750 ml bottle shared with Tom and chums. Pours an opaque yellowish orange with a resilient white head. Aroma is floral, oldish, grains, grapefruits. Flavor is peach, pear, fresh cereals. Finish is floral,oldish, barn, with a good, hoppy punch (grapefruit). Lingering dusty-oldish flavor from what I believe to be the yeast. Light body, medium to strong carbonation. Very good saison.
