This beer is brewed in the Belgian Saison style (country farm house ale). A potent yet delicate ale, brewed with a unique Belgian yeast which develops a spicy, fruity flavor. Enormously complex. Available from May to around August.

Bottle. The pour was a crystal clear medium orange with a slight yellow hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) fluffy white head that had decent longevity, receding down to a large foamy puddle of residue producing some good sticky lacing. The aroma had a strong wheat presence along with a light straw malt, a herbal hop and a soapy yeast with notes of banana, pear, caramel and a bit of a peppery spice. The taste was mildly sweet and yeasty with notes of caramel and other fruit esters early on and then become mildly sweet and acidic with a healthy dose of fruit and spices and a decent alcohol presence at the end. The flavor lingered for a little while having kind of boozy appeal. Mouthfeel was a few shades beyond light in body with a nice dry texture and a lively carbonation. Overall a great representation of the style. Spicy, fruity and strong, just wonderful...

Best by December 2013, so a little past its prime according to the brewer. Pours a slightly hazy orange-golden with a fair-sized khaki head that settles to a thinner ring and leaves some soapy lace. Nose involves some spicy, tart yeast with pepper and clove, a bit of green apple, plenty of hearty dough, a bit of lemon, quite zesty and invigorating. Not incredibly sweet, a bit tart, fairly bitter. Medium bodied, very soft, a bit oily, with a quick spicy and fruity finish. Fresh, I’m sure this would pop a little more on the palate, but otherwise I’m totally fine with this. Great yeast influence on the aroma and taste.

If I had to pick a saison I’d pick this one! This is far from my favorite beer style, but as far as saisons go, this is a great one. Very fruity, but not offputtingly thick like a lot of saisons! Pirates!! !
