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 50F 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.

This is a cloudy orange gold beer w/ a foamy head. I am getting a lot of citrus in the nose which I would have guessed was from coriander were the ingredients not listed here. It is overall quite bright and fruity and some slight sweetness serves to emphasize this. Its got a nice full texture w/ carbonation that stop just short of being prickly. Some nice banana and clove notes come out as you dig in deeper. This is a nice Belgian ale and the brewers seem to have done wonders w/ this yeast. This is a definitely must for fans of the style.

DenverLogan (911) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2015
From a 12 oz bottle into a Chimay glass. Gold with head and lace. Aroma of wheat, banana, light herbs. Big carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Flavors of a wheat-banana soda, with a hint of field herbs and hay. Overall flavorful, refreshing while complex with an earthy and dryish finish.

beerbaaron (1718) - Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Unclear light gold, diminishing small white head. Light and refreshing. A little tang/funk. Its almost sweet until a hint of pepperiness and a bitterness interrupt. Great yeasty fruitiness. Lots of character. I like this.

Beautiful saison. Im not much in the rating mood but great crispness, hoppiness, yeast, and citrus characters. Will have to try their various varieties.

A lovely traditional saison. Every thing is spot on except for perhaps a lingering bitterness. Otherwise this beer rules.
