COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by crisp white wines, Saison Blanc features New Zealand hops, golden raisins and white pepper for a decidedly bright, spicy, and robust low ABV beer. Finished with Brettanomyces at packaging, this beer will evolve for many more years to come.

12.7 oz corked and caged bottle. Aroma is doughy, peppery, sauvignon blanc, funk, dust, lemon, raisins. Pours hazy golden with a small collapsing white head. Taste is bittersweet, savory, dusty, yeasty, lightly tart; crisp and refreshing. Highly carbonated, medium body, slightly foamy mouthfeel; finish is hoppy and a little bitter. Nice Saison.

BelgianBeerGal (3224) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Bottle I accidentally bought in Tempe. I had to pry the cork out of the bottle for some reason. It was carbonated though. Cloudy yellow pour with a white foamy head. Big aroma of sour funk and green grapes plus a hint of spice. Earthy and sour flavor with some sweetness and pepper in the finish. Nice but maybe not worth the elevated cost.

drowland (6129) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2014
12/26/13. Bottle sent up by Homer321 for the QC tasting. Cloudy yellow orange pour with a nice khaki head that sticks and laces well. Nice funky aroma, barnyard, straw, hints of fruity sweetness and a spicy aspect. Nice flavor, dry, refreshing, good fruitiness, brett coming through nicely, more fruitiness. Digging it. Tasty!

ajnepple (2416) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Small bottle from Tipsy’s. Orange yellowish and opaque with a huge, lasting, white head. Aroma of pepper, herbs, yeast and fruit. Similar flavor adding white wine, light spice and light bitter hops with a dry and refreshing finish. Pretty average body with a crisp feel. Minmal brett characteristics, but still nice.
