On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy yellow with very small white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, pears, apples, white grapes, oranges, honey, some hay or straw, yeast. Flavor is a big yeasty sweetness, lots if pear and apple flavor, ever so slight spice, maybe coriander? This is a big time fruity Saison and is closer to a sweet Wit or Tripel than a musty Saison. Definitely unique with the sweetness. Full bodied, especially for the style, and medium carbonation. Overall a very nice brew on the sweet side of the style.

hazy orange pour. Nose is sweet but very spicy! Taste is effervescent with citrus and lots of spiciness, almost overpowering. I sense some Brett but I don’t think this is hte brett version. I taste quite a bit of alcohol but overall, pretty good.

On tap at Kickback’s, JAX. I’d heard about this one for several years, and was glad to sample it fresh. Cloudy deep gold pour, nice firm head and attractive lacing. Funky, yeasty, and just a touch spicy in the nose. Flavors are slightly more complex, if still in that basic zone. There’s more bright citrus, some grassy notes, a touch of sweet candy here and there amidst the overall yeasty, lightly funky beer. Pretty enjoyable.

Shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.
The beer is clear and sunshine yellow with a small white head. The aroma brings wine, flowers, grass, wheat, dandelions, yeast. The flavor offers pleasant spice character with delicious saison yeast characteristics. Light bodied and smooth on the palate. Nice honey taste with white grapes. White grape juice with mild sweetness. Very tasty.
