COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a awesomely killer beer that we brewed up with the dudes from 4 HANDS BREWING in the STL. We put in a little pink peppercorn just because we could and bummed a great yeast from PERENNIAL ARTISAN ALES from way south Saint Louis.

Pours a golden color with a big lively head... aromas are belgian yeast lots of bubblegum and a touch of spice. On the palate its very sticky but with a ton of carbonation to counteract its stickiness... I was unimpressed. Lots more sweet bubblegum and over peppered spices made for a heavy handed saison that I just couldn’t get into. Not horrible but being a huge fan of saisons I was expecting more.

This poured a hazy bright straw yellow with a white head. Aroma was spices, light lemon Peel, and some dusty notes. Flavor was a bit over carbonated, dry, and spice notes a little artificial tho

750ml bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a clear gold with about 2 fingers of white head. Aroma is mostly spicy yeast. Taste is about the same. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, very good. I would gladly drink it again.

Bottle: The aroma consists of Belgian yeast, sweet citrus, lemon grass, pepper. It pours a slightly hazy gold with a large white head. The flavor starts with Belgian yeast and citrus. The finish has lemon grass, lemon/orange peel, light pepper, and just a hint of bandaid. It’s light bodied with lively and somewhat fizzy carbonation.

Bottle - big foamy head, medium straw color, Belgian spice aroma, VERY spicy flavor - almost too much at first, but mellows out a little as you keep drinking it

It poured a yellow color with a white head. The aroma was cloves, spice, a bit of hops and pepper. The taste was barnyard, spice, pepper and some citrus. A decent Saison.

dchmela (2614) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Hazy light yellow pour with a thin white head. Fruity, sweet malt and marshmallow aroma. Crisp malt, light body, touch of sweetness and pepper spice in the taste. Nice brew.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Interesting name. The 750mL bottle poured hazy deep gold with thin off white head. The aroma is full of apricots, apples and yeasty saison spiciness then a sense of soft wheat and bubble gum. The taste basically follows suit with a nice load of sweet light skinned fruitiness mixing with saison yeast spiciness and then some smooth soft wheat notes. Nice.
