COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starting with a base of German wheat & pale malts this crisp slightly hazy foundation was then accented with a blend of Sterling & Citra hops providing a intricate blend of herbal grass & tangerine citrus flavors and aroma. to pull this all together and to complete the ’cleansing’ aspect of my vision i gently finished the ale off with a touch of white sage, lending a mild earthy spice character to the blend. of course let’s not forget our house saison yeast that brought all the elements together leaving a dry yet intricate finish.

@ ACBF 2011. The aroma is spicy en veggie. Hazy, yellow coloured beer with a white head. The taste is light bitter, bit sweet, has some citric sourness, malts, spice. Interesting.

Poured from a 750 ml into a tulip. Pours a nice golden color with a big pillowy head. Aroma is primarily grassy and floral with hints of orange and some other citrus, decent smelling. The floral hops come to the front in the taste, supported by grassy and orangey notes. This one is relatively light and crisp and pretty refreshing. A little overcarbonated, which detracts from the floral and citrus in the taste. Overall, a drinkable and refreshing beer, but not outstanding.

KyotoLefty (10254) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 1, 2011
Bomber. Ginger and spice nose, warm wheat. Very spicy, interesting, sage, too much herbs. Orange and cloudy with lace. Big, sweet, fruity and herbal flavor with sage, herbal bitterness, also a tart edge and a bit of banana. Nice fruit. Finish is a bit dull. Interesting.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 28, 2011
750ml bottle from ksurkin. Pours a hazy orange with a thick, foamy, long lasting, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, oranges, herbal tea and honey. Flavor of sweet honey malt, tart Belgian yeast and a zesty citrus bitterness. Light body with lively carbonation and a frothy mouth feel. This is a nice, easy drinking beer, the spices are a bit strong for my palate but it is still enjoyable.

phaleslu (10239) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2011
750 ml bottle from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a hazy, deep golden color with a big, fizzy eggshell white head that settles quickly into a lasting thin cap. A little foam came out of the cap upon opening, but not a gusher. Aroma of basement funk, sage, spice, floral hops, hay, white bread, tropical fruits, and candi sugar. Flavor of sage, spices, pepper, pale malts, tropical fruits, wheat, crackers, and straw. Medium-bodied, with a spicy, bubbly mouthfeel and high carbonation. Not an easy drinker- a little harsh on the palate- and I generally like a wit that I can savor a little longer. But otherwise a really nice wit.

Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2011
Geruch süßlich, kräuterig und gewürzig nach Salbei, etwas hefig. Süßlich-gewürzter Start. Mitte herber, erinnert an Cassis mit Salbeieinflüssen. Herb-trocken und leicht säuerlich abschließend. Gut - ziemlich abgefahren.

It doesn’t get much more earthy than this. This brewer has balls and imagination. I can think of so many places, situations and pairings where this beer would be magnificent. It’s really a crime to drink this beer alone and not paired with anything. The sage is brilliant. Gourmet. I would like a little richer body. Truly artistic.

notalush (5873) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Wit? - more like a saison - hugely carbonated, fizzy pour - hazy golden - dry aroma and dusty yeast, strong sage, toasted wheat, wildflowers, mild phenols - dry up front, with strong wheat, moderate phenols - a little sweet on the tail end - sage, peppery character, orange and other citrus - cobweb - chewy yeast - good, but a bit too sweet on the end for my taste.

arminjewell (9635) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Bottle thanks to Brandon, slightly over gushed but nice slightly hazy orange yellow pour with white head, aroma has lots of sage, grass, tangerine, pear, lots of apricot. Really nice and fruity. Taste is nice sage, some pine, grass, touch of tangerine, apricot, some nice yeasty notes, touch of biscuit, with a slightly sweet finish. Would be nice to be a bit drier, but overall tasty.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013 Bottle courtesy of Brandon. Thanks! Cloudy orange appearance with a big, fluffy white head. Floral, citrusy, slightly spicy, slightly yeasty, wheat malty nose. Floral, herby, slightly spicy, light wheat malty, a touch tart flavor. Pretty tasty, interesting beer.
