Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, tart lemon/lime, and sweet tarts. It pours a hazy dull yellow with a one finger white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus. The finish has moderate floral notes, light lemon/lime peel, and some faint grassy bitterness. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Bottle: Mild gush, hazy pale yellow body with a soapy, quickly receding stark white head. Aroma is fresh grass, lemon zest, mild hops, a touch of farmhouse yeasty tartness. Taste is light and refreshing, zesty lemon-lime, a hint of tartness, grassy, leafy hops, a mild blanket-like yeasty funk, finishing dryness with a fading lemon and orange tartness. Smooth, refreshing, quenching saison.

Draught in Burlington, VT. Pours a hazy yellow with decent head. Smells of citrusy lemon and earthy grass. Strong bitterness on the tongue complemented by the citrus. Light, refreshing and crisp. My girlfriend enjoyed her sip and she doesn’t even like beer. Awesome.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 750mL bottle during RBWG 2013. Golden pour with a nice off-white head, lots of lacing. Earthy, musty, a bit of phenolics in the aroma, some wood and a touch of funk, lemon, cedar, and grassiness. Not bad.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Snagged by my homie Nick at the anniversary fest. Thanks man! 750 poured into HF stemware. Clear piss yellow pour with a moderate white head that leave lacing and a slight film. Smell is lemon and juicy citrus with a slight barnyard funk. Taste is insanely refreshing, lemon, peppery spice, little funky hay. Carbonation is perfect and lights up the palette. Followed by a clean dry finish. I have had Arthur a few times before, and i think this batch outshines the last few i have had. I honestly don’t think I could be drinking a more perfect beer for this July afternoon.

Shared with timfoolery. Had this after Anna. A little more sour and a little less sweet with some slightly different earthy characteristics. Very good.

750mL bottle shared by Tim courtesy of zharsch. Appearance is thick light gold in color, solid looking, no clarity with a thick-ass head and thick lacing. Very frothy and cloudy head. Aroma is very cleaned up yet powerful Belgian yeast with spiky sharp pear, hints of apple. Flavor is similarly sharp esters, bitter peach and pear with the hops playing a bigger role. Its a very great way to tame a powerful yeast and make it very appealing without the over the top aspects. But in a way I miss the crazy characteristics.
