COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Saison is a marriage of Belgian subtlety and big American style hopping. We dry hopped this saison with Centennial El dorado and Pacific Gem hops creating a spicy and floral hop flavor.

The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Dry finish. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Taste of of citrus and light grapefruit. Nicely nuanced. Thanks for sharing, wnoble.

Cloudy golden pour with a foamy white head. Nose shows nice fruuty hops with some tropical notes and a pleasantly sweet character. Light grain and grassy notes show in the flavor. Very nice.

At brew pub. Good aroma. Sweet yeasty. Pineapple. Coriander. Real nice blend. Hazed golden orange color. Good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body creamy smooth mouth feel. Bitterish finish. Very nice. Good mix on hops and yeast. Very tasty. Aroma is wonderful. Flavor just a tad more yeasty. Winner for sure.

phaleslu (6502) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Draft at Wicked Weed. Pours a hazy pale gold with a small white head that leaves lace in the glass and a thin film atop the beer. Funky, with notes of wheat, citrus fruits, bready malts, soap, tropical fruits, and florals. Light-medium bodied, with a faintly funky, mouthfeel with moderate soft carbonation. Very good saison.

>> Pours a full haze, cloudy peach with excellent white foam. Nose has some funk, dank hops, pretty tropical, mild phenols/plastic. Taste is juicy, peach, apricot. Palate is juicy, fresh, bright, lightly bitter. Really nice.

DrSilverworm (6370) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Taster on tap at Wicked Weed during RBWG. Almost entirely hazy orange golden color. Thin off-white head. Smooth, citrusy, grapefruity hop aroma. Good spicy hop / malt character. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry texture. Zesty sweet taste, kind of spicy. Some sugar sweet taste, a light bitterness. Solid, zesty, hoppy saison but for me it’s a bit spicy and citrusy zesty, kind of out of balance. Good still, though

RBWG14 Trip Rating #95. Draft at the downstairs taproom. Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a thin white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of herbal, floral, citrus hops, stone fruits, zest, pale malt. The taste is pale malt, spice, citrus hops, mild caramel. Medium bodied. 50th Wicked Weed rating!

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Tap at WW. By far the best saison offering at WW this weekend. The hops were helpful in balancing the sometimes out of balance yeasty esters and sorta watery character than many of these early incarnations of saison have had here. Light tropical fruit and citrus character from the hops, some earthy yeastiness, light grass, and hay.
