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.

LIght refreshing saison, the sage is really what makes this beer spectacular, it is perfectly balanced into the brew, adding dimensionality to the hop profile.

Bottle. Poured clear golden color with an average fizzy frothy white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to herbal, yeast and citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy herbal bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex drinkable beer.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2011
On tap. Hazy golden with a white head. The nose is citrusy but also slightly spicy - perfumy kinda. The body is surprisingly light, again citrusy and fresh with a slightly yeasty edge. Dry and lightly hoppy finish. Again a beer in perfect balance. 140311

Hazy golden amber, nice white head, great retention... Light tart apple, bready, clove, yeasty aroma... Light yeast, some spice, mild clove, pepper and light apple flavors... Not overly dry for a saison, medium bodied though drinks a little heavy with the yeast... Aroma has a fair amount of tartness that is not present in the flavor...

Shared by Tim. This was delicious, I really liked it. Did not record the batch, but probably relatively fresh. The pour looked beautiful with a big bountiful head, takes a while to fade. Gorgeous color as well, glowing yet not clear orange. Strong carbonation works well for another solid saison. And I just loved the sage complementing the hops, which were strong yet not aggressive. I could drink a whole damn bottle of this. Another hit for Brian.
