COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer you are holding is unique. A special strain of yeast and a warm fermentation produces a beer of exceptional flavor and aroma. An extended secondary maturation and bottle conditioning ensures all these unique qualities are preserved and evolve over time. Serve at 50°F in a tulip glass.

What to expect
This tawny orange beer pours with a rocky white head. Aromas of passion fruit, tangerine, and black pepper hit the nose. Flavor is a cascade of orange, lemon verbena, ginger and pepper. And in a second it is gone, finishing with a dry and lingering bitterness that awaits another sip.

Cellaring Information
Store upright in a dark dry place at cellar temperature (ideally at 50 degree). Cellar limit is 2 years.

Flavours of ginger, pears, lemon zest, wheat bread and orange peels. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, smooth texture and lively carbonation.

Indra (2607) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - APR 2, 2014
750ml bottle, cellar aged approx. 8 months. Wonderful aroma of tropical fruit, peppery spice, herbal and floral tones, along with suggestions of lemon, vanilla sweetness, crackery, biscuity malts, leafy, green hop and some faint clove and honey in the background. Thoroughly hazy medium golden in color with a lasting, rocky, voluminous white head and gobs of lacing. Flavor profile is full of yeast spice, citric fruit, green, grassy, herbal hop, showing some melon, orange and peppery qualities before the dry, refreshing, lightly bitter finish. Highly effervescent and active mouthfeel, almost prickly and very drying indeed with a medium-full body. Enjoyable rendition of the style.

Brigadier (2930) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2014
750 ml bottle
Thanks to buffalohead for sharing with me this very nice saison. It might have been a little past its prime but it was still a world class release with only a touch of funk. The total experience is one that shows you do not need to go to extremes to make something that stands out.

Aroma / Appearance - A bubbly clean head is a clear white. Underneath a strong flow of carbonation releases waves of starch, hay, and grasses. Light lemons add some needed depth. Without being overbearing it makes itself known.

Flavor / Palate - Fresh yeast tickles the tongue before settling on the back of the throat. Starchy, hay, and dryer sheets come along for the ride. A little different take on the saison style this lives up to the funk part of the brand. Hopefully they are around for the long haul and not just a flash in the pan.
