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 ícleansingí 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 letís not forget our house saison yeast that brought all the elements together leaving a dry yet intricate finish.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2010 750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Aroma of spice and fruit are noted. The appearance is very nice, with a gorgeous, cloudy, pale yellow color and a nice thick white head that sticks around for a while. The taste is very subtle and delicate, you do not want to drink this after a BIG beer, or you will totally miss the nuances. The flavors are of pear, apricot, funky barnyard, and some spice. The sage hits clean on the palate at the finish, and just right, not too overdone. Overall, this is a wonderful saison that will provide a clean finish with lots of subtle flavors. Pairs well with shrimp and scallops.

Really really enjoyed this Saison. As good as anything Iíve had besides Dupontís offerings. Huge nose and palate very balanced, drinkable body. nice sweetness throughout. Everything you want from a Saison.

nice saison, the sage is interesting and pleasant, some rough edges, but overall a very interesting and tasty brew. for some reason i am thinking that a lil age may actually smooth this one out. time shall tell!

750 thanks to jhenry04. Carbonation fills glass. Orange color. Wheaty with a tangy spicy taste. Little sour in there and some fruit. Very nice beer.

Bottle: Pours a hazy bronze amber with a pillowy froth of clumpy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with a big floral lavender and citrusy hop presence. Starts with pretty good fullness and finely-dissolved carbonation with a light malty sweetness and some light fruity esters well-balanced with a citrusy herbal hop character and a touch of sage spice before a drier crisp finish. A very nice saison that pairs well with food, but is capable of standing on its own.

tap at RnH - this one was hard to describe for me. Hazy yellow pour, herbal and spicey with nice light funk. Tasty... just hard to describe all the delicate spices that are going on.

On tap, Hawthornes. Pours a cloudy orangish gold with a small fizzy white head, lots of visible carbonation. The nose is herbal and spicy with a great yeast profile. Thereís some moderate hopping in there, but second fiddle to the yeast and herbal character. The flavor is really soft and showing a good deal of complexity without being overly complicated with too much in your face spicing. Herbal, floral, spicy, nicely dry with just the right yeastiness. Medium bodied with frothy fizzy carbonation. The herbs linger long and hard. Pretty nice, not a huge Saison fan in general, but this was unique and enjoyable.

Hazy golden honey color with a fluffy white head. Pear apple grape and sage aroma and taste with a semi-dry fruit and straw finish. Excellent.

OK, Iím letting you know right off the bat that this was good. Iíll recite some aromas, sure, then Iíll name a bunch of flavors, but that wonít really paint a picture of how much I enjoyed this stuff. Flowery, citrusy, herbal - see? totally inadequate. How sage and rosemary? yeah thatís in there too. Should I mentione a woodsy, oaky note, too? Like I said, just a list of flavors doesnít do it justice. Awesome stuff.

well i had to try this one it was on cask at thirsty monk. guess the best word would be herbal essence..not a sage fan in beer and it was quite strong. pale hazy yellow with thin head. this has to be a learned beer to enjoy
