A medium cloudy orange-yellow brew. Big frothy white head out of the bottle. Peppery-yeasty-bread-fruit aromas. Flavor is on the light side, but very interesting. Some fruit, some pepper, some citrus. Gets better toward the bottom of the bottle. Good yeasty backbone. Nice hop balance. A very tasty saison.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A really lovely session ale. Balanced and flavorful but faintly bitter, and very drinkable. I guess that is what every session ale should be.

Bottle, tasted 05/11/2012. First pour is brilliantly clear golden orange, big sudsy head and champagne bubbles welling up. Aroma is saison yeast and lightly sweet pale malts, spices, fruitiness and touch of vanilla. Taste mirrors the nose, with white fruit, pepper and other spices, dry yeasty finish. Crisp, sparkling palate. Well done saison, enjoyable.
