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.

Poured draft into flight glass. Slightly hazy, golden straw in color. Sage aroma hits the nose & palate coming across with strong floral notes, but nicely balanced. Perfect carbonation, refreshing & lovely.

Parece un cruce entre Witbier y Saison. Color amarillo pajizo, con reflejos dorados, turbio, con capa de espuma de dos dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación alta. Textura acuosa y algo efervescente. El aroma es un tanto unidimensional, con la salvia un poco más remarcada de lo que debería. También se puede captar lima, pan y algo de plátano. En boca es super refrescante y afrutada (lima, naranja), con presencia, de nuevo, del trigo (toque de pan, plátano menos presente) y final floral, herbal y especiado (mucha salvia). Menos seca de lo habitual en una Saison. Hiper refrescante postgusto a hierbas. Deliciosa.

It has a strong aroma of orange peel plus lemon and coriander. The hops dominate over the top of more traditional farmhouse flavours and there’s a very warm alcohol aftertaste that lingers in the back of the throat.

EvanFriend (595) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2017
This is a beer that would benefit heavily from scaling the hops back by at least half. Tropical hop notes dominate the flavor to the point where anything else struggles to get through at all. There are more complex flavors underneath those hops, but they’re faint to the point where they’re hard to identify. This has potential, but it’s overhopped to the point that it’s ruined.

3.4
McWorta (1627) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 24, 2017
Golden light hazy with a frothy white head. Aromas of sage are dominant with some notes of barnyard, wheat and light funk which could all be more balanced. Light tangy, bit slick with a medium body. Briskly sweet rolling over the palate with a light acidity and light bitterness combined with a pronounced sage flavour. Medium lasting finish.
