Thanks to Paul for bringing the growler! The beer is a perfect cloudy gold with a thick, strong, amazing white head. The aroma is beautifully spicy with strong pepper, clove, and coriander notes. Lots of funk in the nose as well, with some great grain and bread notes. The taste is also quite spicy but refined and balanced. There is a certain sweetness in the middle that is fantastic, and then it finishes nice and dry. The farmhouse is pleasant and strong but nicely balanced. Another killer beer.

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.

Pouring at BBF in Boston. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Soft lemon and musk, wheat. Medium-bodied musk, lemon and more wheat. Cool and faintly herbal, musk and yeast on the finish. Easy drinking and rather tasty.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 21, 2007
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 Paul’s previous saison (Wilson’s 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.

on tap at Flatbread. Almost clear golden/slightly hazy in color with a medium white head. Aroma of citrus, light banana esters, spicy and lightly bready yeast, pale malts. Taste is citrus and belgian yeast, lightly spicy with pale malt sweetness, a touch of honey, with a mild bittering finish. Not as complex as most saisons, could have been a touch drier, overall pretty nice though.

Draft at Blackback. Interesting beer thats a bit to clean for my tastes in saisons. The Citra adds a nice fresh citrus/dankness to the beer but the base saison is a little watery and bland. Still nice and drinkable.

puzzl (3252) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2009
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.

20080914 Tap at brewpub. Pale golden, mostly clear. Very mild saison, light bodied, easy quaff. Fruity and grassy. Came into its own matched with the salty flatbread.
