Very pale golden yellow, enormous puffy rocky white foam that takes forever and a day to settle out. Aroma is fruity, light corn, grainy, and a slight brett dryness. Taste is sweeter, light florals and fruit, biscuity, if I sip the foam I get that Orval type brett must, but in the liquid I only get light pineapple. This is so good I just wish they left the ’Post Prohibition’ descriptor out because this isn’t a Pilsner, it is a light Belgian ale or saison.

Bottle, 03/04/2012. Pours dull opaque copper, impressive head that leaves sudsy, sticky lacing. Aroma thick with yeast and brett, wisp of white fruits, base of spicy toasted malts. Taste is herbal spiciness, yeast, bright pale malts with subtle lemon, bitter dry finish and aftertaste. Nice, clean ale with plenty of character for the low ABV.

Bottle picked up at SL.. Light orange, almost yellow color, good head. Nose is slight tart notes... some spices, and light malt. Taste is light tartness, lots of carbonation, flowers, spices, crystal malt. No traces of brett??? Lots of the pilsner taste. Tons of flavor for a beer thats only 4.5 percent. Overall: Nice saison..

750, capped. Pours a cloudy bright pale gold with a sudsy white head that sticks around for a while, leaving strings of drippy lace. Big bright fruity nose, showing mangoes and tangerines. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty, nutty, fruity mid palate, surprisingly interesting and appealing. Mild minerally finish. Good beer.

Sampled on 2/14/2012 at Beer Revolution. This saison pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, cereal and yeasty. A medium bodied saison. The malts are fruity and sweet, cereal and yeasty. The hops are herbal and spicy. Lively carbonation. Nice balance. A touch dry and funky, with some yeastiness. Not sure if the corn and rice go well with the brett. It’s a weird combination and I’m not sure if it works well. Will need to do some more research. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is cleanand smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Hazy light orange-yellow pour. A touch of clove and banana on the nose. Chalky bretty flavor. Very dry, bitter hoppy finish. Really easy drinking but I found the chalkiness a bit too much. Overall a nice drinkiable beer though.

3oz pour is a hazy gold with a creamy white head. Nose is mild, floral, lightly grassy. Flavor is sweet, bitter, grassy, lemons. You could drink a million of these. Medium bodied, smooth and super drinkable.
