22 ounce nottle courtesy of CaptainCougar, thank you sir! Boy, I wish I could read my handwriting. I remember this one as a middle of the road saison that was pleasant enough.

BBB63 (6051) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 9, 2014
Bottle either 2010 or 2011 and served in a Half Acre snifter: pours a clean golden hue with a fizzy head and okay lace. This is what happens when you dig around your "cellar" and find a Saison that you had no idea you had and had no intention of aging. Good news is that it is still quite drinkable even if the lemon has likely faded as has any pronounced hop profile. Nice whisper-y pale grain and flowery character along with a dash of yeast spices. No noticeable aging effects like cardboard nor band-aid. Actually it is more than just drinkable, it is pretty damn tasty.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is yeast, wheat and some grain notes. I don’t get much fruit in the aroma which is a bit of a surprise. The flavor is better than the aroma. I get a lot of wheat and yeast notes, but I also get some tropical fruit notes. I get some pineapple, orange and mango. There is also a nice amount of white pepper in the aroma which compliments the fruit nicely. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not the best beer I have had from Half Acre, but a solid American-made saison.
