Bottle. Batch#1 Pours a hazy medium yellow orange. Lasting large rocky white head. Aroma is fruity, citrus, yeasty, light peppery. First sip..wow. Just perfect. So balanced. Everything is just right and flows so seamlessly. Sweetness, bitterness, tartness, yeastiness, dryness all there and working together beautifully. Supremely drinkable and refreshing. This beer makes me happy.

750ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip
Batch-1 May 2013
A - This beer is cloudy with a golden pale color, a massive rocky white head slowly settles with cavernous mounds of bubbles. Sloppy wet lacing sinks down the sides of the glass.
S - Grain dust, earthy hay, grainy pilsner malts, lemons and minerals, the yeast is tangy and bready with a very mild funk and timid white pepper phenolics. Mushrooms come out once it warms up.
T - Tangy lemons, mineral soda water, slightly acidic, the dusty hay and grassiness fade quickly as it warms. Bright tropical fruits work well against the grainy pale malt. Lemony tang really comes around on the backend along with a floral/herbal bitterness finishing crisp and clean.
M - Active seltzer-like carbonation, light body, crisp and clean.
Bright, dry, and very refreshing. A very nice Saison indeed. Extremely crisp with mineral water and tangy lemon taking the stage. I am thoroughly enjoying this beer on a brisk 28 degree November night.

Enjoyed this one at the Three Penny Taproom. What an awesome Saison... bright herbal flavors and a decent "funk" that I really enjoy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Color ambar pálido, tupido aunque uniforme, con espuma blanca ligera. Aromas de cereal, hierbas, fruta acidai y ligera madera. En boca, con densidad media, comienza con un dulzor ligero seguido de una acidez de mamzana y uva muy equilibrado. A esto se añaden toques de madera y los sabores propios del brett. Excelente.

Had this when I was in Arizona last week and I am glad I had it. Nice to have an American made Saison that still has that belgian yeast aroma and flavor in it. The Brett and oak are a really nice add, but doesn’t overpower to the beer and adds to the flavor. Excellent!
