12 oz bottle. Poured w/1 in head of bright white foam...nice laces on my tulip glass. Slight saison haze, more amber than orange in colour. Nice Belgian funk on the nose...got a bit of banana as we'll. Very well-attenuated...fresh, effervescent. Typical spices/fruits on the tongue...some tart /sour as well. Excellent example of style.

Pear and banana nose, lemongrass. Fairly clear golden, thick lacy head. Full body, lacks carbonation, warm. Apricot and lemon. Grain husks on the back of the palate are actually not out of place. Drinks a bit heavy, not super refreshing, but enjoyable.

On draft, in a tulip at Woodberry Kitchen on my birthday! Golden amber with bubbly white head and strong lacing. A sweet fresh baked bread essence with orange marmalade and spice on the nose and palate... Easy to drink... Paired well with the crab pot. Very nice.

Bottle into tulip glass, slight hazy golden color with off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, bread, mild spices (mainly clove) and slightly metallic.

Light body, moderate carbonation, effervescent, crisp with slight yeasty finish. Decent sessionable saison.
