On tap at the brewery. Poured a clear golden color with a moderate white head that faded to a soapy layer and left some spotty lacing. Aroma of fruit (lemon, some pear), earthy, dusty yeast, some pepper, and a herbal hoppiness. Smooth, lightly sweet entry with a light citrus tatrness moves into a dry, spicy bitterness with a moderate yeastiness paired with the same herbal hops found in the nose that linger into the finish. Moderate carbonation and dry mouth feel. Overall, the dryness is nice and often seems to be lacking in American saisons, not so in this one.
(Draught) Pours a golden body with a small white head. Aroma of florals, pear, herbs, yeast, and apple. Flavor of pepper, florals, and citrus with a dry finish. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2011
