Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery Saison D'Ete

One of the brewpubs that I visited while in Boulder for Great American Beer Fest was Mountain Sun. They had some of their all time favorite beers on tap for the festival, so I ordered a glass of Saison D'Ete (and forgot to snap a photo of it). The beer pours a golden color with a bubbly white head. The aroma is faint but has hints of grassy hops with lemon and pepper hiding in the background. The mouth feel is very bubbly on the tongue. The taste is light and lemony with some pepper and pine, providing a great spiciness on the tongue. There is a dry finish with an earthiness to it, hints of dirt lingering around for a while. The alcohol content is not available online, but I would guess it to be about 6.0% ABV. The Saison D'Ete was a refreshing beer with a clean body, and I would suggest you give it a try if you are ever in Boulder.
