COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer you are holding is unique. A special strain of yeast and a warm fermentation produces a beer of exceptional flavor and aroma. An extended secondary maturation and bottle conditioning ensures all these unique qualities are preserved and evolve over time. Serve at 50F in a tulip glass.

What to expect
This tawny orange beer pours with a rocky white head. Aromas of passion fruit, tangerine, and black pepper hit the nose. Flavor is a cascade of orange, lemon verbena, ginger and pepper. And in a second it is gone, finishing with a dry and lingering bitterness that awaits another sip.

Cellaring Information
Store upright in a dark dry place at cellar temperature (ideally at 50 degree). Cellar limit is 2 years.

euniceradio (494) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2017 On tap. Pours clouded straw gold, good white head. Aroma of peach, bubblegum, floral and yeast funk. Taste of same with some lemon zest, earth, soap and soda water. Mouthfeel is mod for style with heavy carb. Almost that of seltzer. Finish is slightly funky for style. Expected more yeast influence for style. More hop bitter in finish.

Tap @ Angels Trumpet Ale House: Cloudy gold with a fresh yeast aroma. Banana peels. Smooth flavor and true saison instead of the popular sour/saison mix.

jonno (2616) - JAPAN - AUG 28, 2016
Very straight forward Saison. Doesnt have the quality or character of a Fantome or Dupont. If this is their top offering I see no need to delve further in to their line up. Solid beer, but there are many, many better examples.

maekchu (3613) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 14, 2016
Tap at Imazato. Big sweet fruity, peachy nose, with some honey notes. Dark amber/straw color. Thick sweet peach, moderate bittering. The bittering seems a bit much for this style. Medium body. Tasty, but overall a bit too heavy and sweet -- not cloying exactly, but a bit much.

KyotoLefty (9634) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2016
Tap at Imazato. Deep gold, hazy, with lace. Nose of peaches, grains, light citrus. Grainy flavor, lemon / grapefruit, light funk. Sweet and a bit heavy and thick. Not so impressive.

willisread (2933) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clear gold with very little head that dissipates almost instantly. Light lemon and floral-forward nose with some bubblegum upon opening. Light farmhouse notes as it warms up. Medium to low carbonation. Light yogurty tartness with lemon zest and meringue towards the finish. Finish is a tad boozy, but nice tartness, without being sour. Decent.

mcberko (15404) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
On tap at Angels Trumpet Ale House, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out some rustic farmhouse notes, citrus and biscuity malt. Flavour is complex, with lots of rustic farmhouse notes, citrus and Belgian yeast. Not a totally authentic saison, but better than most, thats for sure. Complex and well-constructed. Excellent.

On tap at St. Augustines on Rare Beer Tap Takeover. Floral aroma. Floral bitterness taste. Aggresive bitterness aftertatse. Interesting.

ttoadee (1335) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Cloudy gold pour, thin white head. Nose is a basket of tropical fruit. Middle is more of the same, with some herbs in there too. Finish is semisweet and a little tangy.
