Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours pale yellow with a sticky, foamy off-white head. Nose is white pepper, dry crackery malt, a bit of floral/perfume, and a minty note. Pretty similar taste. The white pepper is still there, and itís dried out a little more to make the floral/perfume note come through more. Finishes dry and tart, with a touch of yeast. A little sharp for my tastes, but love the dryness.

Itís definitely a sasion. Poured into pint glass from a 750ml bottle bought when I was up in St. Paul. Poured blond, slightly cloudy, nice big pillow of foam. Didnít take much to keep a nice head on the beer the whole time. Smells include nice citrus notes. This would be a great session beer, enjoyed on a summer day, even with the higher ABV content.
Taste was a slightly sour on the front side, with a sweeter aftertaste. Very well balanced. Great level of carbonation - if this were less bubbly, it would feel too flat for the taste.
Very enjoyable. Iíll be seeking more of this int he spring.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sulphurous, fresh aroma with some tartness and mouldered grass in the background. Dry. Taste has marked grapefruit bitterness and lovely tones of grass and hey. A bit thin body. Aftertaste is dominated by citrus fruit. Likeable saison although I am not very fond of the style.

750ml from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo. $10. Pours a semi-clear gold color, with a nice head. Iím getting a LOT of hop character in the nose. Interesting. Also getting some citrus and a little barnyard bread. Spicy. Full of carbonation, some Belgian character, but also very hoppy with those weird sorachi hops. Very refreshing. Excellent.
