Big foamy head, hazy gold color, yeasty aroma. Taste has a sweet yeasty peppery zing. It finishes with the white pepper and pears. An interesting beer!

Okay saison but a bit too peppery to me. Sweetness of pear prevails but pepper overwhelms it.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bomber from Pinocchio’s, Media. Really nice pour, though at times the carbonation was unruly. Fluffy light orange with just the faintest haze. Nose was lightly fruity, mellow, with only hints of spice. Mouthfeel not quite as active as feared, but just shy of too much. Flavors are generally fairly muted, overall quite dry but too little of the fruit and spice come through. Light, refreshing, but fades fast in both flavor and memory.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a clear light gold with a decent white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, and malt. Taste is lemon, yeast, grass, malt, and spice. Good.

Enjoyed a draft at Basso’s in St Louis. A very solid effort by 4 Hand brewery. While saissons are not for everyone, those who like saissons will enjoy this. Much better than its class ranking.
