4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Got in a trade with cyde. 750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2013 vintage bottling. Pours moderately hazy bright golden straw color with a 1-2 finger foamy white head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin ring of lacing. Minimal lacing on the glass, and some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge peach, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, grape, lemon zest, orange zest, straw, floral, grass, pepper, clove, herbal, cracker, light honey, white wine, light funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome complexity of big tropical/citrus hop and yeast/brett ester notes with moderate malt balance; and great strength. Taste of big peach, pineapple, lemon zest, grape, passion fruit, clove, pepper, straw, grass, floral, herbal, cracker, light honey, white wine, light funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of fairly tart/earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of peach, pineapple, lemon zest, grape, passion fruit, clove, pepper, straw, grass, herbal, floral, white wine, cracker, light funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of hop, malt, and fruity/spicy yeast and brett flavors; with a good malt/spiciness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice saison style. All around good balance and complexity of hop, malt, and fruity/spicy yeast/brett ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
