750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled in March 2013. Pours moderately hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big apple, apple skin, pear, lemon zest, hay, grass, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, light caramel, musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of apple, pear, lemon zest, coriander, clove, pepper, hay, grass, wheat, bread, light caramel, musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of peppery bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pear, apple, lemon zest, clove, pepper, coriander, hay, grass, wheat, bread, light caramel, musty funk, and earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice balance and complexity of malt, hop, and fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very crisp and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent hoppy saison style. All around great balance and complexity of hop, malt, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very crisp and smooth to sip on for 9%. A very enjoyable offering. Errl (2577) - Plano, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2013

From a 750 ml bottle at the Jester King Brewery, Austin, TX.Yorker (2119) - Holstebro, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2013
Clear golden colour with an average sized frothy white head.
Sweet hoppy fruitiness and very strong sweetness in the aroma.
Strong fruity, spicy and peppery flavour. Alcohol warms a lot.
75 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy golden with a huge white head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is yeast, a little funk, pepper, and fruit. Flavour is much like the aroma – with a dry finish. More fascinating than good. Theydon_Bois (21480) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2013
