Decent sized, bright white head of fine bubbles. Good carbonation. Fruity and grassy aroma. Little bit of spices, pepper and lemon. Hazy bright golden orange. Fruity, grassy and a little spicey. Even a hint of smoke in there. Dry with a little tartness. Like biting into a very tart granny smith apple. Something is a little different in there. A little shaper and rougher than many saisons. Finish a tart again with some more apples. A decent saison but a little rough around the edges.

Bottle. Pours gold, with a white head. Aromas are spice, yeast, citrus, with bits of wheat and grass. Flavors are citrus, spice, yeast, malt, hops and yeast. Medium body, and a nice sweetish finish, that eventually turns a little dry. Very nice.

thanks to weeare138 for this big bottle tat was corked and caged. poured a golden color with a big fluffy white head that took forever to go down and left a lot of lacing. aroma big citrus nose with pepper and yeast, orange, musty. flavor a nice orange and lemon yeast and a nice bite of hops. I think this my 5th saison and it is the best I have had. I not a big fan of this style but I think this one is changing the taste buds

Tap at Royal. Wrong taphandle, says its royal weisse, says saison on the menu. Color is translucent orange gold, though, so its saison, and its got a low retention eggshell head. Lightly hoppy, yeasty, lemon wheat aroma. Malty and lemony in flavor, nice ssession strength and balanc, with bitter lemon hop finish. As flavorful as some triples (I wrote that when I thought it was a wheat and I was suprised). Bubblegummy. Fairly nice, probably the best beer I had at Royal last night.

White pepper and orange blossom nose. Coriander, allspice, clove and apricot hints come thru as it warms. Becomes more citric and floral on the palate with jasmine hints. Very clean dry and spicy finish. Bottle

Bottle - corked and caged - courtesy of hopdog! Empties a vibrant gold, like an autumn sunset, with an eruption of foam. Very lively! The aroma instantly releases light buttery notes, wheat, light peppery hints, Belgian yeast, in-bloom flowers, light lemon meringue pie, and mild spices. Faint candyish fruits dance in the background. Taste blends lemon cheesecake, light buttered popcorn, hay bales, spices, Belgian yeast and a blossoming flowers. Light earthiness in spots and maybe a hint of perfume. Delicious! Body is light, arid and whispy, but still feels rounded and full. Finishes with light grains, lemon zest, light horseblanket, bit of earthiness, mild spices, yeast, and candied fruits. Very nice stuff! Surprisingly lower than expected ratings for this...
