3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Beachwood and later at the brewery. Pours with a crystal clear, reddish tinted body with a white head. Aromas are floral, grainy, bready and estery. Peppery, strong chamomile, rose water, low phenols. Flavors are just south of overpowering chamomile tea (which I like, so it isnít an issue), bready, malty, low phenol, moderate ester. Lots of tea like qualities. Light tartness. Lively bubbles, dry. Good, but the spices are a touch strong.

8/18/13: Draft. Pink color with a fluffy creamy white head. Aroma is earthy, pressed fragrant flowers tea, cat pee, cotton balls. Flavor is a delicious mixture of peppery yeast and crisp tartness, over a soft-feel body. Fun and effective.

Aroma is mild on this beautifully red hued saison but the taste has a lovely herbal/fruit/tea quality that is very tasty and then becomes very dry. Quite the change from initial taste to the back of the palate.
