look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bomber into a pint.

A- nice straw-haze body with a thin white head. The lacing sticks in whisps as you drink.

S- apricots and citrus with that hint of pepper from Belgian yeast. No real hop aroma present.

T- complex citrus. Maybe lemons with a hint of white peppercorns. The pepper slowly grows in intensity at the close, while the lemon disappears completely. Fruity, with a tinge of alcohol.

M- oily compared to what I was expecting, but not necessarily bad. I was expecting something like more of a tripel.

O- I'm not well educated on classic saisons, but this was good overall. I generally sip the new, dark-roasted, varieties. However, I can say that this was fairly interesting and complex.

P.S.- the band is pretty great as well. Think new school Nada Surf.

Poured from the corked 750 ml bottle in the tumbler. Attractive sudsy look with the yellow amber color. Plenty of carbonation tickling the palate. I'd call it more of a big Saison, but it does have some of the refreshing quality of the Farmhouse end of the spectrum.

Fruity and rather sweet, and it doesn't dry out as much as most brews with the Belgian yeast. Still, it has a pretty good balance among fruity, sweet, and yeasty bitterness. It's plenty flavorful, with a a big buttery flavor along with the pears and apple skins. There is a butterscotch tang that melds the sugary with the tart. The yeasty flavors are bold but not overwhelming. Still, it's a big mouthful of flavor.

This is really a pretty good Saison, and it's my favorite of the Telegraph brews, up til now one of my least favorite California breweries. This stuff gets around. I bought my bottle at QFC in the University shopping center in Seattle.
