BCTC. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a thin white head. Cheesy, candy corn, acetaldehyde. Smooth and tangy. Decent easy drinking saison. PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Bottle at BCTC 2009: Hazy golden dense white head. Bright aroma- lemony with a touch of bretty character and white pepper. Crisp lively feel on the palate. Dry bright flavor with some mild brux character- leathery and lemony citruses mesh with a mineral dryness and white pepper. Dry and spicy. A nice Saison.

Had a chance to sample this one at the Iron Hill Media while I was there. Pretty nice pour, hazy straw yellow, with a nice fluffy head and modest retention. The nose isn’t what it could be, with some fairly by-the-number yeast notes and some soft fruits in there for good measure. Full mouthfeel, and a nice lingering finish. The flavor is enjoyable, with yeast and fruits playing around nicely against a solid malt backdrop. But overall it’s nothing to really write home about.

Bottle on V day. Fairly sweet, light on the spicey aspects that typically make saisons great. Went really well with Filet Mignon, but just didnt have a ton going on, easy drinker, but a little lacking in the flavor department. DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 25, 2009

Tap at Earth. Clear gold with a thin white head. Floral, spicy aroma with pepper, clove, ginger, grass, and bubblegum. Fully yet dry taste with grass, dirt, spice, and bubblegum. Delicious! stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Tap@WestChester. Very Spicy, but pretty good. Glad it was a 4oz sample, though.
