Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer is orange with a thick white head. Lasting retention and plenty of lacing sticks to the walls of the tulip glass. The aroma offers herbal, floral, and tea notes. Tea and honey flavors, with a pleasant yeast character. Light and easy to drink. Complex and well balanced. Honey sweetness is balanced by tea and herbal notes, slightly dry. Overall, very enjoyable. An outstanding saison.

pours light yellow with nice white head. Nose is fresh cut grass and some floral notes. Very much a summer time beer with the taste- grass light airy citra and quick clean finish. The flower added did’nt corespond with the base beer on the mouth-left a too dry acrid aftertaste.

Bottle at home, all for myself. Pour is a glowing, golden honey color with a huge, frothy white head, that seems to want to stick around for quite a while. Really nice sticky lacing on the rim of my Dry Dock tulip. Floral hops, band-aid, herbs, medicinal characteristics, honey, hay, and fresh cut grass in the aroma. Taste is herbal and medicinal, balanced nicely with light spice and floral notes; nice band-aid, straw, and earthy notes on the backed. Medium body with high carbonation. A ton of flavor in this beer and it is highly sessionable. Nice Saison!

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow/brown with full head. Aromas of yeast, pineapple, and white pepper with underlying funky floral notes. Definite floral flavors (can’t say what yarrow and calendula taste like) along with yeast, peaches, and lemons. Nice.

750. Pours a light slightly hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is really nice floral spicy, some honey and herbal notes, orange light citrus. Flavor starts sweet with lots of floral notes, slowly giving way to the spice and northwestern hop character into a dry and lightly bitter finish. Medium body and sharp carbonation. Excellent beer

Tasted on 9/30/12 from a capped 750mL bottle picked up in Oregon by unclejedi, thanks to Jim. Pours clear orange with a very thick white head that slowly recedes to smooth, average lace. The nose is spicy saison yeast with some light bread malt, a green hoppy note that I recognize, and a somewhat herbal note that I don’t. The flavor is the same, nice and spicy saison yeast, plenty dry, and the herbal note with a nice touch of sourness on the back end and a hint of white peppercorn. The body is light with sparkling active carbonation and a long spicy yeast and lightly sour finish.
