4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 5/28/2013. Pours lightly hazy pale straw color with a nice 2 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with plenty of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, pear, grape, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, grape, pepper, cracker, bread, light honey, floral, grass, light pine, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy herbal/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, grape, pepper, cracker, bread, light honey, light pine, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; with good robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a really excellent German Pilsner style! Great balance and robustness of hop, malt, and yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
355mL thanks to beerman6686. Pours full haze, glowing straw. Nice, rocky white foam. Looks like an awesome saison. Good retention. Nose is really nice peach, blood orange, pineapple, chamomile, gamey honey. Taste is similar more in the saison vein with a hefty near soapy hop bite that brings it nicely into unfiltered pils territory. Palate is where this one signs, sharp near metallic soapy hop bite that dials back after a second and creates a long, powerful noble hop bitterness with unripe cantaloupe and chamomile honey tea. Really exquisite.
