COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
starting with a base of German wheat & pale malts this crisp slightly hazy foundation was then accented with a blend of Sterling & Citra hops providing a intricate blend of herbal grass & tangerine citrus flavors and aroma. to pull this all together and to complete the ’cleansing’ aspect of my vision i gently finished the ale off with a touch of white sage, lending a mild earthy spice character to the blend. of course let’s not forget our house saison yeast that brought all the elements together leaving a dry yet intricate finish.

It doesn’t get much more earthy than this. This brewer has balls and imagination. I can think of so many places, situations and pairings where this beer would be magnificent. It’s really a crime to drink this beer alone and not paired with anything. The sage is brilliant. Gourmet. I would like a little richer body. Truly artistic.

Wit? - more like a saison - hugely carbonated, fizzy pour - hazy golden - dry aroma and dusty yeast, strong sage, toasted wheat, wildflowers, mild phenols - dry up front, with strong wheat, moderate phenols - a little sweet on the tail end - sage, peppery character, orange and other citrus - cobweb - chewy yeast - good, but a bit too sweet on the end for my taste.

arminjewell (6094) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Bottle thanks to Brandon, slightly over gushed but nice slightly hazy orange yellow pour with white head, aroma has lots of sage, grass, tangerine, pear, lots of apricot. Really nice and fruity. Taste is nice sage, some pine, grass, touch of tangerine, apricot, some nice yeasty notes, touch of biscuit, with a slightly sweet finish. Would be nice to be a bit drier, but overall tasty.

Bomber.

Very glad that the guys have hit Washington state. Distinctive house yeast recalls the Stateside Saison; sage is forward in what is a rich and hearty rather than light and refreshing witbier.

jrob21 (2485) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Pours a cloudy, light yellow with a froth white head. Aroma is intensely herbal with a slight spice working in the background. Nice effervescent and a decent body. The citrus flavor is very slight and unusual for a white. Expect a little more of that in this style but I actually prefer the muted aspect better. The finish is a touch bitter on the back of the palate. Nice body and malt profile. Pretty enjoyable summer drink.

blankboy (5972) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2011
Draught at Hoppy Loft, Brussels. Pours a very cloudy yellow with a small diminishing white head. Nice aroma, sweet, with light hops first followed by yeast, herbs, grain and some spices. Flavour of citrus fruit, hops, herbs, spices and a decent bitter tart finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good, enjoyable.
