650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 5/13/13.

Appearance - Clear golden body. White collar.

Smell - Musty yeast. A little bit lemony and acidic. Slight yogurt aroma. Kinda hoppy, too. Has a little bit of a mineral character.

Taste - Not as dynamic. Yogurt character and mineral character combine to be a little bit metallic. Lemon and citrus. Slightly sweet malt and a grainy bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium light. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Surprisingly good. I didn't have high hopes for this, especially since it's old, but it's got a nice citrus flavor that almost comes off as tart.

Bottle shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul!

The beer is pale golden and transparent with a small off white collar. The aroma brings citrus, alcohol, malt. Something odd in there as well. Metallic and mineral notes. Aggressive flavor and a bit harsh on the palate. Light bodied with an acetic finish. Stone fruits and yeast. Mediocre.

COAST's first take on a saison. Self-described as "...tart, dry, and funky. With Brett".

A: Pours a hazy straw yellow, with 1.5 fingers width of white head that dissipates down at a moderate rate and leaves a fair amount of honeycomb lacing.

S: Tart lactic acidity is the first aroma I get. Sour lemon, along with grass and hay, a bit of oak. There are some spicy notes as well, subtle hop characters maybe? Some wet hay funk ties it all together. Excellent nose.

T: Funky, mildly tart, sour citrus like lemon/lime. There's an oaky-vanilla flavor that lingers in the finish. Some sweet citrus characters as well, and a faint bitterness. Brett funk builds as it warms.

M/D: Lighter bodied, carbonation initially seems low but actually holds up nicely. Crisp and refreshing with exceedingly good drinkability for a beer with a relatively high ABV. Drying on the finish leaving you eager for the next sip.

O: Another extremely well done beer by COAST. Its amazing that they never seem to miss. Hits all the elements that a Saison should have, and ties them all together beautifully without having any one character dominate. Excellent beer.
