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.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2013
From notes. Tasted at a tasting at Curtis’s old house, probably around early 2012, from a 750mL bottle. Pours clear, bright yellow/orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average, sticky lace. The nose is spicy saison yeast with a hint of sweet banana and a touch of green hops. The flavor is is more or less the same with a very pleasant hops and spicy saison yeast bitterness, very easy to drink. The body is just under medium with lively carbonation and a spicy yeast and nicely bitter finish.

Pours clear pale amber with a good head. Aroma is yeasty grainy malty spicy. Flavor similar, fruity a bit funky.

bmerz (728) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Hazy yellow. Aroma is floral, light pepper, a bit of farmy funk. Flavor is dusty, pepper and pith with a bit of peach juice. Feel is silty and moderately lively. Nice and easy though without much that stands out.

michcam8 (347) - Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2015
From a small bottle from a dipshit. Pours a cloudy golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma of lemon zest, little peppery, soap and light malt. Taste of lemons, slight tartness, soap, and muted wheat. Dry, souring finish. Light body. Okay beer. Not great, not bad. Would chug again.

lachrymalisis (419) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2015
one of the best American-made Saisons I’ve ever had. Bright, dry, aromatic notes of lemon zest and flowery black pepper, with a fruity freshness that makes the entire experience very mouth watering.

YigSvartka (174) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 6, 2015
Translucent, cloudy yellow/green with a substantially sized frothy head. Impressive retention. Pleasant sweet pastry malt, floral, citrus, and mildly hoppy aroma. Extremely light bodied, akin to a cloud. Smooth combination of flavours consisting of tart citrus, flowers, pastry like malt, and mild hops. Finish is slightly tart. Although the flavours aren’t extremely robust, this beer is quite refreshing and a delight to sip on.

Fratto (2803) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2015
On tap at the Pour House. Light pour with a big white head. Aroma is pepper, fruit, and yeast. Taste is lemon, other citrus, yeast, baking spice, and a little tart finish.

A very good and solid saison. There’s nothing spectacular here, but nothing detracts.

Awesome appearance and aroma. The flavor starts off perfect but then just fades away all too quickly. Other than that a very well-done beer.

Riktigt bra, lite syrlighet och citrus, lite grästoner viss blommighet och riktigt bra balans i smaken
