COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

For sale in Alberta? Beer distribution can be weird. Cloud and hazy dark amber with strong probability of tiny paticulate. Nice foamy merangue head and thick bubbly lace. Aroma of Belgian yeast and field = Saison, soft with faint spice. Dry, nice bodie, powdery spice, a bit of lemon. The server (Me) has this a little cold so I will hold the finish of the rating for 15 minutes to warm......as it warms the pepperiness really picks up...a little bit of soapiness as well. Store it upright and leave settled or the dust picks up big time.

(Bottle). Aroma and taste of yeast, floral and grassy hops and some sweet caramel and malt. Especially the yeast is prominent in the taste. The aftertaste is a little citrus toned and dry.

Skinnyviking (6791) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2012
Bottle. Low but lasting fluffy white head. Semi hazy dark yellow body. Fruity and pretty hoppy grass caramel aroma. Hops dominated fruity relatively light grassy flavor with sweet caramel notes. Low carbonation and a long but not strong bitter finish.

TheEpeeist (3292) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2012
25.4 oz bottle. Cloudy orange with a snowy white head. Nose is yeast, grass and honey; lovely. Oily medium body with a zing. Taste is candied lemon peel, grain, green banana and grass. Solid but not so special.

b79turner (221) - Alabama, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours hazy orange with a 1" white head. Nose is orange citrus, pine, floral...very nice! Taste is well rounded, wheat with a hoppy finish. Very well done. This is a great summertime light and easy drinking beer.

DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle. Nice hazy amber pour with plenty of head. Aroma is very musty with notes of European hops. Taste is slightly grassy, very clean with just a bit of a hop lift. Very easy to drink. Would have thought this would be in the saison style.

JStax (2857) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Poured from a 750 ml bottle received from Errl. Thanks! Pours a hazy light copper color with a relatively large white head of foam. Very good retention. The aroma is lightly spicy and hoppy with some sweet esters coming through just slightly. Taste is more of the same with more attention placed on the bitterness at first and moving toward a lighter, spicy side at the end.

reebtogi (4103) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 22, 2012
750ml capped bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that has decent retention and leaves some very nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is flowery with some lemon and hints of yeast. Taste is a fruity and grainy malt sweetness with a lemony citrus hop bitterness and a yeasty dry finish. Light to medium body with nice carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. A nicely done farmhouse ale that is quite tasty and highly recommended to sample.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Man, this was good. Is it a hoppy saison? A yeasty Pale? Some weird American/Belgian hybrid? Lots of nice assertive hops mixe delicate floral and citrus notes. Very complex, but also refreshing. I liked it a lot. Thanks to rougeau13 for the trade!

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 19, 2012
750 ml bottle. Clear medium yellow body at the first pour, with a huge, frothy/fizzy, lightly lacing, mostly lasting, white head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs, apricot), lightly to moderately yeasty (earth, barnyard), with notes of perfume and hay. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. LIght to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, dry and average length finish with about medium bitterness. It’s got some potential, already expressed in the aroma, but not in the other aspects. Overly mild flavor, and kinda thin and light bodied. After each sip I keep getting a light lemony soap/detergent impression, which I’m not properly into. Overall absolutely not bad, however.
