Growler from Chadds Ford location. Pours a hazy perfectly clear filtered golden like a very light pilsner- good nice high carbonation- with a massive fluffy white head that lasts and leaves a slight cloud floating in the center of the beer towards the end. Aroma is highly hopped with floral and earthy hops- almost a hint of citrus as well, lots of doughy wheat- pils malts, hint of sulfur in the middle from the yeast, also a nice dupont- sea-spray, saltiness and medium phenols. Flavor is phenolic yeasty, skewed to the dupont side but has a slight westmalle fruity hint but under control- phenols turn to a fruity bubblegum in the middle, great bready doughy malt throughout. Great body with a crisp light citusy lemon zest in the end. Great Saison.

Growler shared by Dickinsonbeer. A solid effort here. Beautiful pour, huge and lovely head. Super dry aroma, hay and lemon notes, some grainy/wheat characteristics. Lightly bitter, milky flavor, prickly carbonation with a rich, minerally body. A touch of sugars show up from time to time. Quite floral, dry and complex, reminiscent of the Dupont beers. I wish more brewers could nail the style like this.

Growler shared by dickensonbeer. Pours very, very pour... one of the palest beers I’ve ever seen. Big sticky white head. Aroma is just lovely. Soft spiciness with a fresh pils maltiness and a touch of lemony citrus. Softly herbal on the nose as well. Fruity and fresh. Flavour is very lean and light. Crisp and fresh with loads of yeasty spice and a light dustiness as well. This is a very tasty brew... one of the best US-brewed saisons I’ve had in a very long time.
