COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This smooth ale tastes citrusy with yeasty notes and a hint of peppery spice. Its dry finish and mild carbonation make it perfect for pairing with grilled chicken, rich fish dishes, and cheeses like camembert and brie.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a fluffy white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has notes of grass and sweet grains with a bit of light fruit underlying. Flavor is more sweet grains and sweet light fruit with some belgian spice and a hint of grass.

Hazy gold, with a little white head. Not much aroma, a little citrus. Citrus and yeast flavor. A little bitterness. Okay, but not great.

I actually forgot where this one came from as my Texas trip was just going from beer store to beer store. Anyway, it pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is slight saison funk, dry hops, some herbalness. Taste is similar. Slightly bitter and sufficiently hopped saison with citrus and spice notes. While I donít think that it is anything that special, I think that the rating it has here is somewhat too low.

A hazy copper-orange profile with a nice tan head, supplying healthy belgian lace. some slightly sticky resin hop aromatics, and rather citrusy from the get go. good carbonation with some light íbelgianyí sweetness upon first sip. The mouth-feel is dominated by medium bitterness that develops into a very VERY dry finish that lingers and is reminiscent of an extremely dry white wine. Many descriptions label this beer as a saison, but personally I thought it drank much more like a dry belgian style IPA. Worth a taste or two, but there are many superior counterparts out there.

Hazy amber with a thin foamy white head. The aroma is a bit faint but smells like dry caramel malt and light doughy esters. The flavor is estery and mild with some pale sweet amberish malts and a light leafy flavor and bitterness, with a light eccentric estery finish. A bit plain but not bad.

Wow I am surprised that the scores are so low... I thought this was a pretty good Saison just a little heavier than most but still very refreshing. Try it again!

Location: Draft at The Queen Vic, 9/10/13

Aroma: The nose of this one is yeast and a little spicy, pepper, some fruit, and mild alcohol
Appearance: The pour is orange with a decent head and some nice lace as well
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, yeast, spice, and fruit, not all that sweet, but a solid flavor
Palate: The feel of this one is solid, but not great, thereís a little heat, and some plus carbonation
Overall Impression: Wow, this one has a much lower score than I would have guessed. I thought this was a pretty tasty Saison. I guess Iíll be one of its higher raters.
