Lighter saison style. Nice mouthfeel. Slightly sweet. Nice lingering saison flavor. Not as dry as advertised, but good. Not spicy as I would've expected.

Served on draft at Maduro in Madison, WI at the GTMW pre-party. Pours a clear pale golden with a thin creamy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of pale bready notes, caramel, spice and herbal hops. The taste is bread, caramel, spices and herbal hops. Medium bodied. Refreshing. ebone1988 (2233) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2016

Draft at MBGSF. Pours a deep gold/bronze with a sticky head. Nose is somewhat spicy and dusty, complimented by fresh meyer lemon and lemongrass as well. Light honey comes through also. Taste is quite earthy, though fresh. More of the distant citrus notes and fresh grass come through, as do rustic malt and bread notes. finish clean. More saison than biere de garde to me.

On tap at Maduro. Poured clear, bright golden with a tall, creamy white head. The aroma picked up crisp lemon and grass over a complementary bready base.. really enjoyed it. The flavor found meaty lemon and bread at the core, with more tart lemon, wheat, and dry white spices around.. perfect balance, with lovely, lingering lemon on the dry finish. Lighter-bodied and crisp on the palate.. dry and refreshing.. very good stuff. GTAEgeek (2502) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Sample at the Secret Stash Bash. Light straw color, with a huge white head. The aroma is faint lemons, hay, biscuit dough, and some mellow yeasty funk. The flavor is sweet and a little musty in the finish. Light body, crisp feel, with a smooth, creamy, and mellow finish. I thought it was brave of Bell’s to bring this to a fest with lots of big stouts and sour ales, but I was impressed, in spite of the competition. It is a very light, flavorful, and wonderfully unique beer. I wish I had a bottle to age, and see how it ages.
