COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American hopped saison.

Editor’s note: The 2009+ versions are spiked with Brett at bottling. Bottles from 2009 are marked as such, although 2010 and 2011 bottles appear to not note the vintage on the label, but might be printed on the neck or base.

NeuroPliny (242) - Calgary, Alberta, - MAR 24, 2013
On tap at lost Abbey. Pours clear yellow with a medium head that fades to fine lace. Light fruit aroma on a background of subtle spice with orange peel coming through in particular. They say it is slightly fruity and that the brettanomyces yeast (aka Brett) gives it some funk and I certainly concur. Meady yet spicy. Awesome American saison.

It pours pale gold with a full white, long lasting head. It has a slight haze to it with Belgian lace as the head recedes. It has high citrus aromas with moderate earthly elements. It is moderately spicy with pepper. It has flavors highlight by high fruit flavors with citrus and orange. There is also a moderate blend of earthen flavors, spice, and pepper. There is a low sour element as well. The complex flavors work well together. It has high carbonation and a moderate feel. There is a low sour and bitter finish that is dry. Overall, this is a very complex blend of aromas and flavors in an ale highlight by citrus and yeast.

An extra pop of bitterness for a saison. Wildly complex with notes of Citrus, pine, banana, pear...fruity booze nose. Some grapefruit. One of the better saisons I’ve had lately.
