Poured up at GABF 2012 with a crystal clear gold with a thin white head. The aroma has a nice level of saison like yeasty spiciness backed up by some sugary malt sweetness followed by just a light sense of earthy notes. The taste seems similar with sweet sugary malts mixing with spicy saison yeastiness with a light degree of lemon grass notes that add an earthy tone to the experience. To help balance out the sweetness I get a black pepper note from time to time. Pretty tasty stuff.

Tap. Poured clear golden color with a large frothy white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate lemon and spice aroma. Medium body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium spice & sweet flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Momo’s, Light gold pour, slight white head. Aroma has some lemongrass accents, a hint of green tea. Flavor is earthy, herbal, minty, pick up the lemon and green tea in the flavor as well. Some ginger notes in the finish. Smooth mouthfeel. Much better than expected.

Great American Beer Festival, 2012. Opaque yellow color, appropriate for a saison. It sweet with yeast, as well as coriander and yeast. Good palate, and the lemongrass nicely compliments the other flavors.
