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.

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.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2011
Draft. A hazy golden beer with a thin lazing white head. The aroma has notes of spices, flowers, malt, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, yeast, straw, minerals, and flowers, leading to a dry finish.

thornecb (4697) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Pours deep gold into a tulip. Off-white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Citrus and wheat aromas. Dry and crisp with upfront sweet lemon turning to a tropical fruit finish.

Defreni (2754) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2011
Fad: Orangegul uklar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er umiskendelig saison men med en god del appelsin smidt oveni hatten. Smagen er igen domineret af appelsin hvilket er udmærket, men i længden bliver det en smule en dimensionelt. Udmærket øl.

Sampled at the Stillwater tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits last month. Pours a clear gold with a thick white head. Malty nose with herbal sage, some almost honey sweetness and crisp noble hops. Sweet malt flavor with hints of banana and sage before a crisp, clean finish.
