Great American Beer Festival, 2012. Opaque yellow color, appropriate for a saison. It sweet with yeast, as well as coriander and yeast. Good palate, and the lemongrass nicely compliments the other flavors. Ibrew2or3 (8814) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Poured up at GABF 2012 with a crystal clear gold with a thin white head. The aroma has a nice level of saison like yeasty spiciness backed up by some sugary malt sweetness followed by just a light sense of earthy notes. The taste seems similar with sweet sugary malts mixing with spicy saison yeastiness with a light degree of lemon grass notes that add an earthy tone to the experience. To help balance out the sweetness I get a black pepper note from time to time. Pretty tasty stuff.
