COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An homage to the monk’s noble work, this unique farmhouse ale is incredibly complex with notes of lemon, pepper, straw and herbs balanced by the tang of Mandarin oranges and a spicy kick of pepper. The Mandarin oranges used to make this beer were locally grown, including a portion grown on the grounds of the Abbey of New Clairvaux and picked by hand by the community of monks living there. We hope you enjoy this collaboration ale.

Orange/copper in color, a bit on the cloudy side. Citrus in aroma and well represented in taste. The slightest hop quality on the back end.

On tap at Dexters, porus a clear dark orange with an off white head, the aroma has some funk and yeast at first with a little bit of the orange and fruit coming through, the flavor has a strong spice front end with lots of the peppercorn in the finish, the fruit is kind of dominated, kind of meh for me.

Appearance: the beer is a darker shade of gold, cloudy, pours with a large beige head that settles into a moderate density Aroma: lemon, yeast, bread, some hints of sourness Taste: lemon, some light coriander, some bitterness as well, hides the alcohol very well, Palate: lively carbonation, lighter mouthfeel, slightly warm aftertaste Overall: this is a good saison, not great but good, I really like how the alcohol just shows itself as a warm aftertaste, pretty citrusy, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Indra (2682) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 5, 2014
12.7oz. bottle. Cellar aged for about 1 year. Malty, softly fruity and sweet aroma, with notes of doughy, lightly estery yeast, slight orange and lemon citrus, honey and dried herbs. Lightly hazy light amber in color with a lasting, fine, creamy head. Flavor profile is faintly peppery and spicy, suggestions of tropical fruit and citrus are present along with a honeyish, caramel malt sweetness and faint herbal hop flavor and bitterness in the background, particularly towards the finish, which shows a dash of clove late. Active and very lightly tart on the palate, a touch of warmth here as well and with a medium-full body. An interesting and tasty creation.

Bottle - Pours lightly hazy golden amber with a thin white head. Nose is spicy, with coriander, white pepper, sugary orange, sweet bread, and doughy yeast. Taste is sweet, sugary bread, doughy yeast, and a bit of spiciness and citrus. Just too sweet and sugary. Slick and fairly full-bodied with ample carbonation.
