COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
flavor: With a mildly herbal nose to start, this German-hopped saison is a richly rounded experience of well-integrated flavors as soft malt notes are sparked by earthy hops that convey a subtle vegetal vibe not unlike parsnips or celery root in impression.
Composition: all German two row pilsner, Vienna and aroma malts and German Tettnanger Tettnang and Spalter Spalt whole flower hops

Leafs93 (1696) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Pours yellow with white head. Aroma was spicey pepper, florals and alcohol. For some reason the alcohol seemed to domnate the flavor profile. For a saison it just didnt work for me, it needs more flavor.

vtafro (3563) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2011

MrChopin (3347) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 23, 2011
transparent tan-amber, frothy white ring. Flavor a bit bubblegum sweet and overhopped. Grainy finish, lemon zest, light sweetness, marginally dry. Not bad, but too much victory, not dry enough or showing enough interplay with the yeast and grain.
