Hazy orange-yellow pour with a thin white head. Intense fruity, almost raspberry aroma with lots floral and citrus notes. Dry grassy and herbal background. Berry and raisin on top with tropical fruit notes. Earthy hop finish. Another fine saison from Stateside.

On cask at Max’s May 4th. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a moderate white head. Aroma is yeasty, and herbal. Taste is dry and hoppy, with some bitter citrus notes. Finish has mildly tart blackberries, with some bitter hops.

Big fruity nose, whatever those crazy berries are, they smell delicous, touch of watermelon, hint of pumpkin, vinous notes. Taste is relatively dry, lightly bitter, more of the pumpkin, goji berries, white wine and oak. The nelsons seem to be completely at home in this treatment, but I like the Chamomile a bit better.
