COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We use only imported Belgian malt, German noble hops and our brouwerij west yeast. We chose not to duplicate the standard "peppery/spicy" saison profile and instead go after bubble gum esters and noble hop aroma. Extra is Bright and malty, with a firm bitterness and a dry finish. Hazy gold in color. 6.5% ALC/VOL and of course no spices added.

Aroma - bready, yeasty. Citrus hop notes secondary. Straw color with some haze. Bitter taste. Not sweet. No floral notes when tasting. I dig it.

500ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Nice saison this one. You donít see many of their beers here in Australia and I grab them when I can. Rating from 2013.

jredmond (5295) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Brendan at his CFAII celebration. Pours a hazy amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is very yeast-forward with additional notes of spice, malt and cereal. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side and pretty refreshing; flavors of spicy yeast, sweet malt, cleaner, bubblegum and light earthy hop.

kramer (4895) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear gold body under a one finger frothy white head that left some delicate lacing. The nose is rather light and delicate with some pale malt, light hoppiness, and a nice delicate yeastiness. The flavor isnít as great as I was expecting, itís a bit bland and boring with just a light bit of spiciness from the yeast. Itís fairly light bodied and dry though, making it rather easy drinking and refreshing. Nice soft gentle natural carbonation. Not the most complex tasting, but the light spiciness is all from the yeast instead of using spices. Pretty decent stuff.

JustDrinkIt (258) - Arizona, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Hazy golden orange pour with abundant rocky white head. Soft aromas of citrus peel, spice and yeasty funk. Flavors follow the aroma, much more yeast and citrus... canned peaches.

Hazy golden yellow with a bright white head, moderate retention and lace. Gentle hop aroma, with bananas and a hint of clove. Taste is similar, with a yeast presence to fill out the profile. Light body lively carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a crisp finish.
