Good beer. Nice hoppy flavor. Aroma is pleasing to to the nose. Can taste a hint of what seems like lime afterwards.

Thanks to someone for sharing this at bu11zeye’s 10,000th tasting in April 2012. Pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of flowers, biscuit malt and sweetness. The flavor is yeasty with some orange and floral notes from the hops, as well as some grass and biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Draft at Jimmy’s No. 43. Pours hazy golden yellow with a small, foamy white head. Aroma is grassy hops, citrus and a bit of sweet honey. The taste has qualities of both an IPA and a saison with notes of grapefruit, slightly bitter hops, saison yeast, brett, pine, grassy hops and floral notes. Finish has notes of both yeast and hops. There’s a really nice flavor profile going on with this beer. Very enjoyable.

Cybercat (3371) - Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Pours a somewhat hazy amber with a fairly thick off-white head. Hearty, hoppy aroma has a fruity, yeasty overtone and a whisper of honey sweetness. Flavor has a hoppy, slightly bitter core and lively notes of sweet apple, yeast and fresh-cut green wood, as well as a touch of honey. Yep, a little saison-y. Firm, lively texture leaves a hoppy and yeasty finish, rather like a good saison mixed with an IPA. The dry-hopping definitely comes through when this heads downstairs. Sit with one and enjoy.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - MAR 11, 2013
Bomber. A hazy pale amber beer, with a large, frothy/creamy, mostly lasting, white head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly to moderately hoppy (graperuit, pine, resin), lightly to moderately yeasty (earth), with notes of tropical fruits, chalk, pepper. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, very long finish, with moderate bitterness, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Very peppery, with some slight off notes in the aroma. However, rather nice. Would have preferred a fresh bottle. It could have been a different story...

Bottle. Orange golden color. Floral hops, grapefruit and pineapple in the aroma. Floral oily hops, grapefruit and white pepper in the flavor. Slightly bretty. Tart notes. Complex and delicious brew.

22 oz. bottle served in a Firestone Walker tulip. Bottled February 3, 2012. A: Pours a solid golden color with some slight haze. A thick and airy white head forms on the pour. It recedes slowly to a frothy and bubbly ring. Sticky lace is left down the glass. S: Yeasty body with a ton of fruity esters and some funk. Green hops, orange pith with some mild peach flavors. It’s wrapped around some funk and light cracker malts. T: The yeast is a little more subdued on the palate and the IPA side sort of takes over. Even for being 5 months old there still is some nice grassy hop flavors with pale and biscuit malts. There is some mild funk to it as well. M: Medium to light bodied with nice carbonation. The finish is slightly grassy in nature. O: Nice balance of yeast and base IPA. The hops still held up after this time and it played nicely with the bretty funk.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2012 On tap at CPK, London. It pours a clear golden colour with a big soapy white head. Lasting foam. Aroma is fruity hops and barnyard. Peaches, hay, brett and flowers. Taste is mildly bitter with some fruity hippiness again and a touch of brett. Big farmhouse character and flowery pineappley flavours. Mouthfeel is medium to oily with good carbonation. Overall, this is a great combo btw IPA an Saison.
