Draught Lemon yellow, hazy beer; fast gone white head. Spicy, yeasty, meaty esters, citruspeel, coriander. Lemon, coriander-ish, certainly held in check. Very light, thinnish with some wheatslickness. Light, not overspiced wit-saison.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2010 My Bottom Line:
Minty hops, straw-like wheat and subtle herbs swirl into a lightly tart finish for a quenching, humble Saison.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the cloudy blond.
-The body is very light and thus very drinkable.
-Citrusy fruitiness also increases drinkability.
-Every flavor is well integrated, yet few stand out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 capped bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours turbid bright gold with frothy well retained white head. Nose is wheaty and pale malty, with notes of florals, white peppery spice, hops, and mild yeasty funk. Tastes floral, a bit tart fruity, with some funky yeasty, white pepper and coriandert spice, hops, and a dry tart finish. Comes off like a Berliner weiss/saison hybrid.

A solid saison, it has a nice herbal character, not too sweet, refreshing for the summer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of sebletitje. Pours hazy deep gold with thin white head. The aroma is full with grains, honey, lemon acidity and herb-y spices as well as bits of wheat and yeast. The taste is effervescent across the palate punctuating notes like yeasty spices, lemon, graininess, herbaliness, mild tartness too, wheat and a thin layer of yeastiness. Darn tasty stuff.
