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.

Pours a pale amber body with a medium frothy head. Nice flowery aroma of hops with a sour feel. Nice taste that matches the aroma, sour hoppy flavours.

bnokk (422) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - APR 28, 2016
APPEARANCE- Dark straw color, hazy complexion. Light head. NOSE- definitly crisp and clear saison. Definitly not corriander or cardamom. FLAVOR- typical saison flavor, but it has a bit of dankness (not like ipa danknes, but oldish notes) NOTES- Excellent beer, has a wierd taste that I can only describe as ’old’. I wish I could be more articulate.
