TH28 (328) - - JAN 1, 2014
Appearance is cloudy pale golden with a thick creamy white foam cap. Aroma is typical farmhouse, with Belgian fruity esters of apricot and a distinctly earthy and herbal wild yeast aroma. Taste is sweet bready malt with a slight peppery bite and mild fruitiness. Mouthfeel is light and highly carbonated. Finishes dry with a tartness that lingers. Overall, a decent farmhouse but seems to be missing something. Also a slightly metallic taste, maybe from the chamomile? Very thin and mild tasting compared to other saisons

McNeillR (2134) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2016
Cool hazy light golden with a light puffy greyed head and rounded lacing. Nose is bright floral lime. Initial taste is a crisp light citrus lift, very firm carbonation though mouthfeel fades into a coppery bitter. Finishes bright, soft bready floral and lingers clammy lime again. Nicely rounded.

joeneugs (5269) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 19, 2016
750 ml. bottle. It pours a hazy orange color with a small, fizzy white head. The aroma has some herbs, toasted grains, light notes of apricot and light hints of soapy yeast. The flavor is really nice. Toasted grains and herbs up front followed by a pleasant apricot and pear fruit character. Light chamomile herbal quality in the finish that’s also solidly bitter. The carbonation is high and spot on for the style. The balance between the herbs, toasted grains and apricot/pear fruitiness is what makes this a great beer. I will be making this a regular purchase.
