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.

Wow! Fabulous beer! Look out Belgium!! This is right up there with the best. Poured with a foamy, frothy, off white head that lasts and good lace. Color is a hazy amber. Aroma is a pungent blend of yeast, malt, fruit, grass, earth, and fresh cut hay. Flavor is similar with the carbonic acid, yeast bitterness, and malty sweetness prominant. Body is perfect for this beer. Finish has the more extreme qualities dropping off quick and the more balanced and milder qualities with a slower taper to a medium length. Wow AWESOME BEER

Poured draft into flight glass. Slightly hazy, golden straw in color. Sage aroma hits the nose & palate coming across with strong floral notes, but nicely balanced. Perfect carbonation, refreshing & lovely.

Bottle from DaSilky1. A slow pour produces a huge fluffy head that sits atop a golden body the whole way through. The aroma is really quite hoppy for a Saison with florals, citrus, yeast, and a bit of a barnyard funky scent. The flavors are spicy but very delicate. Citrusy hops with lots of herbal notes; sage, lavender, and clove, along with light grass, and spring flowers. Man, this stuff just flows along without any effort at all. In a way, this reminds me of Boulevard Tank 7 (a good beer) but not as aggressively hopped and far more clean and delicate. This is an incredible beer, I might be ISO another bottle already. There’s more I probably should be saying but I just put the pen and paper away and sat back and enjoyed every last sip of this stuff. The sign of a true masterpiece.

Very delicious sweet balance. Aroma is sweet, malty, a hint oranges and pepper. Medium nice carbonation, very light and dry mouthfeel with fine some creaminess. Flavour has lots of white pepper, sweet crisp malts, thyme, some roses.

(Bottle) Pours hazy dark yellow with a white head. The aroma holds soft sweet citrus (tangerine, lemon and lime), coriander/spices, cracker-like malt, light phenols and incense. Undertones of wheat, wet grass, wet asphalt, clove, white pepper, salvia, mint, lavender, matchstick, earth (maybe barnyard), dust and flower shop. The nose is perfect in balance. A light touch of yellow fruit/pineapple and pear esters as the beer gets warmer. Super dirty in a rather clean way. The flavor is dusty dry, light bitter and light acidic. Tones of flowers, herbs, spices, citrus, subtle fruits, crackers, dust, wet stone and light incense smoke. The mouthfeel is clean, dusty and soft with a medium crisp carbonation. The finish holds numbing spices, dust, wheat, yeast, fancy hops, tangerines and crackers. Medium bodied. For me this beer is a perfect symbol of what is wrong with the ratebeer community - a fantastic beer without the epithet Imp o Barrel-whatever will never be an evergreen on the top 50 list (let him who is without sin cast the first stone). Anyhow, as the kids say: OMG! just as ass kicking as a good white whine.

It doesn’t get much more earthy than this. This brewer has balls and imagination. I can think of so many places, situations and pairings where this beer would be magnificent. It’s really a crime to drink this beer alone and not paired with anything. The sage is brilliant. Gourmet. I would like a little richer body. Truly artistic.

Poured from bottle. Aroma smells flowery and yeasty, very much like a tripel. Pours pale to almost deep gold with thick head and great retention. Taste starts off sweet and tart like a heffweizen, then starts to mellow and then finishes bitter like a pale ale. It also leaves a spicy lingering aftertaste. I'm very pleased with the nice blend of styles and taste. Palate is thicker, you can tell there is some wheat proteins in this. Cool name, cool art, very cool beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Citrus notes, orange peel, lots of esters, fruity and assertive hop aroma. Spicey nose. Hazy honey gold color with a trace of foam/head. Tangy, tart, fruity flavor with a good malt backbone and plenty of bitterness, especially towards the finish and in the aftertaste. Nice apice flavors, in good balance.
