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.

maekchu (3816) - 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.

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 (3250) - 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 (16956) - 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.

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.

CanIHave4Beers (4183) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 4, 2016
On Draught
Pours a hazy yellow color with a big head & nice lacing on the glass.

Aroma is fruity with some peach & banana. Lightly spicy with a bunch of wet rocks.

The flavor is a touch sweet for my liking, but its nicely bitter with some earthy minerality, some orange and peach like hoppiness, a rather intrusive spicy element & a reasonably controlled banana element.

Gurthnar (5718) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle at Vienna tasting February 2016. Many thanks! Hazy orange colour. Slightly sweetish, with moderate funk and pleasant fruity complexity filling the flavour. Really easy drinking, tasty. Just not your typical saison.
