by a pithy citrus bitterness after the swallow; the kaffir lime leaves come through on the finish as well

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Extraordinarily complex; a fascinating saison; I could sniff this all night

Had this at the Brewer's Art. Served in a chalice, the color is light gold with a thin but long lasting white head, not much lacing. Smell is very much of citrusy hops with a slight spiciness present. Taste has a strong assertive hop bitterness over a smooth lemony malt with some light melon notes. Mouthfeel is medium/thin with a lively level of carbonation. This is another really solid and refreshing summer seasonal from the Brewer's Art.

Pours a clear, dark golden and copper color with a wispy white head that leaves a few spots of lace.
Aroma is pale matl, grain, citrus lime and some other zesty, citurs fruit notes. (they used Kaffir limes and Grains of Paradise)
Flavors of bleached pale malt, heavy grain with some buttery notes, some herbal bitterness and light citrusy, fruity notes.
Mouthfeel is very full and alive. Big time grain hit and some alcohol hiding in there. Finishes with a bold but refreshing citrus hop twang.
Drinkability is light and refreshing with just enough oomph to really make a nice beverage.
