Just arrived at Liquor Shed in Casper. Okay, a big pop and super gush when I removed the cap. Beer everywhere. It pours a rusty murky colour with a 1 finger head of foam. Nice lacing. A strong spicy nose of coriander, clove, bubblegum. Yeast. A very perfumey nose overall. Everything in the smell is in the taste as well as a strong bitter/tartness of lemon zest and apples, It finishes bitter and tart. Long aftertaste. On the low end of medium bodied, the carbonation, well, it’s healthy to say the least. Other than the huge gush, this was very enjoyable.

Een lekkere saison zoals het hoort te zijn. Ik vond het lekker maar drink dan ook wel eens graag een saison

Draught. Golden cloudy orange pour with a medium off white frothy head. Aroma of tangerines, hay, yeast and barnyard funk. Medium to full bodied with a puckering slightly sour finish.

Gusher. Pours a rich orange golden color with three fingers of fizzy white foam. Nose is interesting, some trace acetone with layers of citrus pith, grapefruit juice, musty hay, rotten tangerines. The palate follows the weirdness of the nose but settles into a citrus forward tangerine juice and musty old hay. Actually there are parts of this beer I really enjoy but there is a small part of it that I despise. At the $8.99 price point I think Ill grab a few more and continue this expedition into Saison de Pipaix.

Tasty saison. Has the usual notes of dry grass and hops, but also has a light taste of pepper. Good.

Draught > Mikkeler Bar. Just as it says. Dry and black pepper spicy. This is good. Lots of orange on the nose. Refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (750 ml) @ Bier Circus. Hazy bright golden/copper with a medium mostly lasting white head and little lacing. Aroma is of orange peel, ginger, grassy notes, molasses, spices and earthy/mineral notes. Taste is slightly sweet and moderately acidic with orange peel, ginger, earthy presence, caramel/molasses and light grass. Medium body, though it’s a bit thin at times. Low carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Quenching and quite tasty. Very interesting to try and really different from usual actual Saison.

AROMA of bitter chocolate, like mint chocolate. Spices like pepper, fresh and fruity. APPEARANCE is a cloudy orange with nothing special. Foam didn’t last and carbonation was just alright. TASTE is interesting with agrumes (orange), peach and spices. lots of spices. PALATE doesn’t last long. some light acidity. OVERALL a good Saison with interesting spice additions but some aspect where not really well managed. Poured from 33cl bottle from fridge in Teku glass.
