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.

Interesting mix of flavors. The white sage adds a definite herbal quality to it, a bit like juniper but dryer. Quite effervescent, pale yellow pour.

Dashimus (227) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2012
Cask. Pours as a misty medium yellow with an initially large white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is very herbie with obvious sage and some Rosemary. Other floral smells are subtle. Taste is very clean and fresh with dominating sage. Long dry finish.

Slubgob (296) - West Hartford, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Puts golden yellow out of the bottle.crisp nose with prominent citrus and grapefruit. Fine carbonation makes for a bright white head and great mouthful. Crisp in the mouth with more grapefruit and citrus flavors, lightly hoped. A bit more yay comes in at the finish.a fantastic summer drink!

FROTHINGSLOSH (6457) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a vibrant golden color with a large creamy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was table sugar, candied golden fruits and a yeasty presence. The flavor was tangy sugar, candied golden fruits, bread and a bit of must. The finish turned somewhat dry with lingering table sugar and golden fruits. Fairly full bodied. Reminded me of a maibock. Ok.

brnandersen (3168) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2012
Sample from tap, CBC 2012. Hazy orange-golden colour with a white head. Lots of sage in the spicy aroma. Also pepper and fruity hops, yeasts. Some lemon and pear notes. Light sweet taste with a herbal and earthy accent. Medium body with a slick texture. Finished long lasting with sage and a subdued citrus finish. Excellent interpretation of the Belgian wit.

Ron (3466) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 30, 2012
On tap at Tap and Mallet. Pours dark yellow with a huge foamy head that disappears quickly. Aroma has notes of fruits, orange, citrus, spices, hops and coriander. Taste is quite fruity and malty with some notes of orange and citrusy hops. Smooth, full bodied and fruity finish. Nice fruity and hoppy wit.

hopasaurus_rex (109) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2012
Pours a hazy golden orange. With a nice foamy head. Aromas of lime, Belgian yeast, floral, a subtle sage aroma, slight funk and a slight citrus. Initial taste is smooth and creamy. I get a big key lime flavor up front. Yeasty, floral, Belgian-esque. Lemon, citrus, slightly tropical flavor and a subtle herbal flavor. Unbelievably complex. Amazing. Mouhfeel is slightly sticky. This is an awesome beer. A must try.
