bottle... pours a medium neon straw, a huge white head that rises several fingers, ok retention but its a bit of a gusher, be careful pouring... the nose has lots of coriander and lemons, and orange zest, pretty solid... the taste is right on the nose, lots of coriander, citrus zest, a bit harsh and bitter though, not quaffable sadly, a bit boring, needs some sweetness to balance

Bottle at Funkwerks. Aroma is striking, like smelling the inside of a really ripe orange, with notes of some lemon, some nice coriander and spice notes. Flavor is not as spice filled, but has lots of nice sweet orange, lemon, some tropical fruit, nice complimenting bread notes, finishing dry and fairly sweet.

Big thanks to my pusher, Jeff. I was mildly curious as to how this new (to me) brewery would approach what can be the blandest of styles. Pours vibrant straw gold with a vigorous head, rocky and riotous like a good bottle of Dupont. Nose is great, with a lot of yeast and spice, again like a saison, with the wit characteristics in there subtly enough to be an afterthought. Body is lively, medium, and has a nice bit of bite in the palate owing to the sharp citrus rind. Flavors are really well done for the style, like one of those slightly modified saisons from Upright. Flowers, mild white pepper, citrus rind, yeast, all kinds of things happening. Really good stuff. Id buy this on the reg in a heartbeat if available to me locally.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy pale golden yellow color with golden lemon yellow hues and one finger frothy white head that slowly fades into lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind. Zesty, earthy aroma with hints of pepper and coriander as well as some lemon peel/zest, straw and grass. Faint alcohol presence in the nose. Lighter end of medium bodied with a crisp, zesty, spicy character up front . Hints of Pepper, lemon zest, coriander and ginger. Bready yeast adds fullness to the body without being to overpowering. Lots of sweet cutis especially lemon peel. Well balanced and easy to drink.

From the bottle at SAVOR 2011. Served in a goblet. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a large and fizzy white head. Good ringy lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward a bit of light wheat and grain with some coriander and orange people. Flavor balances the spice and fruit with the backing malt quite well. Light body and fizzy carbonation, going into a dry finish. A bit of white pepper in the finish. Very nicely done. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-09-2011

bottle pour, clear.
just a pretty, feminine nose. tons of herbaceous notes--tea like, esp chamomile, but lots of zesty lemongrass, verbana, lemon oil. a bit of garrigue--thyme, sage, mint, etc, without being overwhelmingly potpourri like. really, very expressive and quite compelling.

sadly the mouth falls very flat. all the gorgeous floral complexity in the nose just compresses into something dull. maybe my palate is on an upswing for new world/obviousness, but this just doesnt quite deliver. oh well.
bonus points for non-barbie pretty.
