RATINGS: 60   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.36/5   EST. CALORIES: 195   ABV: 6.5%
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.

Bottle - gold pour with a fairly frothy lace - I was excited to see they went for a pure and simple recipe, but their desire to focus on bubblegum esters is a little disappointing - they certainly got what they were going for - starts a little sweet, with moderate bubblegm esters - thankfully, these subside through the middle and it dries out a bit, bringing a nice noble hop profile and slightly peppery phenolics - I like it okay, but the focus in the aroma and flavor profile are not what I typically like in the style.

pours clear and bright gold with a very nice creamy white head offering good retention and lacing. orchard fruitiness - some almost rotten notes though; dusty white grapes, very spicy and peppery, bitter herbs - some astringency. light carbonation, light to medium body; drying herbal-spicy-peppery finish. o-k.

Pours golden yellow with a thin wispy white head. Aroma is earthy, pear, bubblegum and hint of floral. Taste is sweet with a touch of tartness, none of the usual spicy saison characteristics. Medium bodied with a dry clean finish.

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 don’t see many of their beers here in Australia and I grab them when I can. Rating from 2013.

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.
