Bid “UP’S” go out to Dr DogBeer as part of Secret Santa 2009 – thanks Tom.
22 oz bottle. May 2009 bottling, Batch Five.
Delightful, cloudy orange pour with a super head, retention and lace. Lovely.
Dry in the nose with some very light white pepper, but to be honest the nose is not this beers’ strength.
Tastes are those of light citrus marmalade and then some increased (compared to the nose) white pepper. Plenty of gentle herb and medicinal like hop presence and a sweeter-than-one-would expect finish. Like all good Saison’s some moreish aftertastes. VERY light grapefruit in the back end; some spice notes.
Light and drinkable, the mouthfeel is one that one craves with some simple, light carbonation.
Very nice effort from a (relatively) fledgling brewery that I will be keeping an optimistic eye on.
