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.

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.

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.

blklab2007 (2066) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 22, 2011
bottle poured a nice golden in color with steady streaming carbonation and a cap of white head. aroma has sage, dusty yeast, pepper, and some grassy flowers. mouth feel is light and there is high side carbonation. flavor gets a bit barnyard, pepper, sage, hop pokes, fairly dry, and finishes with flowers and grass. nice and snappy but not too heavy on the herbs and it kept me interested the whole glass.

GTAEgeek (1385) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 15, 2011
750 mL bottle. Pours a clear, pale yellow color with a thick white head and no lacing. The aroma is lemons, green apples, hay, and a lot of yeasty funk. The flavor is fruity sweetness up front and through the middle, with a little bitterness and sourness in the finish. The palate is light, crisp, acidic, and clean through the finish. Overall, this is a wonderfully crafted and subtle beer. Very light and drinkable, yet complex.

DYCSoccer17 (3446) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 13, 2011
4 ounce sample on tap at the Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma has a fair amount of banana esters and a distinct dustiness. Fairly fruity. Body is a moderately hazy golden color with a smallish, off-yellow head. Starts spicy, dry, and quite carbonated. Very bubbly--champagne-esque. Becomes fruity with mild yeast dusty esters. Strong carbonation throughout. Fairly drinkable, but it would be more drinkable if the carbonation was toned down. The carbonation hides the flavors and creates a bit of a one-dimensional beer.

shoulderbroken (2475) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2015 Have deleted my previous rating as it was just all wrong. I much prefer this beer this time. Changing palate, I guess. Aroma is great, lightly spicy, belgian yeastiness, tropical and citrus fruit. Taste is great too. Yoghurt, orange, slightly medicinal (in a good way), tropical fruit. Very nice.
