500 ml bottle purchased from Blackwell’s. Pours a hazy light straw color with a thin white lasting head. Aroma is perfect saison complexity: hay, yeast, funk and lemon citrus. Flavor is tart lemon citrus, wheat and grass notes, Belgian yeast. A solid, delicious representative example of the saison style.

Really pleasant beer. Hides the big alcohol well. Lots of juicy fruit (lemon, peach and pineapple) notes with spicy esters of white pepper. Bright and lively with a nice twang near the finish. Effervescent and dry. I like it more and more with every sip.

Very odd palest pink to eggshell grey with a thin ringed head. Full on peachy funk, watery sweet tropical juice overall. Rich tangy peach and peeled citrus. Tangy Oak chewy light wood thread. Finishes dry and tinselly. Very refreshing for the ABV
