On tap at CBBs 2nd anniversary event. 650 yen for a glass. Really nice classic saison nose, funk & spice. Really nice soft body. Lovely flavor, earthy spicy saison, some cloves. Really refreshing.

Bottle shared at RBWG, the Grand Tasting. Pours a pale, hazy gold with a medium off-white head. Notes of grass, spices, dust, cobwebs, veggies, pepper, straw, rice, and pale and bready malts. Medium-bodied, with a dry mouthfeel and medium to high carbonation. Pretty interesting saison, though I wasnt wild about it.

Bottle shared by Ferris at the RBWG 2014 grand tasting, thanks! Pours a cloudy light gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has lots of flora and grass with a sweet grain backing. Flavor has a very floral note with sweet grains and a hint of grass bite.

750 ml bottle sample at RBWG. Pours a hazy yellow color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have herbal hops, citrus, lemongrass, a definite character from the sake yeast, soft, light spice. A nice way to start a few hours of drinking.
