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

keepersj12 (3019) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2013
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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Gold pour, white head, excellent retention/lace. Aroma of bubblegum, fruity ester, citrus/floral hops, lemon zest, grain. Taste is bitter, floral/citrus hop, spicy yeast, lemon peel. Palate is average carbonation, a bit oily, bitter finish. More IPA than saison.
