Bottle to tulip, the appearance was a golden burnt copper color with a thin white foamy little head that fell off at a moderate pace. Slight lace.
The aroma had some toast/white bread, floral, funky, light pear, green apple, white pepper, lemongrass, sweet grass and a little bit of sour underneath.
The flavor was mostly funky with sturdy elements of sour, tart and sweet. Slight herbal quality came in and then the aftertaste was the full on blend of all of the prior mentioned tastes appealing the same in the finish.
The palate was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine.
Overall, second beer by Transmitter that I had and I liked this one. egajdzis (6730) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2016

750 ml bottle from Sparrow, 7/22/16. Pours an unclear golden-orange with a large, fizzy froth of off-white head and some drippy lace. Lots of spice and yeast, pepper, earth, some lemongrass, and a little peach. Nice overall mix of flavors here. Slightly overly carbonated, but otherwise it drinks pretty nicely. Finishes a little dry. Another quality yeast forward beer from Transmitter.

Poured into a shaker showing well filtered yellow with sparse white foam.
The nose shows light apples and sweet malts.
The palate is well carbonated and fluffy, like a typical saison. Light spiciness throughout and a rather large bitterness from the hops on the finish. Spiciness appears once again on the end. Overall, it doesn’t really work together at all. mansquito (6911) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Hops Hill, Brooklyn tap: Pours light golden with a white head. Aroma is spice, full fruitiness, and some grain. Taste is lightly spicy, very fruity (not citrusy), a bit sweet, and not that dry. This is very clearly a saison, but it is not the dry kind, rather the sweet kind. The peppery touch is nice. Good, not great. I had this right after the Prairie Brett C, so it was facing some tough competition. jbeatty (1258) - New York, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle, 10/08/2014. Pours dull hazy gold, small foamy head on the surface, some lacing built around the edge of the glass. Aroma is sweet pear, mild peach, banana with full-bodied malty yeast notes, touch of pepper, grass. Taste is mildly sweet malts, fresh hay, stone fruits, nice citrus hop accents. Medium body, drinks very easy. Not the typical saison profile, more round slightly sweet, but a nice change of pace.
