Fresh light tasty house beer. Some would say girly but has enough complexity to satisfy you. Spicy orange lemon wheat. Mild hops and faint tartness. Soft palate. Rustic Belgian ale. Nice.

wchesser (1534) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Cloudy yellow. Lots of ripe banana and tropical fruit on nose along with light spice. Taste follows with a slightly tart finish. Terrific domestic saison. Could crush this on a hot summers day.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2013 Half pour at the brewery poured into an extra clean snifter glass. Nice hazy golden color with deeper orange colors shining through the sunlight. Good 2 finger sized head that sticks around for a majority of the drink. Nice nose of biscuit, clove, banana like esters, pepper and yeast Very faint hints of zesty hops and some stone fruit (pears?). Flavor follows the aroma with a nice full body and soft carbonation. Very flavorful, with a touch of pudding like sweetness. A hefty and simple beer, a little dry but not like most fully attenuated Saisons. I still enjoyed it, but I tend to prefer Saisons with a more dry finish and more bitterness. Great house beer and it very much improves with the addition of bugs (Saison Bernice) and barrel treatments (barrel aged Anais).

On draught at the brewery. Moderate (balanced) spice on the nose with lemon and cracker. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with full true white head of small bubbles that lingers and leaves great lacing. Strong spice and lemon continue in flavor with a chewy yeast and quick semi-dry finish. Sweet grain lingers long on he lips. Outstanding!

Tap. Pours hazy golden amber with a small white head and nice lacing. Aroma is lemon, yeast, banana, spices. Flavor is the same, very hefeweizenlike, actually, lightly sweet with a light zesty astringence. Light body, fine bubbly carbonation. Good, but not great.
