COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of the rustic Wallonian Saison style is a harmonious blend of rustic grains, spicy yeast and unique sauvignon blanc tones. Inviting lemon grass and gooseberry meet peppery spice and fresh grain aromas. Spicy Belgian yeast create a complex yet dry and refreshing canvas with splashes of citrus and stone fruit with a bright tropical white wine finish. Hop bitterness is assertive yet harmonious rounding out slightly tart and refreshing.

tightslice (159) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Mountain View, CA. A nice mix of hop, grass, sweet dry earth, and spicy yeasts. Very pleasant on a warm summer picnic.

ericdevin (673) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle from The Bier Stein, Eugene. Pours a light, fluffy, straw color, slightly cloudy, with lots of white head. Aroma slightly peppery, with sharp citrus note underlying, very nice. Stringent yeast character, too. Body lively, with a citric sweetness that leaves a slippery feeling behind. I tend to prefer my saisons a bit drier than this, but still a lovely beer.

Pours a light hazy golden with a finger of head. Nose is spicy Belgian yeast, lemon, grass. Taste is lots of lemon, spicy yeast, a bit grassy, peppery, a bit bready, dry and a bit bitter on the finish. It's alright, lacking a bit in complexity. Could definitely be better, but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
