Tap. Massive three finger cappuccino foam white head on a hazy light bright yellow orange. Spicy, peppery, floral and a tad yeasty in the aroma. Way too much spice in the flavor, white peppercorn, and a bit of grass. Lighter soft chalky body. Meh

aside from a peppery snap in the middle of the flavor, this wasnt particularly memorable. too much for up front piney hops to be a saison too. not a good example of the style.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy light golden with a white head. Light weight saison with flavors of lemon, pepper and water. Yes water. Very simple and light saison thatís not to bad but is a bit too on the watery side for this guy.
7-23-13: Tried this again and like it alot better. Yes it is lightweight and somewhat watery but for 4.5 really not bad and hitting the spot tonight. This time Iím getting alot of pear and clove notes. Same beer. Different day. Different beer.
