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.

Scipio (653) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Pours a bright yellow with a huge and bubbly white head. Aroma has banana, belgian yeast, spices, peach, and grass. It has a Belgian impression. The taste is very dry and slightly sour. Still has a Belgian appeal here. The aftertaste is banana with plenty of spicy notes. The mouthful is very much like champagne, being bubbly, dry, and crisp. Carbonation is very fizzy. God stuff.

A subtle and bold version of a Belgian wit. Lots of head, it really had the perfect amount of fizz and bubbles. The description is accurate, the pale malts, citrus, wheat, hops and earthiness are all elements that almost seem like a saison, or an APA. Finish is dry, bitter, mild carbonation.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1347) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 18, 2014
On tap at the Stillwater at Dig Bar. Saison. It pours a clear deep gold with a thin filmy head that quickly dissipates. A huge sage aroma assaults your nose in a good way. The flavor is somewhat candy sweet with a funky saison character and tons of sage. Really interesting stuff.

Bill Becker (187) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - APR 5, 2014
It pours a hazy orange yellow with a fine 1" layer of foam. It smells spicy, of citrus hops with a strongish aroma of lemon zest. Lemon grass and I guess, that Sage are giving me big time citrusy bitterness and an earthy "feel" that I think is quite unusual but very tasty. It ends on the decidedly dry and still very bitter side. Yummy. Medium bodied with perhaps a tad too much carbonation but that’s a minor quibble. This surprised me, though the ratings are on the good to very good side on average. The surprising thing? Today is April 5, 2014. This bottle has a bottling date of April 23, 2013. Wow, that is nothing short of amazing!

Clear golden body, medium to thin white head, sparse lacing. Sage is undeniable as it hits you immediately after the cap is removed. Light citrus and peppery yeast follows. Medium to light bodied, lively carbonation, dry, yeasty finish.
