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.

gringo332 (549) - Richardson, Texas, USA - DEC 13, 2014
The beer pours a reddish copper color with a medium head. Aroma has some candied sugar with some mild citrus. Taste is very close to the aroma with sweet coconut, butterscotch and a quick blast of citrus. Nice finish.

Draft at Firestone taproom with Linh. Pours a light golden body with thick white lacing. Aroma is bright fruity yeast, citrus, lemon and grass. Mouthfeel is active carbonation, medium to light-bodied with notes of lemon, grass, yeast, light spice and some fruit. Nice saison, and particularly fresh on draft at the source.

maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 30, 2014
Bomber. Yeast and some strange rubbing alcohol fumes ("retro-nasal burn," said one person at the table), and some fruity hopping. Light lemon yellow color. Mlld sweet and sour fruity initial, gentle citrus, thin hopping, and a touch of funk. Thin-medium body. Nice enough -- but not as much as I’d expected. The dry hopping is pleasant. Fruit flavors are light all through the palate.

Bomber. Dry nose or lemon, some minerals, a bit of alcohol burn, light malt. Sweet flavor, lemon-orange, minerals, grapes and other fruits. Oily, silky body. light and interesting.
