Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a huge, frothy, white head. Terrific retention. Spicy, breadsy nose with banana, pale and fuzzy fruit esters, coriander phenol and dough. Sweet, fruity flavor up front, then gently bitter, slightly pungent and spicy on the backside. Medium-bodied and creamy with fizzy carbonation. Finishes a touch tangy then fairly dry. Without the cage, my bottle would’ve opened itself. Feisty!

Tap at CK thanks to craftycarl21! Good foam. Sweet pear nose. Estery, bright, mild diaper phenols. Taste is juicy, clean pear. Nice dough and honey bread. Very good. Sweeter saison, could use more hop balance. Still, pretty nice.

Bottle shared by Kyle at the Winter Solstice. Poured a pale gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of floral and fruit with a backing yeast and grain note. Flavor was similar with floral, fruit and sweet grain coming through with a bit of soap in the finish.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy bright golden colour with a thick pillowy white head. Sweet spicy/yeasty aroma with a touch of sweatiness underneath it. Earthy and dusty. Coriander spiciness, orange peel and apple skins all make an appearance here. Spicy wheatiness that is particularly appealing. Flavour is fantastically dry with a spicy yeastiness underlying a soft flowery and wheaty flavour. A bit of lingering hop flavour makes its presence known as the temperature comes up a bit. Light lime citrus and green peppercorns all contribute to making this one of the tastiest saisons I’ve come across. Gorgeous brew.
