Tap: Poured a bright slightly hazy golden color ale with a nice medium size pure white head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of typical Belgian saison yeast is very interesting with some light floral hops presence. Taste was well balance between the typical lightly funky yeast with a nice malt bill with some medium sweet notes and a light floral hoppy finish. Full body with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well done and this definitely makes me want to try some more of their beers. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2008
on tap at the brewpub. Lightly hazy golden in color with a medium white head, nice retention. Aroma of saison yeast- citrus, peppery, some musty basement with some pale malts in the background. Taste is nice and refreshing- pale/pils malt sweetness with citrus, pepper, and light yeasty musty basement. Some light hop bitterness in the finish. Could have been a bit more yeasty in the flavor profile, but this was solid overall. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2008
In short: Halfway between a Witbier and a Saison. Very good stuff.
josarah (112) - Hinesburg, Vermont, USA - JUN 30, 2008
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is slightly wild with strong notes of lemon light spiciness. Taste has a lots of tart fruits (pineapples and lemon mainly), some spicy notes, a lot of wheat, a little dough,
It doesn’t know if it wants to be a wild Saison or a refreshing Witbier. This is either an extra-refreshing Saison or a wild Witbier. Either way it’s very good. I don’t mind when a beer cannot make up its mind, it’s a beer not a woman, I don’t have to tell it that being a Saison suits it fine and being a wibier suits it fine too.
Draft at Brewpub: Tiny head with tiny bubbles, light straw color, earthy sweet aroma. This is a great farmhouse ale, a little bit of funky, a quickly dissipating carbonation,a great summer beer. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 10, 2008
(BCTC, draft) Hazy lemon-yellow body, medium white head. Aroma is medium sweet, lemon, some yeast, flower. Taste is medium sweet, herbal, some orange, pepper. Creamy light-medium body. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2010
BCTC 2008. Tap at the American Flatbread tent at the brewers camp. Pours a hazed golden and nice white head. Aroma is lemon zest with lots of doughy crackery wheat and grain - turns to slight DMS and vegetal with some grass, phenols and fruity ester. Flavor is doughy cracker with cobweb hint, phenolic spicy, coriander, light banana and clove, zesty lemon and almost a lactic hint at the end to keep it tart- still some DMS vege. Mostly dry. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Sample @ BCTC 2008. Tasty beer but seemed more like a witbier. Wit looking golden yellow pour. Citrusy, light yeastiness. Didnt really get too much saison here but none the less a tasty quaffer egajdzis (6499) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2008
[BCTC 08] Poured a hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of earthy yeast, honey, some floral hops, and spices. Taste of pils malt, some tart, snappy wheat, toasted dough, light honey, some citrus, grass, pepper, and a lightly dry finish.
