4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Save On. Bright hazy orange gold with small head and some lace. Lovely perfumy lemon pastry aroma -- one of my favorites. Wonder which hop/yeast that is. Mild pineapple mango fruity sweetness with assertive complex citrus/spicy/grassy bitter dry finish. Medium-light for abv. Effervescent. Probably should have a bigger head. Might be my new Worthy Kitchen glass. Excellent.

On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. Pours a nice clear golden yellow, pale white head. Listed as a saison but extremely boozy for the style...the Belgian Strong Ale style seems more apt. Heavy on the Belgian spice. Another nice American-Belgian from Stillwater.
