Poured bright gold, with a big, bubbly head. Aroma is summer fruits and dandelion. Taste is pineapple and orange peel with a grassy finish. Really liked the full palate on this one.

tripelthreat (186) - Soquel, California, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Bottle into goblet. Fine bubbled but short-lived head atop a hazy golden body. Some floaties stirred up in the bottle after the pour. Faintly sweet on the nose but the last remnants of a cold are hindering things. Soft and wheaty on the first sips. Initally dry, with some growing sweetness. Finishes with bitterness that becomes stronger and harsher further into the bottle. I was hoping for more classic funk but I don’t think it’s there. Nonetheless, a good effort.

Nice Saison. Finishes really dry. Lots of character from the yeast. Maybe a little high on the alcohol for me, but pretty reasonably hidden. Pours light orange with fluffy white head.

Had a 10 oz glass at the brewery in Royersford. They go on and on and on about the special yeasts they use, but I can’t see how this is better than any other belgian style ale. Great milky yellow appearance, fruity aroma, tastes of spices. I like it, but wouldn’t go mad for it.

750 ml. bottle. pours a gold with a small white head. Smells of lemon and yeast. Smooth on the tongue with a malt sweetness and a light bitterness. Light and crisp on the palate with a clean finish.
