Pale golden beer. Aroma of bubble gum, light clove and a nice crisp Belgian malt base. Very similar to the tripel, but a bit more minty and a more prominent spicy hoppiness. Lean and crisp with a bit of fruitiness. Some cherry and a light berryish character. Crisp and dry on the finish. Lovely.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly cloudy blonde body topped by a small white ring of foam. Shy nose. Light citrus flavour in a watery body with a lemon twist. A little floury yeast dries out the experience. The only interesting aspect of the beer was what seemed to be a decent dry-hopping giving the beer a distant farmhouse aroma and a pleasant juicy citrus flavour. Light, refreshing, not very flavourful and not very Saison to me. Well brewed but forgettable. Some beers get compliments for having the alcohol well hidden. In the case of Flatbread beers itís the alcohol percentage that is well hidden.

Tap served in a tulip at the brewpub - a fairly safe saison - slightly cloudy golden straw color - light floral, potpourri-ish aroma, with notes of lavender and some crisp, grassy hops - soft carbonation - somewhat grainy and quite dry and earthy, with notes of wildflowers and a touch of honey near the end - lacking the complexity and "umph" of better saisons, but tasty for the summer months.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Pours a clear golden. Nose is faintly spicy with mild citrus notes. Flavor is similar. No flaws and a good saison profile, but needed something extra to take it to the next level.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught pint at the brewpub, July 3 2007. Lightly hazy pale gold with a bit of lasting head, faint lacing....quite dry earthy, loamy and slightly herbal aroma, faint hints of orangepeel and honey.....body is quite dry, alcohol is apparent though appropriate for the weight (7% I think?), some mineralic and chalky/salty notes....alcohol comes out more at the finish; on the thin side. This is even drier and dustier than Paulís previous saison (Wilsonís Plover), more "summery" I suppose, but in this case the lighter body mostly accents the slightly overdone mineral notes. Still quite nice, all in all.

Tap at the Blind Tiger. Wheaty, floral, some farmhouse character and light brett. Kind of lactic, kind of sweetish, with bitter noble hops flavor and some spritzy cheap grapefruit juice. Not especially exciting.
