Aroma is peppery with some tropical fruit... the right nose for a saison. golden in color with a somewhat quickly dissipating head. flavor was fruity and spicy, but still not dry and malty. medium bodied. a good beer, but not a great saison.

Draught at the brewery. Clear golden yellow color. Nose of a proper saison (or even a tripel, or better yet the nose has qualities which are present in both saison and tripel): spicy, mild lemon fruit scents, light wheat scents as well. Flavor is spicy, with moderately harsh alcohol present (for 7%?), peppery on the tongue, a little oily and moderately thick on the tongue. Has some light hay and grain flavors, with some candy sugar as well, though most of this beer is noticed in the alcohol and sour notes. High octance, or at least it appears that way, and I think there’s a lot of unfermentables as well, as it was a little too sweet and a little too thick.
