COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after a little blue butterfly found living on wild hops along the Front Range of Colorado. Delicate hint of banana and clove-like flavor, typical of a traditional saison, that flutter with a subtle spice character derived only from the hops used.

750 massively pressurized bottle, always nice when the cork pops itself- Pours very hazy golden with a huge head, three quarters of the glass at least was foam, slowly reduces leaving a ice cream like appearance. Aroma is strong in clove, pepper, yeasty, banana. Taste is exceptionally smooth, creamy, banana and clove up front, followed by a nice spicy peppery aftertaste, subtle sweetness rounds things out. Body is medium and carbonation is very bubbly and champagne like. Wonderful beer, perfect for a summer barbecue or a fancy dinner.

One of my favorite beers. As far as saisons go, this beer nails. Pours golden yellow with a slight cloudiness to it. Incredible floral and fruit scents. The taste is crisp and smooth.

onceblind (3965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Hazy dark straw under a lasting off white head. Aroma of straw, spicy yeast esters, a touch of perhaps saaz hops, citrus zest, and light clove. Palate was medium/full bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, dusty light mango, estery yeast, and light fruittiness with a crisp dry lingering spiced finish. Somewhat complex, but it didnít impress me as unique.

750 c&c from Bu11zeye. Opened with a huge bang - cork to ceiling - but no gush. Pours orange with a creamy white head. Aroma of fruit and hop. Flavor same with just the right amount of barnyard. Excellent.

Mora2000 (5568) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some yeast, biscuit malt, grass and pepper. The flavor is similar with some strong Belgian yeast character as well as some oranges, lemons and white pepper. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

jcr (2187) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Draft. Deep golden body. Frothy white head. Aroma of clove, spice, toasted grain, herbs, mustiness. Note of bubble gum. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Turning syrupy in the finish. Nice that itís not overly spicy, but itís way too sweet. Plus the peppery alcohol in the finish is distracting.
