A: The pour on this one is a pale yellow color with a rather tall white head.
S: A very nice fruit aroma to start this one off. Tons of pears and apples with a light dosing of spice. The hop notes are subtle and there is plenty of yeast and bread, the latter of which adds a bit of sweetness.
T: As with the aroma, a strong flavor of pear, apple, and even some citrus and sweet apple juice. There is a very light pepper flavor as well as some bread and sweet, pale malts. There is a fair bit of yeast and a light hop bitterness.
M: The body is medium and the carbonation is just above medium.
O: I really enjoyed the fruit notes that this beer had. A bit sweet for how I like my saisons, but overall very well done. Ratman197 (14845) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2012

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate fruit, hop and yeast aroma.

Bottle… Pours yellow and clear with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Fantastic retention. The bouquet furnishes notes of pear, white pepper, coriander and red apple. Medium to full-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor presents fruity, tannic pear and a generous component of earthy bitterness. Tart, tangy, pear finish.
