COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional farmhouse ale made with a very expressive yeast strain that contributes an array of tropical fruit, spice flavors and aromatics. Brewed with a variety of harvest grains including barley, wheat, oats and rye as was likely the case with farmhouse brewers of yore. The result is a complex, refreshing and distinctive example of this esoteric style. Intensely fruity (passion fruit, pineapple, mango, lychee), slightly spicy (clove, white pepper)

Translucent golden straw with a billowing white head. Medium body with high carbonation.

Aroma: classic saison yeast notes like a stone basement full of lychees, apples, pears, mango, and straw. Malt and hop character are pushed into obscurity.

Taste: black pepper and clove yeast phenols dominate up front, followed by a complex mix of pale barley, tart wheat, and a hint of grainy rye.

I’m not generally a fan of saisons, but this is wonderfully fruity, spicy, and grainy -complex and balanced.

One of the best Saison I’ve tasted (maybe together with Amager Bryghus’ "Tulsa Twister"). Crisp mouthfeeling with and tasting a bit sour apple-ish. Golden appearance and high in carbonation. Nice design on the bottle as well.

Pretty decent saison. A little light bodied, but good flavor. Just the right amount of peppery. Low ABV makes this a refreshing, easy-drinking farmhouse, as a saison should be.

Unlike other posters, I happen to think that this example of a saison is very well done. Despite its low alcohol and high sessionability, the white pepper and tropical fruit notes are highly complex and balanced. The use of oats creates a lovely mouthfeel, but the shining star is the yeast. Beautiful beer.
