Poured up on tap at the brewpub where thereís an opaque paper gold sort of body that supports a thin bright white head. The aroma is nice and yeasty and then it moves into spicy yeast notes mixed with malty esters that seem a tad banana like. The taste delivers big yeasty spice notes that get into some wheat malts and a pleasing grainy breadiness. I like this blend of flavors as it also has an edge of crispness and a pleasing balance.

Capped 2014 750 from the brewpub. Pours hazy orange gold with a white head. Aroma is citrus/earthy, even seems to hint at bretty. Med body or so. Flavor seems a little orange, goes for brett, then goes to a very nice fruity finish polished by some earthy/brett flavor. Very well done.

2011 bomber from the brewery. Pours cloudy apricot gold with a very foamy white head. Tastes like yeasty, bready sourness, light cheese flavor. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like creamy yeast, slightly sweet and slightly sour. Delicious.

beerbill (3531) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2013
On draught at the brewpub. Arrived a lightly hazed gold with a thin white head that lasted through the first two sips and left no lace. Pleasant aroma of fruity Belgian yeast. The flavor is mild malt and fruity Belgian yeast. Mild bitterness at the finish and dries out quite a bit at the end. Medium bodied.

The saison pours beautiful golden in color with an orange hue and decent white head. The aroma is my favorite part - big notes of smooth lemon and Belgian yeast, so pleasant in the nose. The flavor is similar, but more muted on the citrus with a dry, crisp finish. The saison yeast notes are welcomed.
