22oz bottle thanks to photomike. Hazy gold-orange with a huge lasting head. This sucker was pretty damn carbonated for a bomber. The aroma is a nice mix of fresh hops and spicy yeast with spiced orange and lemon character. There is also an underlying cracker-like maltiness that leans on a bready base, but doesnt fully get there. The mouthfeel is big on this one (in an importance sense) with lots of carbonation aiding in a very dry feel, with the bubbles scraping any residual sugar right off of your tongue. Peppery yeast notes and lemon peel fruitiness. Medium bitterness with a good amount of hop flavor. Light in body and obviously airy but after awhile, the carbonation mellows out, leaving a smother feel and an actual dryness from a nice low finishing gravity, carbonation notwithstanding. A nice beer, and quite drinkable.

On tap at Rattle N Hum. Strong aromas, with white pepper. Cloudy white head and white lace. Good bitterness edge to it. Unique saison, very American and bold spice.

22oz. bottle, Oct 2009, batch 9, with thanks to Beastiefan2k. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a moderate white head. Aroma is peppery, with more spice and a nice citrus bite. Flavor is also peppery, with more spice a less citrus. A nice saison, thanks for sharing Eugene.

Haslinger (866) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2010
22 ounce bottle. Pours a nice hazy orange with a frothy head. The nose is a nice spicy citrus mix with a hint of hops. Very mild spice in the initial taste. This beer is very easy to drink. I could drink this all afternoon

RobChase (7) - Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2010 does not count
Color is a honey-gold hue. Nose is subtle, laden with spicy ginger, and a touch of banana. Subtle toasty notes as well. Mouthfeel is gorgeous, with a surprisingly rich and creamy body. It drops off a bit sooner than I would like however. Gingerbread, clove and a bit of spice on the palate, with a nice dry finish. Though the creamy body tapers off early, the flavors linger substantially longer.

BrooHa (120) - New York, USA - JAN 24, 2010
(from notebook. drank 1/21/2010) Rich, copper hue with big, pillowy head. Creamy-looking. Yeasty, mildly peppery smell. A litle funky and barnyardy but nice. Sharp on tongue and drier than I expected. Finishes very dry, almost astringent. Paired with pan-seared scallops. Not earth-shattering but a very nice saison. Worth stocking up on.

On tap at Rattle-N-Hum in NYC. Pours golden in color with a dusty white head. Smells of white pepper and yeast. tastes of each with added notes of bitter hops and lemon zest. Nice.

Bottle via trade. Pours a somewhat hazy golden color with a creamy lasting white head and excellent lacing. Aroma is very peppery with funk and bready pale malt. Flavor is great, yeasty and peppery, with pale malt and floral hops. Medium-light bodied with medium-high carbonation and long finish. Drinkability is high, as this beer keeps you wanting more. This was my first Pretty Things beer, and is an absolute winner.

Bottle, thanks Jeff. Dark golden pour with white head. Wheaty, spices, citrus, and pine aroma and flavor but its slightly a mess.
