This beer pours a slightly cloudy straw color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to a wispy film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hay, fruit and yeast. Light-bodied with flavors of peppercorn, yeast and citrus. The finish is dry with a peppery yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle. Shared by James with Sean and me during the Eagles - Cowboys game. Pours turbid, pale whitish yellow with a tuft of creamy head. Aroma of golden raisin, honey, and Belgian spice. Clean and light with some hay and dry, almost chalky spice. Not much sweetness, which I kind of like. Solid saison.
