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.

Cloudy orange amber. Medium white head, lasting with lace. Herbal, floral, citrus, yeasty. Moderate bitterness. Semi-dry. A little dusty. I kept wanting it to be a little better..still good enough.

Pour is a hazy blonde with a large white head. Aroma is definitely some funky/fruity esters along with some clove. Flavor is at first a minor tartness followed by some citrus fruit and wheat malt. A little bit of the tartness shows up after the swallow. This probably not a saison, more of a Belgian golden ale because no real musty-funkiness is found in the flavor. Still this is a nice beer with a nice fresh fruitiness with just the right amount of tartness.

Bomber into a tulip glass. High carbonation and a fluffy feel to the beer. Good hops with the yeasty taste.

750ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a one inch white head that lasts. Taste is of wheat, yeast, spice, banana, grapefruit, fruit, clove and citrus. Similar aroma. Has a nice body with a spicy and fruity finish. Lots of carbonation. Drinkable and rather enjoyable.

On tap at the brewery, this pours deep honey with an ivory soap head. The nose is of hay, grain and estery silage. Flavors of esters and grains with a finishing hint of alcohol. Medium-full bodied, it's a full take on the saison. Nice job. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml from the Rare Beer Club - thanks, Nina! Very handsome medium orange pour, faintest cloudiness and an initially buoyant head that backs off to crisp carbonation and moderate lacing. Soft and sweet nose, dry and hoppy but with some modest orange and spice notes deepening the appeal. Modest tart note crops up every so often in the taste, giving this a bit of character and complexity. But it’s mostly a dry, fairly hoppy saison with modest spice. Delivers big-time on simple pleasures.

750 ml. caged and corked bottle. Pours cloudy amber color with a white head. Aromas of malt, yeast, wheat, hay and lemon. A little tart on the finish, but very refreshing.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2013 750. Somewhat faint aroma that has a hint of sourness. Hazy yellow body with plenty of carbonation. Lemon notes. Having this right after Lucid Silo saison. Very similar. This one has more lemon, more alcohol and perhaps more of an authentic Belgian flavor. Very good but struggling a little to determine if its worth 4x the cost of Lucid Silo. Quite carbonated.

On tap at independent ale house in rapid city. Pours a pretty straw colour. Lots of herbal and vegetal notes in this. Very interesting. Good.
