Can. Brilliant gold with a coarse white head. Bold spicy yeast aroma with a hint of fruit and old books found in the basement. Citrusy sweet flavor that fades to a dry peppery spiciness with some coriander and then a little sweetness comes back at the end. Seems as if it should be so drinkable and yet I donít find that to be true. Oh well, a beer can be well made and still not be for everyone.

ARH (830) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2015 16oz can poured into a Belgian tulip. The aroma is floral with bread notes, apricot and peach notes, as well as a peppery and woody spice and a bit of a muffin dough. The hue is a clear, effervescent yellow-brown with a white, thin sudsy head that has ok retention and very little lace. The taste is a medium bitter and sweet (perhaps a touch more bitter than sweet), with a light sour touch. The texture is slick and waxy, but on the thin side, with a light fuzz and a medium light body that has notes of dough, underripe stone fruit, bitter citrus, and a touch of a peppery spice that strengthens at the finish which is crisp, with a pepper zip, and is dry and somewhat astringent and a bit wooy. The aftertaste is moderate with a burnt bread crust quality, dough, and pepper, which mellows, but lingers.

From can into glass. Golden honey color with white head that dissapated quickly. Fruity, floral, spicy, and yeasty aroma and taste. Finishes rich and sweet with a hint of honey. A good beer

Poured from the tall boy can, an orangy looking cloudy glass of beer. Before I looked at the commercial description on here I thought it tasted very European. If there was such a thing as rate beer in the 90ís when I was in Europe Iíd have hundreds more ratings, now I just donít remember them all. This beer would have been something enjoyed perhaps on a park bench, admiring girls walking by with arm pit hair, smelling of strong perfume, talking broken english, and I loved every minute of it. Thanks for the memories.

justsayswell (172) - Mission, Kansas, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Pours a beautiful straw/ gold with a faint white head. Nose is white pepper and dry lemon zest. Mouthfeel is pretty creamy and soft. Belgian yeast is pretty evident. More peppery notes, peach, bit of banana from the yeast, a little crackery malt. Tiny bit of grassy hops. Finishes pretty dry. Not usually a saison fan but this one is drinkable.
