Tap at BT. Wow! This stuff is great- reminded me so much of a stillwater saison. Pours a nice bright hazed blonde with a nice lasting sticky white head- good lacing. Aroma is initially skewed towards a lemon-lime citrus character from the yuzu which I like- then you get some more strange citrus notes from the yeast- tangerine, orange peel, fruity notes, light phenolic- some earth and sea spray- then just a hint of peppery notes. Flavor is big fresh bready pils, tons of fresh fruity french saison notes- tangerine, fresh orange, light grass, dusty earth, biscuit, pine, pear and pepper with some lime juice and yuzu- spicy and fruity balance is perfect- very dry easy drinking finish. Extremely well done. I seriously would have guessed this was a new stillwater beer from the way it was fermented. Crazy good. Wish I drank more of this.

In short: A superb dry highly-sessionable Saison
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy yellow blonde body. Medium white head with good retention leaving good lacings
In long: The strong nose is moderately rustic, herbal (lemongrass mainly) and white pepper. Taste is crisp pale malts with very low sweetness sensation, moderate rustic character, a touch of pineapples, some citrus fruits, herbs, white pepper. The beer has a nice mineral spices character that adds some kind of salty astringency and all that makes the beer feel very dry. This beer was released at the 12th anniversary of the brewpub. It was one of the many beers release on that day. They had this light sessionable Saison as well as a rare barrel highly-rated aged Scotch Ale, a big beer aged in Pinot barrels, some sour ales and more... And which one do you think I preferred? WRONG!!!! Unless you said the Saison then youre right.

Tap at the brewpub. Very pale straw-coloured pour. The aroma is very light and spicy. Lots of soft minerally bitterness and a touch of lemongrass and white pepper. A little bit of soft bitterness along with a light floral character. Bone dry with a flinty minerality. Awesome really.

Nez trs parfum de sucre, de poivre, de gingembre... (ma douce moiti ma avou quelle porterait ce parfum!) La noce de soie reprsente un rafrachissement raffin avec une lgre amertume florale et un got poivr sans tre piquant. Mon coup de coeur du Mondial de la Bire 2011.

(Un verre sur place) Le liquide a une robe blonde passablement embrouille. Une tte blanche flotte pour lternit. Quelques pointes de dentelles sur le verre. Le nez est fait de lime et de citronnelle avec des pices, des herbes et des fleurs. Le poivre est davantage prsent lorsque le liquide se tempre. Quelques notes de gingembre confit en milieu de parcours. Les saveurs sont agrables, pleines de notes citronnes et doucement piquantes de poivre blanc. Prsence ravissante des houblons et du bl. Flaveurs goteuses daromates et dherbes. Traces de camomille? Les saveurs sexpriment davantage en dbut de dgustation. En bouche, le liquide a un corps bien rond avec un ptillement efficace et une texture soyeuse. La finale se fait sur des notes amres et lgrement poivres. Trs apprciable.

Un verre sur place avec une pizza la pancetta. Bire blonde-jaune bl quelque peu trouble. La formation mousseuse est importante et durable. Les saveurs explosent au nez, linfluence de lAsie, du citron, gingembre , de la citronnelle. Cest trs frais. La bouche offre au dpart de beaux pices, du poivre entre autre et avec le temps la complexit de cette bire vient brouill les cartes avec des notes de gingembre et de citron qui peu peu prennent le dessus sur le poivre. Un franc succs.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Big, spicy, almost smoky aroma, sweet potato, clam, minerals, awesome complexity. Perfectly dry, crisp, sweaty yeast, chamomile, grass in the flavor. Dope.
