On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY - 2013 version. Smooth, dry, slightly hoppy. Sweeter and less peppery than I was expecting. Not much in the way of carbonation.

2013 Bottle. Pale cloudy with a ton of bright white head. Just a slight detection of dry hopping for me - still a great saison though

Excellent beer. Pours a hazy orange with a big fluffy white head. The aroma has flowers, fruit, very summery. The flavor has the fruit and a bit of sweetness but is well balanced with peppery hops. Finishes dry and clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
