Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2013
On tap at Rustico in Alexandria. Served in a stange. Pours a fairly-hazy golden-peach color with a thin, bubbly white head that feel somewhat quickly into a lasting thin collar atop the beer. The nose started with some light stone fruits beside some light grain and straw. As it warmed, there was a bit of light spice and mild tropical fruit. Along with the slight acidity, the fruits gave off a bit of a kiwi and pineapple impression. Flavor was even better with the acidity picking up and really carrying the flavors through. Beautiful fruit and strong along with a touch of backing pepper and yeasty spice. Body was light and crisp, really popping. It was incredibly difficult to put this one down. Ultra delicious and one of the best saisons that I’ve ever had.

On draught at Wild Beer at Jessop House, Cheltenham, Gloucs. Hazy gold with white head. There is a pleasant tart fruitiness in both the aroma and initial flavour, nicely bitter and drying. Later there is a sharp peachy note along with a resinous woody note. Very pleasant.

Robe dorée, fine mousse. Nez superbe de fraîcheur, sur le houblon, les levures, une touche boisée, des fruits jaunes. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée, belle note amère de pamplemousse, fine bulle, longue finale sur l’amertume du houblon. Une vraie saison de soif

Draft - A slightly hazed golden color, medium white head. Aroma is full of funky barnyard, hay, white grape peel, distinct spiciness. Nice little punch to it....more citric fruits come out with the sourness, lemon grass, yeasts. Good stuff.
